Remove the brass bolt that holds the float bowl onto the bottom of the carburetor. This is the carb's main jet. After removal, clean the very small holes in the bottom and along the smooth part of the sides of it. The bolt can become clogged when gas evaporates or when no fuel filter is used. This will allow gas to flow uninhibited throught the carb and to the engine.

Your carbs main jet is blocked. Using the primer supplements the fuel input and keeps the engine from becoming fuel starved.

You need to remove the main jet and run a strand of fine wire through the jet to clear it.

Can't keep mower running without consistently pushing the primer.


It sounds like there is water in the gas. The only way to remedy this is to take the carb off of the gas tank and replace the diaphragm, there is a small reservoir between the tank and carb...clean with WD-40 to remove water
