My prime bulb looses pressure and first start is hard. I have to remove fuel line from filter and cover with thumb prime re install then first start takes time.

Does the engine run fine after it starts? Most common problem with primer bulb losing prime is an air leak in the fuel line or primer bulb. Air leaks don't always leak fuel. If there is an air leak between the primer bulb and gas tank there is no pressure, only vacuum. If it is not a major leak it might not leak without pressure but it will allow air to enter the fuel line. If it is a very minor air leak it could allow air to replace the liquid in the fuel line over time, but so little air once it is primer again that the fuel pump can over come it with volume of fuel.

Primer bulbs do not stay firm, as they are when initially pumped up, after the engine is running. There are check valves in the primer bulb that hold pressure in the primer bulb and throughout the fuel line to the engine. Once the engine starts the fuel pump creates vacuum drawing fuel into the engine diminishing this pressure and releasing the check valves. At this point the primer bulb is just another segment of fuel hose allowing fuel to pass through it as the fuel pump demands. The primer bulb functions much better when the outlet side is higher than the inlet side. This position makes it easier for the check valves in the primer bulb to seat and release as needed. If the primer bulb is functioning properly and is positioned with the outlet side higher than the inlet it should not be necessary to cover the end of the fuel hose with your thumb to get it to prime.

If the engine is hard to start after being fully primed there could be a problem with the fuel system on the engine. Some engines are hard to prime once air has entered the system, especially fuel injected models.

Oil leak on snowthrower

If it leaked out through the carburator, you will need to take that engine apart and clean/ replace all the air filters

Gas leaking from carburetor bowl drain screw when pushing in primer. Push primer two times and couple drops of gas on floor. Any way to tighten spring screw on carburetor bowl?

Sounds like you need a gasket on that screw. Don't over tighten as you could mess up the threads. I think this is the screw that has the
fuel jet in it. If you take it out its good to clean out that jet as well to have a good running machine.

I have a Yard Machine snowthrower that starts then shuts down in a few seconds. I can keep it running if I push the primer button when it starts to die...any suggestions? I have: drained fuel and put in...

you need to remove the carb from the engine, tear down(don't worry they don't have many parts inside) and soak and then use carb cleaner or compressed air to blow out the ports insind the carb. this should solve your problem.

Priming bulb not working tecumpseh 10 hp snowthrower model unknown

turn the gas line valve to on, remove the gas fill cap, remove the gas line from the carb. gas should be flowing freely. if it is, put the line back on carb and try the primer again. if it is not flowing freely you are pluged at the tank.

Mtd snowthrower fuel line leak

Possibly cut a very short piece of the old fuel line off and put it back on the fitting with one of those small spring type hose clamps.
