You need a "wet" primer bulb for the Jacobsen / Homelite snowblowers. A wet primer actually pumps gas - not air - a primer bulb with a hole in it was designed to pump air.

If you need a "wet" primer bulb email me and I will tell you where to get one for around $10 - basscatt at hotmail dot com

The little pump for gas does not wok


The primer does not necessarily need to work for the unit to run. It does have a choke to aid cold starts. However it is a good indication of something wrong in the fuel system. A primer bulb that does not return to shape or does so slowly indicates a clogged screen in the carb. Check the fuel filter and fuel lines. Replace the fuel lines if they are stiff or discolored, rebuild the carb and replace primer bulb.

Snapper snowblower


The primer bulb is bad. This is letting air into the fuel system, keeping the unit from making maximum power. Replace the primer bulb.

Snowblower carburetor primer not pushing any fuel


Did you replace the fuel lines as well?; the rule of thumb is, when changing out the fuel lines- you should replace the primer bulb since they are a barometer of each others condition and wear.

If you did not remove the primer bulb from the carburetor when you were cleaning the component parts (and predicated that the primer bulb is mounted on the carburetor, as opposed to being mounted remotely from it)- the solvents used to clean the carburetor could have broken down the plastic or rubber material that makes up the primer bulb- hence suction leaks or complete failure.

If you did remove the bulb assembly, make sure you snugged everything up and there's a tight seal. I would still replace it anyway- they're inexpensive.

BTW, you mentioned you are using "fresh high grade fuel"- are you using premium grade gas? If so, save your money and use an 87 regular octane gas.

What you should be concerned with is- the use of ethanol. In many mid-western states, gasoline is blended with 10-15% ethanol- which can absorb water from the atmosphere and cause corrosion in the fuel system.

The money you save from buying regular unleaded could be used to buy a fuel stabilizer, which I highly recommend you use. Gas is only good for about 30 days and then the volatile compounds in it begin to evaporate- leaving brown gummy deposits that will eventually harden like varnish- which can plug up the fuel lines and carburetor.

Please let me know how you make out. Best wishes on your project.

Carburetor change


Primer bulbs pull fuel from the carb, into the bulb and dumps it back to the tank, if you have re connected the hoses to the primer the wrong way around it will try to force fuel into the carb and make it flood.
