I suppose this is on the 4-stroke mini tiller. There is a circular retaining washer with "tangs" on it in the bulb housing area. Clean the area well and you will see it. It is black probably. Use a very small screwdriver and reach in and pry it out in a few different spots and it will pull free and so will the bulb. Insert the new bulb and the the retaining washer making sure the tangs on it are all nice and flat. Press it back into place with the same small screwdriver being very careful not to puncture or tear the new bulb.

Start mini tiller without primer bulb

Not sure if you can. It is much easier if you install the right primer bulb. Those units are made to have primers to be used I believe. if there is a place for a primer it needs one.

Why will the plastic primer area will not fill up?

One reason that the primer bulb will not will with fuel, besides having no fuel in the tank, can be that the two fuel lines have been reversed. If you pulled the fuel lines off for some reason then switch their positions and see if that makes a difference when you push the bulb. You should see fuel moving back into the fuel tank.

I own a 2 cycle mini tiller craftsman and I need a manual for it. I want to tune up tiller it's blowing smoke.

Manuals for many Craftsman tools are available here: . Lots of tillers are listed just by searching for Craftsman tiller. If you can find the model number (usually on a plaque on the housing of the tiller), you can narrow down the list greatly.

I hope this helps.
