    At this point, I think you are barking up the wrong tree. There seems to be a few problems. I think you have fixed one when you replaced the fuel lines and the crack in the grommet when you replaced it.

    The question is, did you use a fuel stablizer when you put the trimmer away.
    If you didn't, that could cause other problems....

    I think the check valve in the primmer base, # 11 in the break down has failed.
    You should be pulling fuel up to the primmer now.

    You can take the carb apart and clean everything, use either carb cleaner with the little straw, or break clean. Compressed air if you have it. Hit every orifice and passageway.

    With out having the unit hands on, everything here would be a educated guess.

    Here is a link to one of the places I use.

    Aren't these like a $30 Zama? Maybe just pop a new one on?

    Yeah, that's good advice, especially on the less expensive carbs.

    Then, if your feeling frisky, take the time to go through the "old carb". I've done the same with a Stihl bg55. Since I keep the "spare" in the glove box, no doubt ill never have a carb problem again on that blower.
