A:

You'll need to drill out the rivets that hold the starter to the engine shroud. Then use the little bolts/nuts that came with the new starter to install it onto the engine shroud. If you cannot drill out the rivets then you can try using a hammer and chisel, but you have to be careful doing that as it's easy to bend up the engine shroud.

Q:

My Craftsman push mower, 2 years old, has gas coming out of red prime hole and the air filter is soaked with gas.

A:

Gasoline leaks out of the primer hole because the needle on the float inside the carburetor is not stopping the flow of gasoline into the float bowl. The bowl overfills with gasoline and the fuel goes up into the carburetor and probably into the oil as well. Check the oil before running the engine and if there is fuel in the oil, change the oil.

The problem is usually caused by debris from the fuel line between the fuel tank and the carburetor getting into the seat in the carburetor where the needle valve on the float assembly stops the flow of fuel into the carburetor.

You can probably repair the problem by removing the carburetor from the engine. Remove the fuel bowl on the bottom of the carburetor and clean the debris from the seat. Replace the fuel line from the fuel tank to the carburetor. The debris usually comes from the deteriorating fuel line.
