Question about Husqvarna 160 CC Honda OHC Engine 21 in

2 Answers

Carb will not shoot gas in engine w/primer.

I'm an 8th grade science teacher and also teach a small engine class. I've compiled 42 Briggs vertical shaft 3.5hp-3.75hp engines. 20 are dedicated troubleshooting engines. I think I know my way around this engine, but one problem stumps me. I have approximately 8 carb/tank combos which I have completely disassembled (diaphragm, fuel pickup tube, primer, check valve rubber, ball, spring, main jet) except for the steel balls which look like orifice plugs and not to be removed. When the tank is filled w/gas, the primer pushed, no gas come through. I've had engines do this (not prime) and I poured some gas straight into the carb, started the engine, then the primer would work. Seems there should be a better fix. Would really appreciate the info as I'm on a budget. Thank you. Carlton Ochner Stockton Middle School

oval or round form
At the diafragm part,under it, there is a technological cover(made of alluminium).Under it there are some orifficies,make conection with "Venturi"wall from the carb(three orifficies I think).Some way remove that cover and clean the small plugged holes.You need to change it with a new one.Please let me know how the things are going on.

Will watching this series earn me a B.Sc? How about at least a GED?

No. Watching this series will not earn you any qualification. Freshman science teachers *might* present this series in class and offer participation marks which will contribute to your final grade in that class only. This series is designed to appeal to as broad an audience as possible without employing nudity. If you already possess a degree of any kind related to the content of this series, you may of course allow yourself a little smugness, but try to keep in mind 12 year olds are also watching, and this series is as much for them as for you. It's the good bits out of the primers. So while you may very well know more than the show is presenting, you're essentially bragging that you're more knowledgeable than a 7th grader.

Carb isn't getting gas, primer fills the bowl. If I put gas into plug hole it start and runs until it burns up gas I put in. Replaced primer hose. This should be a simple fix,basic motor..... please help...

Change your filter. if that doesn't change it there are rebuild kits most small engines, hopefully yours is a Briggs motor those are the easiest to rebuild. if it's a Tecumseh you may have a little fun on your hands.

Work hard.
