hi i have a similar issue with this lawn mower: 917.377390 sn: 052600m026078 engine 143.006700 lev120-361501a it will start and run for a moment or two. holding the prime bulb down will allow it to run for longer (not the best position to try to mow the lawn!) i understand the solution you give, but i'm curious about what is likely happening to cause this. thanks
