That would be a tecumseh engine. What's wrong with the primer? They seldom go bad. Many people mistakenly think the bulb is bad if gas is running out of it.


You can use a small thin screwdriver to work the retainer out. The new bulb should come with a new retainer ring, so don't worry about messing it up.

Ok, it could be the primer, but could also be the bowl gasket on the carb allowing the prime pressure to escape instead of push fuel into the carb throat.
