Ryobi weedeater, new primer bubble, gas lines & spark plug, good compression, good spark, will not start and gas/oil mixture spews out of muffler when I pull the cord. Any thoughts? A bad gasket or seal in the carb?

It sounds like it's time for a carb kit.. The meetering diaghragm may be stiff & not allowing the needle to seat.There could be a speck of dirt under the needle valve' but I'm thinking the diaghragms. If you get the repair kit' it comes with a new needle valve.. Roger
