If you are not getting any fuel it should be either the filter plugged or the primer bulb leaking air. It could also be the fuel line. Give all of them a good look. ...Lee

This almost sounds like a pinhole in the primer bulb but I need to know if you did the following. Did you remove the jet and venturi tube in the bottom of the carb. and clean the BRASS orifice hole and BRASS tube holes? If you did not then It will act just like the symptoms you described. Also check to see if your float bowl nut has holes in the side of it. IF it does then make sure the hole(s) are clean. Also make sure the fuel selector is all the way ON. Adittionally if the carb to block mating gasket is torn or not secure it will also perform as you stated.
Lastly the open the fuel air mixture screw on the side of the carb about 1/8th turn and see if the performance changes.
If the problem persists ....
This is dangerous due to the risk of fire but....
If you have any carb cleaner you can give it a quick shot in the nmating areas just after you start it before it gets hot to see if it speeds up. If it does, you have a vacuum leak. It is better to use an unlit propane torch if you have one.
Thanks for using FixYa,
P.s. If the problem does persist I will need your complete engine number to proceed in troubleshooting.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the info. I ordered a rebuild kit for the carburetor so i can replace the gaskets. And i ordered a new primer bulb. The engine is a Tecumseh LV195EA-362003B 6.5 hp engine on a Toro model 20007 recycler mower. Do I need to remove the welch plugs?"
