Cannot get gas to flow by pressing primer pump after replacing fuel lines on Craftsman "weed eater."

Craftsman Brush Cutter, model 358-798260. I siphoned gas through the larger line from the tank, and it drips out of the carburetor when held lower than the tank; however I cannot get the gas to move into/with the primer pump, and gas will not move into the smaller line. Do you have any suggestions? Also, is the filter that attaches to the end of the larger line in the tank supposed to lie loose, as opposed to fitting in a bracket? I have made sure that the filter is below the level of the gas. ~~Thanks, Leon
