Troybilt Snowblowr with Tecumseh Engine Model HSK60

After starting this snowblower, and using it for around 5 minutes or so, gas starts coming out of the Black Rubber Primer Bulb hole. Never seen this before. Anyone have any ideas.

The warmer or harder the engine works blowing snow, the more gas comes out. After 30 minutes of snow removal, it literally squirts a stream out the hole.

thanks greg

Simple check, remove the bowl on the bottom of the carburetor, fuel should run out, lift the float, the fuel should 100% stop flowing.
It's also very common to get a hole that primer bulb.
Main cause of fuel issues is using ethanol fuel.
Find some place that sells nonethanol fuel or at least add an additive to counter act the effects of it.
Any auto store, Wal-Mart, power equipment company sells it.
A regular fuel stabilizer does not qualify.
