I have a T-20 Shindaiwa trimmer that was running great. It started to lose power when I would lower it to the running position then it completely quit. I found the fuel pick-up tube in the tank was broken just below where it enters the tank. I replaced it thinking it would fix the problem, now it won't prime. The diaphragms in the carb appear OK but I'm not certain. I can't find any leaks in the fuel lines, also the priming button [clear plastic] doesn't seem to leak. Can you tell me what parts I need to order. Thanks in advance for your help.
