ANSWER: The primer bulb, which is located in the fuel line between the gas tank and the engine, is used to fill the carburetor with fuel when the engine is started cold. The rubber bulb resembles an oblong ball. Inside the bulb are two valves that open and close.
There are different types of gasoline primer bulbs, all of which contain various types of valves inside. Sometimes these bulbs become so hard it`s difficult to squeeze them; sometimes even though you can squeeze them, they pump poorly, if at all.
Once the engine is running, the feed pump produces a suction that draws fuel through the bulb valves. Without the fuel coming in through the bulb, this feed pump cannot work properly. The use of the primer bulb is therefore crucial.

Need to replace fuel lines….does the prime bulb connected to return fuel line or the supply fuel line
ANSWER : Hi stglass900…

Normally the big line will be the line the fuel filter is connected to inside of the tank, and is connected to the primer bulb.
The smaller of the two lines is the return line to the fuel tank from the carburetor after it is pumped thru the carburetor by the primer bulb.

I have a Craftsman Gold 6.0 mulching mower with a B&S engine on it that has been idle for about 10 years. It was only lightly used before that and I ran the gas tank dry before putting it away. Today I put gas in the tank pressed the primer bulb 3X and pulled the cord a few times without it starting. I noticed gas dribbling out of the little hole in the center of the primer bulb. It continuously drips and the gas is puddling on the top deck of the mower. Is this likely a problem with the primer bulb or something else? Thanks.
ANSWER : Sounds like the primer bulb dry rotted from sitting &/or the float is stuck in carb. If gas is indeed leaking from bulb. It will need to be replaced. While it is apart, clean carb inside & out with spray carb cleaner.
