New Ryobi Weed Eater Problem

Unit began to die as though out of gas. Found cracked fule line and primer bulb - replaced both. Now will start only after priming cylinder with gas. Runs for a second then dies. Not getting gas. Thoughts?

I moved your post to a thread of its own. Multiple postings in a thread get confusing.

The title you used says "New". Is this a recently purchased unit or are you referring to a new problem?

Give of a model number, age of unit and history leading up to current problem. What brand and model number carburetor is installed on this unit.

Airman has you on the right track... If this is a new unit,, Take it back for warranty... If it's a new problem & it's an older unit & the fuel lines & primer bulb are rotton,, so is the inside of the carb,, You'll need a carb rebuild kit & adjust the meetering lever & also make sure all the bolts around the cylinder & the rest of the engine are tight & the gaskets aren't leaking.....
