    This push is little over a year old.
    After priming the carb 3 times it starts fine then dies, If I continue to prime the carb by hand I can keep it running.
    I have dropped off the fuel bowl under the carb but had no effect.
    any suggestions ?

    Thanks

    Spray the carb and fuel tank out with carb cleaner. Then blow all the ports with compressed air on the carb. Blow the tank dry and fire it up after some clean fuel.
