    On the way in today the engine cut off and sounded like it was out of gas. I knew this was not possible so I checked the primer bulb. When I pumped it the engine would start and run for a while and this happened several times. Then I just kept pumping it all the way to the ramp and we able to run at low rpm's. Does this sound like a primer bulb replacement or something a little more serious?

    Could be an air leak or a fuel pump going bad.
    Sounds like you get to play detective.
