I have to admit I haven't worked on a 751 Bobcat with a Peugeot engine, but I've worked on piles of other Bobcat models and one thing that is common with Bobcat machines is whenever the primer bulb gets sucked flat while you're operating the machine is something is clogging the strainer on the end of the fuel pick up tube inside the fuel tank. You have to pull the pick up tube out of the tank and clear the strainer. And myself, if I pull that tube I replace it with a new one from Bobcat because another common Bobcat problem is deterioration of the pick up tube and it breaks off inside the tank. Let me know what you find.
