B&G 6.5HP mower is leaking from Primer Buld

Hello All,
I am very new to this and am going nutts. I have a John Deere mower that has a 6.5 HP Briggs and Stratton engine. I winterized it this past year and yesterday when I put gas in it, it began peeing/leeking out of the little hole in the primer bulb. As a result, I replaced the primer bulb with another one but the problem persists. I have taken the carb out and have placed it (in one piece) into carb cleaner.
Does anyone have any ideas of how to fix it? I'm going nutts and haven't budgetted for a new mower.
Any help will be GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!

You've got the right idea,but going about it in the wrong way.You have to take the carburetor apart all the way (be sure to take all plastic and rubber parts out B 4 soaking it).

But re-reading your post,it is highly possiable that you've ruind the rubber fuel inlet seat already.
