Default fuel priming

I have an earthquake 3.5 and i was wondering if there was a primer for priming the engine for start up. I blow through the exhaust tube, which works fine, but a primer would work better i think.

Just put your finger over the exhaust outlet and pull the starter a few times without the glow ignitor on. It'll push some fuel in the lines and into the carb, enough to get it started.

A couple of company's made primers to go on the tanks but they were dropped due to leakage and other issues. I believe they still make an in-line bulb you can put in to prime it though.
