Walbro carb for wildthing (poulan) Chain saw

Anyone have this prob with carb?

I have replaced the acetone pump and gasket, and the regulator and gasket. Pretty sure that I have everything in the right order. I have checked the fuel lines 10 times but I can't get it to prime correctly. I did have the lined to the primer bulb backwards and could not push fuel into the carb (obviously) so then I switched them and now it creates a vacuume but fuel won't get into the bulb. Sometimes the bulb wont expand. Any ideas?

Sounds like the carb is clogged and needs cleaning.

((acetone pump and gasket,,& regulator and gasket.)) Don't really know what you mean by this.. If the bulb sometimes won't expand, then I suspect the carb needs a good cleaning with a new kit installed

sounds like you have the two gaskets switched the thin gasket goes next to the carb.Maybe that will help.
