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

My BE Honda 5.0 2900 psi pressure washer has oil in air filter. I believe it is because my buddy left it tilted to the side in th ecar when he borrowed it. How can I fix it? It is probably low on oil as...

hi there ibharti sounds like gx 160 honda ohv engine

replace the air filter if it has been wet with oil, , remove the float bowl and check for oil in the carb, blow the jets out, top up the oil to the point on the oil filler so that it just spills over when the threads start for the screw in cap ( from memory units only hold 600 or 700 mil of oil
use a 10w/40 or 20w/50 ) as honda have a problem with 30 wheight oil in respect to oil level shutdown sensors ( oil thins out too much ) and switch float does not float

if all is good in carby , remove plug and check oil has not got into combustion chamber
blow out with air if need to , refit plug , reassemble

let er rip , with water connected to pump of course or seals will burn from dry run

note unit may blow blue white smoke for a little while clearing itself , then settle back

in the mean time here is web site for parts if need
go to honda brand ,

Won't run at a constant speed.

Your carbeurator is gummed up. Put some carbeurator cleaner additive in your fuel, making sure that it is fresh gasoline, not gas that has been sitting in a can all winter. Also, spray some carb. cleaner into the air intake which is accessable by removing the air filter. Finally, if the air filter is dirty, replace it. happy power washing!

I have a preesure washer with a honda motor. will only start with air cleaner removed

The air cleaner filter may need to be replaced. Also, it sounds like the carbeurator needs to be cleaned. Get a can of aerosol carbeurator cleaner and spray four or five quick bursts into the air cleaner while the filter is off. Run the pressure washer for 30 seconds to get the cleaner into the carberator. Then let it sit for a couple of hours and repeat the process.

Pull cord broke

if you have not replaced cord you will need to do this,when you fit the cord turn the pulley 4 or 5 times full circle the same way as if it was pulling cord,then feed cord through pulley and out of housing to fit handle when this is done you can let pulley recoil and you should have correct tension,hope this helps
