Primer not priming

I have a Sears lawnmower that the primer does not work on. I bought a new primer bulb and o-rings for the main nozzle. When I installed them, I cleaned out the holes on the bowl nut. Still nothing. My friend said to be sure the outside air cleaner flange bolt was in and tight. Still no pressure. Help!!! R.C.

Did you replace the bowl gasket? If not, it may be losing the prime pressure there.
