Whether you're talking about the primer bulb or gas filter you will have to get with your local outdoor power equipment specialist to order the proper part for your particular mower and engine size.

6 years ago my brother bought 4 new tires from WalMart in Streetsboro, Ohio. A week ago the front left tire seemed low so I went to a Marathon station & the person in charge filled the tire but saidthis...

Sorry but even if you buy a tire and the car sits a long time in the sun that tire will dry rot. A lot of people do not know this and this is why you see camping trailers with covers over their tires in the summer because of the damage sun and weather can do.

My Craftsman 17cc gas weed trimmer wouldn't start.

Hi There, Check the primer bulb for tare or pin holes. Replace it. Check and clean carb jet it maybe plugged with debree. Also check for spark which you didn't say. Replace with correct plug.
Note; Do not use strong cleaners on rubber seals (O rings and gaskets) They dry up and crack.
If needed use a dabble of grease on seals

I need to find someone who can tell me on how to replace a primer bulb on a Robi Till/caltavitor, the one that on it is dry rotted. Can someone please help me? Thank you

If you take a small screwdriver and go between the primer bulb and where it sits you will see a metal ring that holds it in, use the screwdriver to take it out. It sometimes takes a bit ou patience. Before you do any of that look around the outside that housing and look for small tabs that you push on to remove the primer bulb. New ones just snap back in. I think if you take a closer look you will see what I mean. Hope this helps. Best regards and good luck.

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.

You didn't list a make or model however most of those are held in place with either two tabs or small screws and have one or two lines to them, most good hardware stores carry them such as ACE and can match it up to what you have.

Your primer bulb has a small hole in it, due to dry rot, you can take the bulb off and replace it with a new one very easy to replace, 4 screws, it is like a gasket.
