"pumping the primer doesnt do anything"

If pumping the primer bulb while your running at WOT doesn't change anything then I would say it is a low fuel level in the carbs bowl. That be a float out of adjustment or dirty inlet valve(needle and seat). I'll go on to say that it(pumping the primer bulb while your running at WOT) could have eliminated a bad fuel pump and fuel lines.

If your pumping the primer bulb after it stalls and it won't start unless you choke it then you'll need a carb cleaning.

Either way the carb needs to be cleaned.
