I have a honda o h c push lawnmower it starts easy but cuts out in about 30 secs


I have the GVC160 motor....same problems....just found this info (see link),...and it turned out that Honda used a NGK spark plug that was defective,....I couldn't believe that is all it was...after changing the carb (new),...adjusting valves....etc.. I just went down and bought a new spark plug.....and it runs great!!
----
BEFORE go thru all of the advice and look at most other Honda web info.....go and buy a brand new spark plug and start with that! It appears Honda used a NGK spark plug in the past that fails after some time....giving the syptoms of problems with the carb, sticky valve, etc. Do not try to clean and use the old spark plug!! Check this out....it was the answer I was looking for after hours of work, reading, and talking to Honda dealers - http://forum.doityourself.com/outdoor-power-equipment-small-engines/261743-honda-lawnmower-starting-then-cutting-out.html

Honda HRM215 lawnmower won't start. I am looking


Check for spark. Pull the plug and look at it. Make sure it isnt oil or fuel fouled.

Check the airpath and make sure the filter isnt blocked.

Check the fuel. Make sure you have clean gas in the float bowl. You can drain the carb without taking it off the mower. The bottom of the bowl should have a drain bolt in it. Remove the bolt completely and fuel free flow for a 30 seconds to make sure you chase off any water or dirt that may be in the bowl.

You may want to check compression. This mower is 19 years old and may be losing compression to the point where it wont draw enough fuel to run. Look for at least 100-110 PSI. Anything less you should consider adjusting the valve clearances to see if that helps. If not you probably need a new mower. Since repairs like this are very expensive.

Oh..and for specs and guidance: try here!

I can't start my honda lawnmower, checked the oil, put new gas use choke,it gives litle sound but not enough to start


Try a touch of starting fluid right into the carburator by taking the air filter off. If it then starts but wont run or stay running, the reservoir below the carb should be removed to clean at and the pinhole in the intake tube above the bowl nut. This is the most common problem with lawnmower start problems, the pinhole can be unplugged with one wire from a wire brush. Be careful with the gas, at least pinch off the gas hose with a vise grips while removing the carb bowl.. Never use a droplight around gasoline. most lawnmowers have no mixture adjustments, so it is a matter of cleaning the carb, tank, gas lines. Some oils in gas mix systems settle and clog after less than one season. Spark can be tested by sight, remove the plug and use a clip-on ground wire from spark plug body to metal on the engine with the plug wire connected.

GXV140 Carburetor removal


The carb just slides off of the posts. The gaskets are holding it on and may tear when you pull it off. The linkages must be disconnected to get it off as well. There are two bolts on the throttle plate that can be removed so the plate can move to make disconnecting the linkages easier. Some people remove the posts by threading two nuts on and tightening them against each other so that the inner one can be turned to unscrew the post. That didn't work for me as both nuts still turned together.
