Echo 2100 power blower, primer bulb wont fill with fuel

im working on a 2100 echo power blower. the customer ran boat gas through it, so i cleaned the carb, put in a new kit, new primer bulb, new grommet with lines, new fuel filter, new spark plug, new vent cap. tried running it but wont get fuel into the primer bulb. im running out of ideas. it gets good pressure coming from the lines, when you prime it a few times and take off the fuel line, gas squirts everywhere. it just isnt filling the primer bulb

just hooked up a new carb to it and it pumps fine. would the boat gas have ruined his carb?

Depends how long it sat. Have heard the jet is pretty fragile

it shouldn't have ruined it... you might just have to clean it some more. Something is still blocked, probably in the screen inlet area or the needle valve.
