craftsman carb connection

I replaced the primer and fuel lines on my craftsman weed whacker, but now can't figure out how to connect them back to the carb. There are 2 lines from the fuel tank, one i'm guessing is the main intake and the other the overflow. It's probably an simple question !!

Both you'r carb. & primmer bulb has two(2) places for lines to be conected.
The line with the fuel filter on it goes straight to the fuel pump side of the carb.Put another hose on the other fitting on the carb.and run it to the prinner bulb.Then run yet another line from the other side of the prinner bulb back inth the fuel tank,this is your return line.

Push primmer 6-7x's if it still wont prine take off the two lines from the back of the primmer and reverce them.Make sure NOT to crimp these lines.That will do it.

On the carb, one line will push air out when you push the primer bulb. This one connects to the line without the filter.
