i bet the needle valve is  stuck.  try  tapping the  carb ;)

Wouldn't run on prime if the needle is stuck, if you don't mean priming by giving a shot on the air filter. Think the pump membrane has gone bad or you got the impulse channel clogged or leaking. Membranes often go simultaneously with the fuel lines.

By me saying prime. I was using my squirt bottle to spray mix straight through the carb through the  intake and into cylinder.  It would run till mix was used up. So bypassing carb really.

That pot licker is a runner,I'll testify to that fact .It just would not suck fuel yesterday .

My suspisions are stiff check valves .Now I've ran them dry,left fuel in them found really no difference .That damned ethanol just stiffens the innards up .

The last few carb kits I got it looked like the checks were made of a material more robust to the effects of ethanol .The earlier versions used what appeared to be buna N which is not as robust .BTW ,Stihl crankshaft seals are a tad different also than earlier versions .

I wish they would use that corn to fatten cattle and make whiskey instead of sticking the stuff in the gasoline tank .Might as well chit in one hand and wish in the other .Good grief ! >:(

Just as a side note on that carb let me add something .My 2100 Homelite  has a large fuel line and a large carb .If it sits for a long time ,which it does  I have to prime it .Either that or rollover 114 cc of saw engine until my arm about drops off .

It takes about 2 prime cycles to suck that line full of gas but like I said it's large .Now once full that line will hold gas for about three weeks to a month because the checks are working or at least were the last I used it .

That tid bit aside checks or no it's most likely re kit time .Chit happens !

I just had a thought occur to me that might be something or just a waste of time .

I've taken apart those old boat anchors that were ran on heavy oil mix,16 to 1 .They smoked like they were burning soft coal back then .However even after decades of sitting and the motor oil evaporated and left an oily residue those things had carb innards that were as supple as they likely were when they were new .

I just wonder if a person ran the things dry then fired it back up with oily gas  then drained the tank if the long term storage would be any better .

TIP: On the partner 500 and 5000 there is a little hole through flywheel and crankcase. Align both holes up and slide a  align wrench or other steel object same size as hole into crankcase.
Then you can remove clutch, flywheel nut etc without using rope  or stop through spark-plug hole.

I did some testing of 325 chain vs 3/8 chain on my stock 5000 plus. First the 7 tooth 325 chain. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W7YhtJ_8tqQ

325-7T=15.83 seconds
325-8T=14.50 seconds
3/8-7T=12.78 seconds
