Question about Garden
The bowl on the bottom does it have a step in it. If it does make sure the bowl is positioned so that the float can drop down all the way.

try removing the muffler and scraping out any carbon build up in the exhaust mouth of the block. if that doesnt help you will probably need to replace the carb.

Was gasoline left in the tank during off season? Sometimes gas will break down and clog the jets in the carb. The priming bypasses the carb so when you put fuel in by pumping the bulb it runs, but dies becasue no additional fuel is coming through the carb after the primed fuel is burned off. Sounds like you need to clean the jets in the carb and in the future, use Stabil in gasoline to keep it from breaking down.

Remove the float bowl from the carburetor, clean it out and use a commercial spray carburetor cleaner to clean out the main jet in the center of the carburetor where the bowl nut screws in

Check the muffler and/or spark arrestor screen in the muffler outlet pipe and also the engine's exhaust port behind the muffler. These are prone to carbon-clogging and the engine cannot "BREATHE" enough to reach full throttle. If all-clear in the muffler, go back in the carb and locate the inlet screen directly opposite of the inlet needle. Carefully pull it out with a pick and hold it up to a light source. If you cannot see thru it, replace it. This is another, (less) common area of obstruction.
Hope this helps,

I am under the assumption the primer bulb is atop the carburetor. There are check valves under the bulb in the primer base assembly of these carbs. Sometimes, the valves stick and sometimes they go bad completely. There are very small and for all practical purposes unserviceable, however...you can try this...pull the fuel lines off of the carb and spray WD-40 into the brass inlet and outlet. Remove the primer bulb again and liberally spray some WD onto the top of the primer base assembly...this being done in hopes of freeing up a sticky check valve. If you have extra or old fuel lines, hook them to the carb...inject WD-40 and work the bulb to attempt to move the lubricant back and forth out of the carb. Sometimes this works, sometimes not..if valves are bad. There are replaceable parts and kits for the primer base available on the manufacturers websites. The primer bulb does not have to be completely full of fuel to allow the engine to run, but the base assembly can cause problems in fuel flow to and from the carb and even mimic a flooding condition. Don't use carb cleaner and dont soak the carb in any,. Try this and post back if needed.
