Poulan 185R trimmer gas lines

I wonder if anyone can help me find info on which way the gas lines go on the Poulan 185 R trimmer, I had a friend helping me and he took the gas lines off before I had a chance to see which went where, it is a Walbro carb and this one has two lines coming of the primer.

The suction side of the primer goes to the short line that connects to the side of the carb. The pressure side of the primer goes to the line going into the gas tank without the filter on the end. The other line in the tank with the filter on the end goes to the other fitting on the carb.

I have the same problem you had. Let me know if you figured it out.

Okay, I figured it out.
On the WT-298 carb the gas port at the fuel pump end goes to the tank and the line with the filter. The suction line to the primer bulb connects to the other port on the metering end of the carb. The other line from the primer bulb goes to the line to the tank without the filter.
