YOU CAN MAKE A SPARK TESTER BY TAKING A SCREW DRIVER AND PUTTING INTO THE WIRE AND BY BEARLY TOUCHING THE BLOCK TO SEE IF A SPARK COMES BETWEEN THE BLOCK YOU WILL SEE A SPARK IF THE COIL IS GOOD

Honda generator starts, runs, then stalls and backfires


Honda makes quite good gasoline motors. I doubt it is a valve timing issue but it might be a burned valve or a valve adjustment issue. What does after a while mean? A couple of minutes or 4 hours? Is it running for just a short while and then stops or it runs well for a long time and then stops?

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

Model pm0542000 01 coleman generator needs spark plug


This particular generator can come with Briggs & Stratton engine (spark plugs recomended will be then Champion RC12YC).

This model can come as well with Honda engine or with Subaru engine.

These variation depend on country of manufacture.

As I do not know where are you located, I give you this which is known to me, if you have Honda or Subaru engine, my best bet will be follow this advice:

1. stop engine
2. undo spark plug and note what alhanumerics are on porcelain bit, eventually grab the sparkplug and go to closest fuel station/car spares/hardware/camping store and they will be able to tell you what sparkplug and even sell you one.

Hope this will solve your problem :-)

NO SPARK?? i have a 93 honda 650 xl and it was sitting in the


are you testing the spark through a new spark plug?
some of these XL models developed a bad pulse generator.
It's part of the Stator, I can't imagine it went bad just from sitting though
