Question about Mantis Tiller
The problem is probably not the bulb itself, rather the fuel orifices within the carburetor are clogged with old gummy fuel. Sometimes, just draining the old fuel and adding fresh fuel (properly mixed) to the tank and let it sit a few days, will allow you to pump the fresh fuel through the carb. If this doesn't work, the carb will need to be removed and cleaned. I also strongly recommend to replace the gaskets and diaphragms within the carb when it is cleaned. As fuel ages, it gets thick and eventually turns to varnish. In the future, make sure that you run all of the fuel out of the equipment, or use a fuel stabilizer. Stabilizer will usually keep fuel good for 6 to 8 months instead of the 60 - 90 days without it.
