2 Cycle Engine fuel line problem


New to forum, so Hello, everyone!!!
Now my problem. The fuel pickup tubing inside the gas tank of my gas powered edger finally fell apart. I replaced it. But now, when I press the primer button, I'm not getting any fuel flowing from the gas tank into the lines. Bulb is not cracked, I've checked. My question. there's a second line going to the tank from Carb. Does it need to be deep enough in the tank to be covered with gas? Reason I ask is that when I cleaned out the tank, I found 2 broken pieces of tubing.
Even without priming, the motor will start with full choke, but after starting and running in full chock, when I move to half choke, motor dies.

It sounds like you've got a tiny air leak somewhere in that line, or the primer bubble.

Or...

My understanding is that one of those little lines is the "choke side" and one is the "throttle side" for the carb. Both need to be in the gas, to avoid pulling in air.
