Ryobi 31cc Trimmer Plus won't prime

I have a Ryobi 31cc Trimmer Plus (725r) that won't prime. I have drained all the gas to see if when I pump the primer bulb I get air flow, which I do. I then refilled the gas tank, pumped the primer bulb, you can see the bubbles when pushing in on the bulb, but no gas is being sucked in. I put the cap on and primed it, still won't prime. When I remove the cap you can hear the air in the tank escape. Any help would be appreicated. Thanks.

Sounds like the fuel lines are bad and need to be replaced. Have a good one. Geo

check your fuel line for a crack, especially near and inside the fuel tank. Sounds like you are drawing air and not fuel. You will probably need to replace the fuel lines. LOL
