You can try pumping primer bulb 10-15 times instead of 3 or 4 that manual probably suggests. We have a craftsman 22 inch cut push mower with a 3.5 H.P. BRIGGS &STRATTON engine and if you don't prime it at least a dozen times it will not start. It is possible that you have a small hole in your primer bulb in which case it can't create suction to bring gas to carburator. If this is the problem you can purchase a new bulb and seal at most larger SEARS stores or service centers.I would guess that if you have manual for mower you can get part number and phone number to get new parts .Hope this helps. Thanks

Fuel leaks out of the primer bulb has a nipple with small hole. fuel coming out of the nipple hole. No breaks or tears in the bulb.


ethanol additive in gasoline causes deterioration of fuel system parts, especially primer bulbs. Needs to be replaced...relatively easy for mechanically minded or bring to dealer. Check Amazon for parts...they are cheaper than most dealerships.

Hope this helps....

I have a Briggs and Stratton/Bolens 20" lawn mower which needs a primer button. Where can I get that part(s)? Thanks


It looks like the number you are giving are from the mower deck, and would work great for anything but the engine. On a flat head engine above the spark plug on the tin air shroud there will be some more number and they go to the Briggs and stratton engine you have.On a overhead valve engine you should look on the valve cover. There will be model, serial , and spec numbers, all three would be great and would make it easy to look up the primer bulb and post a link to it for you.

If its identical it should work ,if not take the old one to a mower shop,to get correct one and make sure the choke is going right on when the cable is in choke position.

What is the magneto gap for a 6HP Briggs & Stratton 12H802 series engine?


Briggs lists it as .006 - .010 on this 6 HP L-head engine. The .010 width can easily be attained by using a standard sized business card as a feeler gauge (and it doesn't stick to the magnets in the flywheel). I double up the card, loosen the coil and let the magnets in the flywheel draw the pickup legs in until they press on the card, tighten up the retaining screws (threadlocker is optional) and your air gap is set.

Lawn mower won't start


to check for firing remove the spark plug insert it in the plug boot and pull the rope while watching to see if the plug sparks be carefull not to touch the plug electrode while pulling the rope or it will shock you. If you don't have a spark, try a different plug. If still no spark the coil could be bad.

How do you remove the primer bulb on a model 10a902 Briggs and Stratton mower engine?


Look at the outside of the plastic housing where the primer bulb is inserted, you will see an open area where there are 2 tabs, one on each side, using a small screwdriver, push these tabs inward to release them and slide the whole thing out of the hole including the primer bulb. The new primer bulb normally comes with a new mounting ring if you purchase it from a lawnmower dealer
