I have a 3.75 Briggs, been running about 9 years now with no problem, other than "hard to start" early in life. I too stuck with the recommended "not more than 3 pumps" on the primer and it was a work out. I quickly learned to give it 5-6 pumps, and now it's more often than not a one pull proposition, even after sitting for the off season (about one month here).
