Did this video help you?

M Gomez: Worked like a champ. put another gasket. Pushed and saw it squirt gas. Started right up. Will start adding new one to old gasket before using two new ones.

metalace24: I recently got one that does not have a primer bulb is that common that briggs and stratton did?

gtiterry: you just saved me a ton of time!

sloth mastapoptart: I filled mine with too much oils I changed it and it's still freaked up any tips? 

Steve Lambrecht: I love to use YouTube!!!  This particular one "hit the nail (er--gasket that is) on the head"!!!  My primer hasn't worked for two seasons now and I was advised by a small engine repair person to keep a spray bottle of gasoline handy and squirt it directly into the carburetor. This worked fine but it was a pain to unscrew the air filter compartment every time for access. Based on this great video, I purchased the gasket and doubled-up with the existing one. Works like a charm. Fantastic!!!!!

Craig Dow: Thank you so much! I cleaned the carb, replaced all gaskets and primer bulb and it still wouldn't prime. Tried your double gasket fix and it worked perfectly! Thanks again for sharing your expertise. 

John Schmahl: Putting in the second gasket worked like a charm. Owner of repair shop where I bought the gasket warned me not to tighten the bolts to the carb too much because the primer base would be warped which, sadly, I had already done. Cranking down on the bolts to get a good seal is a recipe for trouble.

grasscutter88: Will this cause it to not want to run either? My primer just pushes air and it starts and runs for 3 seconds and shuts off. I'm pretty sure it's not the carb cause I took it apart and cleaned it and ran a wire thru all the passages.

Mr Guillermo Costecho: Thanks worked like a charm

Char Dunstan: hi i have 3.5 hp briggs stratton pump primer type that wont prime ie squirt fuel can you help please 

luke b: I have same engine quantum 50 briggs stratton , can't start it pops out carb , I did remove head and notice when piston at tdc I could spin the valve easy with finger ?? My question is would this make not start and kickback
Thanks , oh and I tyred starting it with the blade removed if that make difference 

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.

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?

Brandon Medice: Can you start without primer?? 

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?

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

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.

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.

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

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.
