Mac 3200 chainsaw, I replaced the fuel lines and am not
sure if they are right. I have them run from tank to primer ball
to the pump side of the carb. other side carb. over flow tank. I pump the ball and pull 3 or 4 times it run for 5-10 sec.

It's only getting enough fuel to run for that 10 seconds,you must of mixed up a host,so the only fuel it gets is when you prime it.

Hello k8dxe!

The primer outlet should pump fuel into the tank, the suction side should be connected to the carb overflow, and the fuel supply line from the tank should connect to the carb supply.
