Hello wesandfran, yes, that is a very common machine and you may even find the part at places like Home Depot.
I hope this helps you,
Good luck my friend!

I have an airweight 38 does it hurt the gun to dry fire?

It won't HELP it, that's for sure. Go to a sporting goods store and purchase what's known as "Snap Caps" for your weapon's caliber. They're small plastic "ammo" that has a spring embedded where the primer/igniter would normally be located. When you dry-fire, the spring provides the proper resistance to the firing pin, preventing over-extension and premature wear/breakage of the pin. They're cheap, and since you have a wheel gun, you can load 'em once and shoot again and again and again.

Is the primer bulb replacable on 200 classic chainsaw.or do I have to buy a new gas cap.

Hi Shirley:
My apologies if I'm incorrect, but I've never seen a chainsaw that had the primer bulb connected to the gas cap.
I'm hoping you're asking two questions at the same time.
1) Primer bulbs are replaceable but it's extremely rare that it is necessary
2) Gas caps are replaceable but only needs to be done if they are broken.
If you reply as a comment on this post I'll be able to respond to you.

My briggs and stratton 158cc 500series push mower primer button melted from sun. how do i replace it?

There is a tab on either side of the carburetor right where the primer bulb sits. You can depress both of these tabs with a screwdriver and pry out the plastic ring that holds the primer bulb in place. You can purchase a new primer bulb (with a new plastic tab) from a local mower shop or from a small engine repair shop. When you install the new primer bulb, put the rubber bulb in first then put the plastic ring on top and press it in until the tabs click on each side. It should work correctly after the tabs are clicked properly. You can take off the air filter and look into the carburetor to see if the unit is priming correctly. I hope this helps you out.

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

Where is the oil filter located on the bmw 116i

right at the front in the middle below plastic housing. Has 1 large plastic cap on a metal lower casing, not metal bodied like old oil filters just has filter element. Also replace 'O' rings that should come with the new filter as the old will have squared off or become perished. I think you need a 27mm socket to undo the filer housing.

Needs carburator adjustment for poulan model # FL 26

Sure. (This will void your warranty and bypass smog requirements!) There is a red and a white limiter cap on the carburetor adjustment screws. Red= High speed / White = Low speed. Remove limiter caps. Turn both jets a 1/2 turn counter clockwise, Start, then fine tune. Use the low speed and idle screws to smooth out low to idle speed and the hi speed jet to tune the full throttle.

I need a fuel line and a primer fuel pump (plastic bubble) for my Ryobi 31cc trimmer plus. Any idea where I can get the parts?

You can order them directly through Ryobi and pay a small fortune or you can go to any small engine repair shop and purchase the fuel line by the foot. I believe your primer bulb can easily be replaced with what your local shop will have in stock. The parts from your local shop will probably out last the factory parts anyway.
