Craftsman Gas Lawn Mower model #917-377552 6.0 Gold. Briggs and Stratton
I tried to fill it with gas and it all leaked out of the primer. Please tell me what is missing or wrong.
Also does anyone have a link to a free manuel for this?
Thanks, Katie

Unhappy

I had the same thing happen to me one time with a chain saw and what I had to do was to remove the bulb and reseat it. Now I'm not sure what kind of setup you have but mine just squeezed out and squeezed back in being careful to get the edge of the bulb into the slot on the plate. It could also be that yours is dried out and split. In that case a new one is in order.

The problem is that the carburator needle is not seating. That caused the gas to flow freely thru the carb and out the primer. Carb needs to be cleaned & a new needle & seat installed.

Here is a link to a parts manual for your lawn mower.
