Primer Bulb Cracks/Turns Gummy

What would cause the primer bulb to crack/turn gummy?

Typically, the primer bulb begins to deteriorate once the fuel becomes stale. Ensure that only clean, fresh fuel is used in the engine, and that it is treated with a fuel stabilizer such as Briggs & Stratton Advanced Formula Fuel Treatment & Stabilizer.

For your convenience, this stabilizer as well as other Briggs & Stratton Do-It-Yourself parts and products may be ordered through the Maintenance Parts section of our website.

A good source for engine specifications and technical servicing information would be a Briggs & Stratton Repair Manual. The correct Repair Manual for your model engine is often listed in your engine's Illustrated Parts List.

Repair Manuals are available for purchase through our websites Learning Resources section or locally from a Briggs & Stratton Authorized Dealer.
