Default Hard to prime blower.

Gas sometimes does not go into the primer bulb on my blower. This usually happens after running for a while. When I stop it the gas won't go into the bulb when I press it. After a long time it will again and starts fine then.

Why does this happen?

you may have a small pin hole in the bulb or in one of the lines that is not enough to cause a leak of gas but enough to allow air in.
