MTD Snow Blower, no gas getting through.
I have a MTD snow blower with electric start. I took it apart today to try and find out why it would not start. (long story short) I found that the "primer button hose to the carborator" was dry rotted and worn through. Went out shopping for new one. I found something close and installed it but still not starting. I replaced the spark plug. Electric connection is good. No plug ups in the fuel line. The fuel line from the tank to the carborator is clear and flows well when removed. But no gas getting to the carborator when installed. Won't start. So was fulling around with the fuel line and ripped a hole in it with the plyers. With that hole in the line, gas flows to the carborator (and drips out the hole) It started when I had the hole in the fuel line. So, I repair the hole in the fuel line and guess what now no starts again. Could the hole in the fuel line have helped get the gas to the carb and now that I fixed the hole in the fuel line then no gas to the CARB? Any ideas would be appreciated. Could the differnt/new primer button hose that I installed be effecting things?
