No gas appears to come up through the 2nd plastic tube when I try to prime it by pushing clear plastic bubble. 1st tube seems OK and a couple times it ran for about 5 seconds before dying. It is a MAC 99-SL model. Thanks for any help.

The 2 tubes that run from the tank to the carb are a primer tube and a return tube. When you push the bulb it draws fuel from the tank priming the carb.If you continue to push the bulb it should return fuel to the tank through the 2nd tube. Perhaps since you are now having trouble and looking closely you are seeing that one tube has no fuel movement beyond the priming...Mike
