Hi... I have a Poulan PRO Quantum xnp 6.75. Garage kept, unused approximately 2 yrs. Added fuel, primed & mower started but then shut down immediately. Then fuel began leaking from the primer button. I'm a single mom & CANNOT afford to have anyone fix this. However I am attempting to repair myself. PLEASE.... If you have any suggestions &/or solutions I would LOVE to know.

Where is the primer ball


It may not have a primer ball. If it does, it would be attached to the carberator. If it starts, but won't stay running, that could mean your carberator needs to be cleaned/serviced.

Your carbs main jet is blocked. Using the primer supplements the fuel input and keeps the engine from becoming fuel starved.

You need to remove the main jet and run a strand of fine wire through the jet to clear it.

I was given a 31cc craftsmen grass trimmer that starts but won't stay running.When I took it apart it has 2 lines coming from the gas tank.One goes to a primer bulb then the carb and the other line has...


The basics of the fuel line on these and many 2 cycle engines is this, one line from the tank goes to the primer bulb and the other from the tank is the return line from the carburetor. There should be another from the primer to the carb. The primer pushes fuel into the carb and any excess flows through the carb and back into the tank.

I hope this helps.
