The bulb repair kit can be purchased a home depot or lowes, or whatever is close to your home. These can be replaced fairly easy. It is usually prongs on the backside that hold the bulb in. After pressing these the bulb will come out of the housing and disconnect the tubing from the bulb. It a good idea to replace tubing when doing this, the tubing is rotted or dried out and eventually cracks. Keep in mind where the tubing goes. One will feed from the gas tank and the other will feed the carb.

How do i remove the primer bulb on my homelite mighty lite 26cc blower


The primer bulb should be attached directly to the carburetor. There will be a plate with 4 screws, once on each corner, which you will have to remove to get the primer bulb off of the carburetor. You can find replacement primer bulbs at PartsBuggy.com.

I have a handheld blower/vac: The primer bulb is new and will not pump fuel,not even fill the bulb. I checked the fuel lines to make sure they were correct.(homelite)


I was working on a neighbor's homelite chainsaw and I replaced the primer bulb, it was not intuitive, and I hooked up the lines backwards. Also if you are replacing the primer bulb, maybe you have old fuel lines that are deteriorating and need replaced. Did you check the in tank fuel filter? If it looks dark, it may be time to change it.

I hope this helps get you going again.

My Homelite Mighty Lite 26b Leaf blower has a punctured primer bulb. Homelite doesn't list the part number. Model number UT08520A Can you help? Thanks, Ed Mckinney,Tx


Homelite wants to sell you a new carburetor assembly. Your blower came equipped with a RuiXing brand carb. RuiXing does not offer any repair parts for their carbs, only replacement units.
Now for the good news....a Zama brand primer bulb fits perfectly on the RuiXing carbs. Check with your local small engine repair shop for a Zama primer bulb. The blower requires removal af the carb to get at both of the screws that hold on the bulb. It is not difficult, just one nut holds on the outer airbox cover...don't lose the little washers. Then one long stud and one short screw will take the carb off. Replace the primer bulb and reinstall everything the same way it came off.
Good luck!

PRIMER BULB WONT PRIME


I would recheck the carburetor to make sure you put the diaphragms next to the carburetor and not the gaskets.
Please if it is not priming you may have the fuel lines hooked up wrong. Also check the fuel cap to make sure the vent assembly is there. If the tank is not venting, the tank will get a vacuum in it not allowing fuel to flow.

Good Day.
