Lawn mower starting issue
 
I have a craftsman push mower with a briggs engine. The only way I can start the mower is if I prime a few times then I have to tilt the mower about half way on it's side then if I pull it will start in one or two pulls. If I do not tilt with I can pull and pull and it will never start. Any ideas on what I can check to try and fix this issue so I can start normally. I have even tried priming a few extra times and that does not help.

Off hand i would say the primer is not working. To check, remove the air filter, press the primer. You should see gas shooting into carburetor

Very common for the primmer bulb to get a crack in it, most are easy to replace by just removing 4, small screws.
