    Everything was fine until I disconnected fuel line from 6 gallon tank. Clean tank and fresh fuel,reconnected line to tank, Squeezed bulb,went flat, no fuel to motor, increased air pressure in tank. I've checked connections, no problem. I'm thinking bulb or anti-syphon?? Help, hopefully an easy fix. Thanks in advance. :-/

    The bulb is still going the right way, right?

    With a plastic tank I've closed the vent, and put some weight on the tank to prime, then open the vent.

    It seems to me though that the bulbs just do not last.
