How to remove carbeurator on honda gx 390

I am not sure how to remove carb. there are two threaded bolts that also secure the air filter housing but once the nuts are removed i don't see any obvious place to remove the bolts and carb.

Remove the wing nut on top of the air filter housing. remove housing. remove next wing nut over air filter. remove air filter and bottom of housing. next, remove the 2 nuts on those threaded bolts you saw. there is one more bolt that you must remove located between the air filter and the exhaust. now the carb can be removed. this is possibly going to be very difficult but trust me, it can, and must be done. the carb should slide off of those bolts once you break it free from the intake. get your pry bars ready but try not to break any of those plastic parts! good luck.

Did not need to remove carb. just removed the bowl and did a real good cleaning on the float valve, used a cleaning solution. The leaking gas was a stuck float not a bad gasket. Thanks

Removing carborator

To remove the carb, first undo the 2 bolts on the front of the panel to expose the air filter area. Then undo the 2 nuts either side of the carb air hole. This will help you remove the rest of the control panel, reveiling the carb.

I'd be willing to bet that you removed the carb to replace the choke cable as it's very difficult to replace with the carb in place. Now, did you replace the seal that the carb "plugs" into? I've seen this happen many times. I never take a carb off an Evo or later model engine with the spigot mount carb without replacing that seal.

The only thing that you didn't mention was the response of the slide in the carb. With the air filter off but the backing plate still on the carb, rev the engine and make sure the slide is going up and down. If not, you've probably got a hole in the diaghragm.

More than likely, you've got a vacuum leak at that carb seal. When you put the air filter backing plate back on the engine, you should not have to move the carb up, down, or sideways to get the three screws started in it. If you do, you need to replace the seals on the manifold at the heads and realign the intake.

If you determine that you need to do this, replace the intake seals at the head but leave the manifold bolts loose. Replace the carb into the manifold, and install the air filter backing plate. Once it's all installed and aligned correctly, tighten the two bolts on each runner of the intake at the heads.

I hope this helps, Good Luck

I have a Honda GX 390 with 13 hp power washer. Overheating.

Make sure the engine is not full of paint or dust debris in it's cooling system. If the fuel mixture setting is very lean, it can cause overheating. Make sure the fuel tank vent is open to prevent fuel starvation. Does the engine seem to be running at full operational speed? If not, it will be short on developed horsepower. Make sure the water source is not partially shut off. Hope some of this helps!

2. Loosen the four bolts by using a Phillips-head screwdriver.
3. Disconnect the clip from the bolt on the air cleaner housing, then remove the air cleaner housing cover.
4. Remove the old air cleaner element.
5. Carefully clean the inside of the air cleaner housing with a damp rag
(The coolant lines inside the air cleaner housing may be warm. Do not open the hot air valve when cleaning the inside of the air cleaner housing)
6. Place the new air cleaner element in the air cleaner housing.
7. Reinstall the air cleaner housing cover. Reinstall the clip on the bolt; make sure the clip is under the washer. Tighten the four bolts.

Honda gx 390 only starts when it feels like it

Sometimes you have to lower the air pressure in the tank to allow it to run. The back pressure from the compressed air in the compressor head overcomes the pressure created in the engine at the slow RPMs you are able to pull while attempting to crank it.
