Honda GVC160 wont start OHC cover dented

Contractor had a nose-to-tail. The cover with OHC embossed on it is dented. Wont start. Could the dented cover be stopping the cams, valves functioning properly? How do you remove the cover. took out the 4 bolts but still holds tight and I'm dubious about forcing it.

The cover does have the valves underneath. The cover is sealed with a gasket so carefully pry it off. You can fix the dents, then replace the cover sealing it with RTV sealer if you ruin the seal.
It's unlikely the starting problem is here.

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

00' Toyota Camry -- Need to repair spacing issue.


There are two solutions:

1. Remove the taillamp cover from inside the boot and then remove the tail lamp unit and disconnect the wiring. Using a long piece of wood about 3-4cm x 1-2cm place 1 end where the dent is and then gently tap the other with a hammer until the dent comes out. If the dent is on the seam you can try a thinner piece of wood, but make sure it's strong enough and doesn't splinter.

2. Very simple - go to DIY or Automotive store and buy some silicon sealant - then just pump it into any gaps and smooth off - just make sure there is no dampness around the lamp before you start.

Option 1 will look best, but option 2 is easier. You could also combine the two options to get the bodywork closer to the lamp before adding the sealant.

I'd recommend either clear or black sealant for best results.

Husqvarna R53SV Petrol Mower wont start. I think too much oil had been put in. I drained some out bu still wont start. Is the engine flooded? how could i start it? Thanks


Use starting fluid when it does finally start continue starting until all the oil is cleared out of the carburator you may need to repeatedly choke out the carb with the engine running to clear out the carb, do this by removing the air cleaner, start the mower on high speed rpm, and cover the air intake with your hand repeating this start/ choke/ stall procedure until it is cleared out it works, I just did this to a mower last week that had too much oil in it, the mower smoked quite a bit but eventually returned to normal
