New primer bulb but engine won't prime


remove and clean the carby. clean out the main jet. ensure that there is nothing stopping the primer circuit from working. There are two valves under the primer bulb and a spring. when you push in the bulb fuel is squirted into the manifold When you take your finger off the bulb the spring pushes it out and new fuel is drawn past a valve to fill under the bulb. Pushing in again closes that valve and opens a second valve which allows the fuel into the manifold again

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.

Can you run your lawn boy mowers without the primer button being used?


Yes you can. The only reason small engines have the primer button/bulb is to get gas to the carburator to make it easier to start it. If your mower starts OK without using the primer bulb you will not harm the mower.

I have a Craftsman Gold 6.0 mulching mower with a B&S engine on it that has been idle for about 10 years. It was only lightly used before that and I ran the gas tank dry before putting it away. Today...


Sounds like the primer bulb dry rotted from sitting &/or the float is stuck in carb. If gas is indeed leaking from bulb. It will need to be replaced. While it is apart, clean carb inside & out with spray carb cleaner.
