Weedeater won't prime

I replaced both fuel lines and filter on weedeater. Lines are on same way they came off. When I try to prime it a pears to prime backwards pulling fuel in through small return line and pumps it back out through larger line and filer. Very confused.

The primer bulb pulls fuel into the carb and returns excess back to the tank. So that appears to be working fine. Check your spark plug. Does it even cough? Is the gas old? Try squirting some starter fluid into the air filter intake and see what happens.
