    Carburetor leaking gas into the filter when prime bulb is pushed to start up. Blockage? It will start up and run for a little bit then die. Hard to start after that. Time for a new carb or kit?

    The float might be sticking. I'd give the carb a good cleaning and see if the leak continues.

    Carb part # is 308028004 for around $22. I couldn't find a carb kit. Might try cleaning the carb, this can be hit or miss.
    Also a good idea to replace fuel filter and fuel lines if you haven't already.
