There is a tab on either side of the carburetor right where the primer bulb sits. You can depress both of these tabs with a screwdriver and pry out the plastic ring that holds the primer bulb in place. You can purchase a new primer bulb (with a new plastic tab) from a local mower shop or from a small engine repair shop. When you install the new primer bulb, put the rubber bulb in first then put the plastic ring on top and press it in until the tabs click on each side. It should work correctly after the tabs are clicked properly. You can take off the air filter and look into the carburetor to see if the unit is priming correctly. I hope this helps you out.

How does choke work on 20 horse briggs the throttle only has turtlespeed and rabbit no place marked choke

Many have auto chokes, which are set to close and open essentially with spring pressure. You can verify this by looking into the intake, ahead of the throttle plates. Other designs use a priming bulb to accomplish the same function.

Motor runs wide open when set @ slow speed

It could be that the governor spring has become disconnected or has broken on an end where it hooks onto the throttle linkage. If the spring is OK & throttle linkage is not binding it could mean the governor drive inside the engine has failed preventing the governor from operating correctly. You may need to take the engine to a mechanic to fix the problem.
