I'm trying to get this mower going for my son's new house. This was bought in the early 2000's for my mother in law who had had Breast cancer and was not supposed to pull on a lawn mower (has starter). She was in her early eighty's at the time and wanted to stay active. The mower was only used a few years before she stooped using it. The mower has set in her garage for about 7 years and the carb is gummed up. Here is what I have done, It would fire with starting fluid but not run. I removed the bowl nut, bowl float, float needle and cleaned all that up. Put it back together and it would crank and run with starting fluid and the air filter on. The priming bulb does not seem to do anything. The only way it will run with the air filter off is if I restrict the air flow with my finger. I have removed the carb and tried to blow out all the jets. There is a hole on the side of the main jet housing (bread tie) that I cannot get cleaner to come out of. What is the red tube going into the air filter for.
