I just started by troy bilt snow bower for first time this year and gasoline is leaking from primer button and two holes on the opposite side of block were the primer button. what do I need to do to correct this problem.

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you have fuel in the tank? If so, is the shut-off valve open and the fuel clean?

Yes I put fuel in the tank this morning , the tank was completely dry when I put this fuel.

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

It depends on how involved the work is

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

The model number of the engine? Carburetor likely has stuck needle valve and float. Are the primer hoses good, not deteriorated?
