Question about 5.5 HP GX160 Engine
When the engine is cutting off, it began to back fire. what is the problem?
I have a older 7 horse Honda on a kart. I bought it used and it had sat for a little while. It had the same problem, only difference is that mine would only idle for about 20 seconds then cut out. I found the reason to be a gunked up carb. The main jet was full of hard crust. Almost looked like calcium but I don't know why there would be calcium in there. I gave the carb, needle and float, choke, throttle, and the whole outside a good strip down and clean. It runs like brand new. I would start there if I was you.
