prime bulb not filling up with fuel

i have macht 1E44F-5A rotary hoe and could not start. Priming bulb originally supplied has burst our and replaced with other one but fuel does not come in to priming bulb. I can start engine with some fuel injecting directly into carburetor or engine.

The primer bulb won't work if it's sucking air in.

Check for cracked fuel lines. Might also be carburetor issues.
