Unhappy Fuel Leak from Primer Bulb

I ran my Toro 7hp snowblower (w/ tecumseh engine) over the weekend. It started fine, stalled once, but restarted fine. However, once I was completed I noticed that fuel was leaking out of the primer bulb. Could this be a "fluke" thing or is is more likely a sign of a required repair. If it is a repair, what is most likely the problem and how do you go about fixing it? Thanks for your assistance.

Hello pulv01!

Sounds like your carb is leaking, caused by a bad/sticking float and/or a bad needle & seat. Replace all to eliminate the problem and future problems. Shouldn't cost more than $10.00 to do it.

Let us know how it goes, or if we can help further!

Don't forget to change the oil because with a problem like this the gas will run back through the engine to the crankcase.
