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.

If the bulb needed to be replaced more than likely the fuel lines are in need of replacement. You may have damaged one as they be come brittle with age and can crack or break easily

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.

Craftsman tiller 5 hp a few years old. can get it to start for a minute or so than it dies. changed plug and cleaned filter what else could it be?

If there are any rubber or vinyl fuel line components it may be time to replace them. I'm experiencing a similar problem with a small "mantis" type tiller and the primer bulb is split. Searching for replacement parts when I came across this post. Hope this helps.

Craftsman edger won't start

Does it have a primer bulb? If so, make sure the bulb is not cracked. Also, make sure the fuel lines are not cracked and the fuel supply line reaches the bottom of the tank. Fuel lines, as silly as it sounds, degrade when exposed to gas for long periods of time. If they are cracked it will draw more air than fuel and not allow the engine to run. You can buy replacement fuel line/primer bulb kits for under $10 at practically any hardware store.
