I'll try.
Remember, the fuel goes from the filter/tank to the carb, through the carb, then to the primer bulb, then back to the tank. Simple, huh ?

1. from the fuel filter to the brass ell on the carb.

2. From the carbs plastic ell to the short nipple on the primer.

3. From the primer long nipple to the tank.

Try swapping the lines on the primer bulb, see what happens.
Can you suck fuel thru the carb manually? I use a mity-vac, or my Stihl vac/pressure tester, but I reckon you can suck on the fuel line. Could be a stuck inlet needle. Could be the check valves in the primer are shot. Is the primer assy. new?
