Did this video help you?

Milosz Ostrow: Can't understand a word that was said -- just wind noise. Cover the microphone with piece of open-cell foam, or at least some fuzzy fabric if you're going to record in a windy location.

Brandon Medice: Can you start without primer?? 

Bruce Arnold: I done this step on the briggs I have and still came up with nothing, I tightened the bolts easy at first then maxed out the tightness fearing I would strip the base..I also just for kicks after this put silicone at the base of the bulb and let it dry.. Anyway still back to square one I will try a different air filter base now just to help my curiosity on maybe its in the carb..But I can spray carb cleaner in that little hole on carb and sure enough it comes up the tube in venturi so..Any other ideas? Let me know! Thanks!

Josh Davis: Pretty smart, I can't believe I never thought of that. I subscribed to your page, thanks for the tip.

welostourdemocracy: Thanks a million man! I worked on getting my mower to prime yesterday and today then came in to find some information on it since I could not get it to prime even after replacing the gasket. I knew it was leaking air behind the gasket when priming by spraying wd40 around the gasket area and pumping the bulb but didn't think to simply put in a second gasket until I ran across your video. Knowing me I would have gotten into making a metal plate or something which would have taken a lot of time. Instead, I put in a second gasket which is much simpler and it worked.......thanks again.

Luis Jr Magaña: when I prime it is not stiff like fuel passing more like air, this is a brand new mower from briggs. Its so hard to start the mower matter fact have not gotten it to start yet, could this be the issue?

Old Sarge: thanks good vid and the link to buy the part cool

Edward Wilson: My new briggs engine on Murray mower will not start unless I take the air cleaner off and manually choke the carb (I turn the air cleaner over on it for temp choke and it starts right up). My old one was the same way and I was hoping the new one would start after priming like it should. Ideas?

wcjcnc: Hey, love all your vids. I was wondering if you could help me. I have a mower like the one in this vid. It has a OHV engine. I've done EVERYTHING I can think of to fix this problem but it's still doing it. Here's what it's doing. I push the primer bulb a few times. Pull the rope. Then it sputters for 5 or 6 seconds before it takes off and runs like it should. What would cause a mower to sputter really slowly for 5 or 6 seconds before it runs right? Thanks for ANY help at all.

oldvolkz: i replaced my gasket but it still wont prime?

ncrdisabled Submarine vet: I have a problem that I need yor help I have a 1972 ariens tiller 5hp that had a weak spark . I am a disabled vet so its a little had to understand some things . I tested the spark very week . I opened it up expecting points but the was the magnatron with some kind of conversion board to replace the points I do not know what to do at this point. I can not find the electronic board any where. What do you think?

aecom1: I have a Poulan Pro 625 series briggs and stratton walk-mower. The problem that i have is that ,it won't start at all. I can see...when I open the gas cap and prime ...the bubbles coming up in the gas as i prime. I can also see ,bubbles coming up when the air filter is removed and I'm priming ...from the back of the base-air plate connected to the carburetor.On the base-air plate it has a groove coming from the primer,and the gasket is old. Could this cause a no start?

nick l: Is it possible to bypass the primer bulb.

JEREMY FOUNTAIN: Only way fuel can enter the crankcase on that engine is due to bad needle and seat inside the carburetor or the fuel pump diaphragm is bad causing fuel to be sucked into the crankcase via the pulse hose. the only other way would be sabotage

JEREMY FOUNTAIN: Needle and seat in the Carb is jacked up

Razorron90: Lol. I just bought a Briggs 625 and it would prime at first and crank and run then go dead after about 15 seconds and it did this about 3 times. So my first thought was it wasn't getting enough fuel to the engine. So I checked all the gas lines and cleaned the carb. But before I did all that the primer won't put out any gas so I resorted to google and this popped up. Thanks for the vid. I knew it had to be something simple.

Grinder Monkey: I got a good one for you. Briggs 8 hp log splitter with extensive overhaul to pull starter, carb rebuild, replaced fuel pump, HOWEVER every time I fill the fuel tank, the engine will start but suddenly fuel and oil shoot out of the crankcase vent that attaches to the air cleaner assembly. The fresh oil is completely diluted with fuel and I can't figure out how this could occur. Float and feeder pin at venturi is clear but no fuel seems to be reaching the float bowl. Would appreciate help.

ncrdisabled Submarine vet: these are the numbers 100292 0154-02 74050807 any help you can be will help

Grinder Monkey: Your last word was the case for me. The fuel pump was incorrectly hooked up to the fuel in, fuel out and vacuum lines causing the fuel to exit through the breather tube. Replaced breather and fuel pump. Additionally the uptake tube that feeds the venturi was totally clogged preventing proper fuel flow through the float bowl at all. How it ran in its previous condition is a mystery. Thanks for the help.

belue7: definately got me scratching my head. lol

JEREMY FOUNTAIN: i would do away with the board and install a new electronic ignition coil part number 397358

rtzapper: great idea i never thought to double up the gaskets

grease82monkey: Nice

belue7: No i checked it also got a clean view through. Bulb was ordered from B&S and is correct primer bulb for that model also.

bondscalper: Dude you just saved me a pile of money !!!!! I bought the carb kit and replaced the gasket, but no prime !!! The i saw you video and put the old gasket ontop of the new one and BAMMM The carb primes like new. Thanks your the best

belue7: awesome tip, i have the exact issue with a mower i am working on! Thank you, exactly why i subscribed to your channel!!

JEREMY FOUNTAIN: need model type and code off your engine

nick l: how?? Please

Maddog61able: I have a Briggs 15.5 and gas is in the oil system what is the problem. Greg

grease82monkey: U need to put a Facebook link under description

JEREMY FOUNTAIN: Primer passage clogged in carb?

belue7: i did what you suggested and it still does not prime? I also switched the whole unit out and tried again and it wont prime. Any suggestions? i appreciate any other ideas you might have. New primer bulb also added.

JEREMY FOUNTAIN: yes

aniorange: A very good and simple tip. I will have to remember that.

FenderGibsonWashburn: This is exactly what's wrong with mine. Thank you

LUGGY GAMES: Could someone tell me if my Corsair CX600W PSU will be good enough for this card?
Halscamp: still better to have it on automatic changeover though and just keep monitoring for a red / empty signal every few days and refill when signalled to do so.. This way your first tank does not run out at midnight leaving you freezing by 3 a.m. and making your wife go out in the rain to open the second tank. Best to use it as it was designed for and do not forget to monitor for empty tank :)
