    Hey guys, I have an echo srm 230.. I went about cleaning the carb a little earlier. I sprayed down everything. Nothing.looked.broken. and I put it back together.. when it was together I tried to.start it up but it wouldn't prime.. I tried a new primer bulb and gas cap... When I go to prime it, the bulb pushes in and sluggishly comes back out. I don't see fuel going up in the line.. any idea of what went wrong?

    You either have the fuel lines on backwards or the fuel filter may be clogged. Try reversing the 2 fuel lines going to the back of the primer bulb,it sounds like they may have got installed wrong.
