Default Can't prime my engine

Well i have an OS.18 and for some reason i cannot prime the engine. Not even a drop of fuel will pump up through the fuel line and into the carb. Im no dummy either so please tell me whats going on.

I'm sure you've tried blowing into the pressure line on the tank in order to prime the fuel line? maybe the filter is clogged or.. the needle setting is all the way in, not allowing any fuel or pressure to escape into the carb.

You can also try putting your finger over the stinger in your exhaust pipe, while trying to start it. This actually forces fuel to the carburetor!
