SOURCE: honda VF 750 1983 wont start


Initially, pls determine if there is sufficient vacuum on each cylinder. Remove air cleaner, housing and expose the carbs. Crank the engine while trying to cover the carb opening with the palm of your hand. If there is vacuum, then your palm would be wet with fuel. If there is little or none at all, then there is a leak between the carbs and the intake manifold.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Do yourself a favor > > purchase a factory service manual. I am not being flip when I say this. It sounds like someone has been into the engine and done who knows what. Ignition timing is simple enough but what if the prior owner messed with the overhead cam chain? OHV timing could be way off. Are the carburetors in sync and balanced? The manual should walk you through the service proceedures and settings. The manual costs a lot less than the repair shop but if you don't have the proper tools and knowledge of engine repair this engine is not one to just tinker with.

SOURCE: hot start lever siezed in plunger of crf 250 x carburettor

have had the same problem many times. spray carb cleaner into hole where the brass plunger is located give it a little time to let the cleaner work. put some force on the cable it may come out if not remove the cable at the other end so you can remove carb to work on it

SOURCE: Cant fit oil cap back on properly

Those are tricky but all it takes is to push the cap down and screww it in, then firmly grasp the cap and turn it till it lines up flush to where its supposed to sit.

I have a colemon 4600 generater only fires if put gas in the cab ureter then it starts but won't keep running any ideas

Likely that this unit sat for a while and developed a bunch of gunk/gum in the carb. Sometimes it can help if you do the following:
Find the idle mixture screw. This is the one on the side of the carb with a spring around it. Carefully not how many turns and Turn it clockwise until it stops. Make a note of this, then counterclockwise turn it until it comes out. Spray a generous amount of Carb cleaner into the hole. wait 10 minutes and repeat.. Put the screw all the way back in, then back it out exactly the number of turns you noted.
Try the engine, if it's still not right, you'll have to rebuild the carb.

I have a Honda EU 20i generator which has been standing for a while. Won't start. Have changed spark plug. Feel there may be stale fuel in carbie. How do I drain the carburettor please?

At the bottom of carb is the sediment bowl . you'll notice a small bolt or screw sticking out at a right angle, (if there's a spring on the screw don't mess with it!) Instead, look at the end of the spring closest to the carb. There should be what looks like a nut, that's the drain plug, (its going to be 10mm, so use the proper wrench ) turn counterclockwise to remove. When replacing the drain plug, do not overtighten! This will drain the bowl but there are also several tiny ports inside the carb that you shouldn't mess with so if it still won't start, take it to a qualified mechanic for repair. Its a Honda, so you know it wasn't cheap!

My bike was running fine and all of the sudden it just started running like heck and wont stay running seems like fuel but put all new gas cleaned out carb bowl and still running very erratic its a 2005...

I've seen the petcock do something like that. In 1996, Harley went to a vacuum operated petcick. They are a constant source fo problems. If your bike has coughed back through the carb recently, there is the possiblity that the diaphragm has been disturbed in the petcock and it is sucking air. If you think this might be the problem, you'll have to drain the tank by loosening the large 24mm nut on the petcock. Catch the gasoline with a large funnel and an empty gas can. Once drained, remove the petcock by disconnecting the large fuel line and the small vacuum line. On the backside of the petcock there is a square plate held on by four small screws. Remove the screws and carefull disassemble the petcock. There is a small spring, a needle, and the diaphragm. Remove the diaphragm and hold it up to a light. Gently stretch the diaphragm and look for holes. If you don't find any holes, reassemble the petcock and reinstall it. Check the vacuum line that runs back to the carb. It gets it's vacuum from a fitting on the backside of the carb and runs to both the VOES switch beneath the tanks and the petcock. Check to make sure that the hose has not come loose anywhere.

Good Luck

Mountin carbs back on bike need diagram 2 see how it goes on 79 honda goldwing 1000

Not sure if this is what you want.
If the carb rack is fully built up:
1) remove the air cutoff valve from behind the #1 carb. Be careful not to loose the two O rings.
2) remove the CV caps (and springs) from the two right hand carbs
3) the rack will now slide in from the left side. Re-fit the caps and the cut off valve once it's roughly in place and it's easier to attach the throttle cable at this point too.
4) Carefully fit the large O rings between the heads and the intake trumpets: It's very easy to have them fall down into the cylinder head ports!! Use some Vaseline on them if necessary to stick them in place (NOT GREASE!)
5) attach the choke cable and the fuel line to the fuel pump.
6) go over everything and check it. Make sure that the bands on the rubber inlet boots are tight.

I have a jammed Honda 600 Transalp centre stand. Can anyone help ?

I have just fitted a main stand to my Transalp 650 , if by jammed you mean rusted i think the only way would to remove it ! if thats the case you would have to remove the springs take out the split pin and tap the main bar out , grease well and fit back using two screewdrivers , use a larg phillips and a small flat screwdriver, lever the large spring down to the spring holder with the phillips and then then flip it onto the spring holder using the small flat screwdriver, then i used some strong cord to pull the small spring down onto the same spring hook ( holder)

My troy-Bilt 5550 watt generator will not start

First drain the fuel bowl. Any old fuel in there will keep it from starting. Fuel stabilizer is not what it's it cracked up to be. I've worked for 6yrs at a rental yard and had no luck with any fuel stabilizer, the fuel still went bad. If after you drain the fuel bowl it still will not start, you will need to clean the carb. Remove the carb and spray carb cleaner through all the accessible passages. If this does not do it, you will need to replace the carb. For long term storage I highly recommend draining all the fuel and filling just the carb with fuel stabilizer to keep gaskets moist. Then drain the carb when you take it out of storage.

Valve spring broke

Not sure but I think someone told me it is a knock off of the Honda? If so maybe try comparing? Ck size, Spring tension & etc?
I know not much help but that's where I'd start. Been told by a local small eng shop there aren't internal parts available for the Sumec engines.
