    You could pull the air silencer off to see if any carb is flooding. It's OK to run it on a hose or at an idle with the box off, just don't run it under a load with the box off.

I can't get it to start. Don't think the gas is moving when I pump it to start it. When I push on the bulb, it doesn't appear to pick up fuel.

Is the primer bulb filling with fuel.? If not then you either have a hole in the primer bulb or a hole in the fuel line, you mat also have a blocked primer bulb base.

Toro model number 200065 won't start. New gas, new spark plug, cleaned air filter. Doesn't feel like fuel is in the primer bulb when I prime it.

some toro primer bulbs don't fill up with fuel but blow air into a chamber in the carb that has fuel in it so when you press the bulb, the air sprays fuel into the carb ( just a little) So since it won't start, the bulb probably has a very small crack in it. replace it and then try it.

Eager ****** leaf blower ,no fuel in pick-up line

It works like this. Just follow each line to find the incorrect connection.

  • The hose in the tank with the filter on the free end connects directly to the carburetor input connection.
  • If the saw is equipped with a primer bulb, the output line from the carburetor connects to the suction side of the primer (once the bulb is collapsed it draws fuel from the tank through the carburetor to refill as it inflates).
  • The pressure side of the primer returns displaced fuel to the tank as it is depressed.
Take lots of notes and a few digital photographs to help with reassembly. HTH

The bulb primer is not sucking gas into it's chamber in order to prime start the blower

If you are not getting any fuel it should be either the filter plugged or the primer bulb leaking air. It could also be the fuel line. Give all of them a good look. ...Lee

Lost Manual need for repairs

What does your carburetor look like? Does it have a primer bulb? If so, look in the fuel tank and find the uptake filter, it's a cylindrical looking object connected to a fuel line inside the tank. Trace that line (an easy way I did this was to blow into the fuel lines myself and watch the cylinder, the line that makes it bubble out gas when blowing is the supply line) BE CAREFUL if you do this, you do not want to inadvertantly swallow gas!
Anyways, the line connected to the cylinder is the intake, the other is a return line and needs to be connected to the primer bulb port...from there it's gravy! Hope that helps you!

New model ut08580 backpack will not start

check the fuek lines for hole and leaks, check the fuel filter and clean if necessary. remove the carbuerator and inspect the gasket; it should be soft and flexible, if it seems hard or brittle replace it. clean the carb with carb cleaner sray (available at any local auto parts store) and compressed air. make sure you get inside the small fuel rail holes. check the primer bulb for pin holes and seating/sealed properly. if that doesn't work have the carb repaired at a service center or replaced.
