How do you replace a leaking primer?

I pressed the primer and it began leaking gas. I believe the rubber had aged and could not withstand the pressure.

Fix or repair gas leak.


no rino lining will not withstand gas. J B Weld has a product that will work but generally once a gas tank has corroded enough to leak you are better off changing the tank

Gas is leaking from the primer on my swisher walk behind trimmer. What would cause this?


i believe you have a cracked primer bulb or cracked fuel line. you should also check and see if the screws are loose that connect the primer bulb to the assembly.

Won stay running


Check carburetor & air filter. Clean off all dirt and clean air filter. check age of gas. Cannot be more than 30 days old. Make sure to use fresh gas w/synthetic 2-cycle oil @ 40:1 ratio (1 gal.) Gas to 3.2 oz. Oil). Do not use old or stale oil/gas mixture. Before putting in fresh fuel, press the primer several times. A small amount of gas might show up in the fuel tank. Remove fuel. With carburetor cleaner, spray carburetor. Put in small amount of fresh fuel. Just enough to cover the fuel filter. Then press primer with fuel cap off, and watch to see if fuel is flowing smoothly. If not or if plastic primer bubble does not come back to original shape after pressing, then you have to take carburetor apart and clean or get new carburetor.

Tecumseh 5 hp snowblower carburetor adjustment


Having to run the engine with choke on indicates that there is an air leak somewhere in the fuel delivery. Check the gas line for cracks, and if your model has a primer, the hose from the primer to the carb may be cracked.

Gas is leaking through carb


If you have a rubber push primer on your mower, you will need to change the rubber gasket for the primer or the feul will continue to run out

Under the primer bulb is a orange rubber check valve. Can you buy that without buying a complete rebuild kit?


The rubber check valve is part of what is called the primer base assembly. That is a part all unto itself and includes the check valve. Here is a carburetor break down with parts and diagrams.

Unsafe gas line repair?


It is ok, as long as the hose is for fuel, and the hose is designed to withstand the pressure,and everything is done tight without leaks.
