Yes, the hole is supposed to be there. When you push the bulb, your finger should cover the hole and when you release the bulb, take your finger off the hole. Your finger acts as a simple one-way valve that builds pressure in the primer system.

Web search "briggs & stratton 422707 parts".

Several sites have B&S. You'll need 6 more digits for engine type and code.

Once you have a part number, try eBay for $ savings.

The family number won't help you get information. You need model and code numbers. If you knew the model I can explain how to set it up. also what is this engine used on?

Many engines today either have no drain, or a drain that you cannot get to because of the way the engine is fitted, just buy a syringe to suck the oil out, there are plenty available made to do just this job.

If it is an older engine with standard flywheel ignition (contact breaker inside the flywheel) the coil will be grounded except when the contacts are open and even then a casual test with the average multimeter it will appear to be grounded as the coil resistance is very low; just a few ohms needing the low range of a digital multimeter to measure...

When those engines have been unused for a while it is almost certain the contact breaker and perhaps the condenser will need attention.

If it is a later engine fitted with an electronic ignition module, once the kill switch has been disconnected and the spark is still absent, it is almost certain to need a replacement module unless the flywheel has lost most of its magnetism.

You need to find the primer bulb and press it about 5 times to get petrol up and running.

Try keeping the trigger on the lance pulled while you try and start this lets the pressure out and should be easier to start.

Sounds like your battery is failing. It should have 13.2 to 13.5 volts, but your problem is Cold Cranking Amps, not enough of them. Run jump leads from your car and try it. Or, take the battery off and take it to an Interstate Store, they will put the battery on an electronic tester that will test the CONDITION of the battery and in particular what the CCA is compared with what it should be. I had my car battery tested and it should have been 550CCA, but it was 420, so I replaced it because it let me down twice. CCA is king when starting is concerned, NOT voltage.
