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.

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.

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?? 

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.

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?

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

JOSHUA ROUSSELOW: Hi Chad, could you speak to what you like about the EE quilt? I have been unable to decide between EE and Katabatic. I am going with down, and the EE is slightly cheaper. I really like the clip system of the Katabatic though. Your insight is really appreciated, thanks!
