donyboy73: @mikebrady721 thanks for telling me
hardcoremofo: I am stuck with these 2 questions. 1. what happens if I prime the red bulb
more than 3 times like 8-10 times? 2. Is it normal if I over-prime, that I
see gas coming out of the carburetor bowl? Or that's a separate gasket
vtcycle: Thank you. I didn't realize it was that easy.
spiavsspia K: Another great vid. I have told (from the shops around here) that it is too
hard to replace them and just get a new cab.. However I see the truth of
the matter and it is what I have thought all the time thanks Donny!!!
akaBPhife: nice. . but think finding the parts will be the challenge now
dblixt1: I have to change the primer bulb in a 4.5 HP Tecumseh on a lawn boy. I
rebuilt and cleaned the carb and I still have the same symptoms, start and
stall and when I did manage to keep the engine running it would stall when
I installed the air cover. I did get the self propelled fixed though and
that is a plus. Making headway. :) Have a good day all of you and Dony...
lourox20: thank you!!!!

donyboy73: @joeysways i have a parts distributor, also mowers4u dot com is a good place
ClassicTVMan1981X: My 1984 Toro TNT100 engine (made by Tecumseh) seems to have a degrading
primer bulb (which may or may not be the catalyst for hard starting), and I
placed an order for a new one via Jack's Small Engines. I wonder if your
advice may work in the meantime?
David Quenzer: Very good video....exactly what I needed!!
jamie young: So I have changed my primer bulb but it will not prime way is causing
Robert Camp: donyboy 73. I have a tecumseh carb that is missing the primer bulb. Is
there a easy way to tell what primer bulb Is needed. Vector(black) or non
Vector (red)? Also could you explain the differences? Thanks for your help.
JustMeNoOther: Hi, just a doubt, I have a B&S lawn mower and when I push the primer but I
do not see the fuel jumping and of course do not start, I clean the carb
and all the holes are clean and without obstructing... but when I spray
'easy start liquid' into the carb entrance the mower starts perfect and I
see the fuel jumping and feeding the engine... what I'm doing wrong? Thnaks
PGXI: thanks dony, i never replaced one on tecumseh i was wondering how it was
fastened to the carb....good information
Bruce Wayne: Thanks for the video. You make it look easy. Now to make sure I order the
correct replacement piece.
TheCaddy84: Knowing this can save a LOT of mowers. Do you have a vid on the symptoms
and strange off beat Rhythm sound of one running with a cracked bulb?
mikebrady721: thank u very much my primer was cracked and mower keeped stalling watched
ur vid...bought the bulb 4 6.00 dollars and replaced like u said ........3
primes and 1 pull later and it works fine thank u again........
Moparman58: @ncrdisabled they have after market parts. but tecumseh isnt bankrupt they
just dont make engines anymore, they make compressors.
mikebrady721: thank u for saveing me a lot of money watched u vid....bought part 4 6.00
dollars took 10mins and 1 pull mower works fine......my primer was craced
and mower keep stalling.....u can do it ............:')
cultwho: thank you, for showing the part number, the generic one size fits all
doesn't work, you're saving a lot of people a lot a trouble (like me with
the part number because Sears doesn't list it) From everyone who get to
have fun instead of working on their mower I wish we could pay you some of
that fun backers. Thanks dude!
Twisted86: I have a 15 year old craftsman and it will randomly die, sometimes it will
work for 3-4 full mowings with no problems, other times I will start and go
20FT and have it rev up and down 3-5 times and die, other times I will get
through half my yard before it happens and it will die and take 10-15
minutes before I can start it again. Any idea what could possibly be
causing this issue? I do basic maintenance on it like oil/gas/air filter.
One time when it died it spit out gas from the primer.
foreverwood1963: Man the socket is a great idea
Rarrin9378: @donyboy73 Ok good because I already ordered one and wasn't sure lol,
Chris Woods: Replaced mine late last summer, primer bulb never worked. Found this video,
pulled the bulb off, realized I didn't remove the retaining ring from the
old bulb. Pulled the retaining ring out (and the rubber behind it), cleaned
out the area with a screwdriver, then re-installed the bulb with a 19MM
socket and rubber hammer. Wouldn't you know it, started after three primes.
Thanks much for this video.
donyboy73: thank you
LuckyNinjaDude777: does this work for all lawn mower models?
HORIZON8026: hey donyboy these typ of primers pump air not fuel or is that what the

spiavsspia K: Another great vid Don. I have been told by the shops down here that the
either cannot get the part and to junk the mower, so I usually find it some
where at a local shop that is a reputable dealer , but the parts on some
are getting harder and harder to find
drafted72: Thank you so much for this video, exactly what I needed.
devilwillcryle: Great video. Thank you very much

stopglobalswarming: Thanks. Mine is crusty but still working, If it's that easy, I'll just go
ahead and do it.
donyboy73: yes it's normal to see gas come out the carb if you over-prime it
