My carb leaks a bit of fuel when I prime it beyond four pushes. I have heard that's normal. Is it really, and why?
Yup, that's normal. Don't prime more than the book says, maybe try one less and see what happens.

I don't stop priming until it leaks....
i don't really agree with that. on the old flat head 4 strokes ya something like that never hurts but i really don't think that would be good advice for any new snowblowers with the overhead valve engine. the carb sit pretty level with the intake. could possibly fill a cylinder with gas which is never good
