Tecumseh Snow King engines use a carb with a fitting for the vacuum line from the primer, however their engines used in tractors have no provisions for a primer.
You could do what Briggs did with their older snowthrower engines.... use a pump primer that feeds fuel directly into the intake near the head.

Just curious...why do you need to prime it?
