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!!!!

Pierre D: THX man appreciated
ncrdisabled Submarine vet: Great video I was told that Tecumseh was bankrupt and no longer made parts
or small engines. I have a older mower that can not get parts for and when
I went to NAPA and online stores have told me that info. Keep up the great
donyboy73: @th19940305 i stock a lot of them
donyboy73: @th19940305 it's my home garage converted into a shop
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
problem is hahaha. I thought the primed fuel or u could here it anyways
Jamie Wood: thank u very much!!!
donyboy73: @vtcycle you're welcome, make sure to subscribe
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
mogges: Dony i got a poulan k10 wat repair kit .and there some items in it i'm not
sure about.there is 1 silver cap looking thing in it then there a
washer.and then there is what look like a C washer and a extra pin of some
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
1972FordF150: Cool video dude ! now I know how to replace one of these kind of primer
s58318: Great video- just what I was looking for!!! Much appreciated!
donyboy73: @fedburin thanks, make sure to subscribe!
elcapitan216: thanks for the video !
donyboy73: if it has a tecumseh motor, yes
theapothem1: its almost the same model as yours in the video but I believe the bulb
might be the culprit because I already took apart the carb and cleaned it
and it has spark.
Kevinthomaswatson: I'm working on the same carb, changed the primer and cleaned the carb. Fuel
is getting to the bowl but the spark plug is dry after priming so it looks
like the primer may not be working. Any ideas? Thanks for the video!
donyboy73: @theapothem1 if it's a tecumseh u will not feel the fuel in the primer
