SOURCE: no spark on GV100 honda engine mountfield laser

I assume you replace the coil due to the fact you didn't have any spark. If so, make sure you have the leg gap to flywheel correct. 12 thou should get you spark. However, if still no spark, check out the switch at the lower section of the cable. May only need an adjustment there, as the old cable do stretch with time and the gap is now incorrect. Make sure when you engage the cable that the switch isn't still grounded. Also, check the flywheel key to make sure it's not sheared off. Good luck

You need to clean or rebuild your carburetor. If you're so inclined to do it yourself, there are many great videos on youtube. Here's a good one that shows a Tecumseh carb, but they are all basically the same once you get them off the machine. The problem I have with the Honda's is aligning all the parts and gasket when putting them back on. Here's the link and you can search for more. As I said, there are plenty of videos, and once you do one, successfully, you'll get the hang of it. Otherwise, take it to a professional for a good cleaning. Best of luck.

Honda gv100 lawnmower blowing eng oil out of breather pipe intoairfilter resulting in excessive smoke from exhaust


Hello,
I think that will find that the wire strainer has become blocked in your engine breather system. Unfortunately the engine breather for your engine is located under the flywheel, the flywheel will have to be removed with a puller as this is a taper fit on the engine crankshaft and usually a very tight fit ( especially if it has never been removed before ), once removed you will find a small cover held on with two 6mm bolts, remove the cover and you will see a wire stainer, wash this out, and if possible blow it through with compressed air until you can see through the wire strainer when you hold it up to the light, refit all parts and hopefully you will have many more years service from your lawnmower, I write this as I have a garden machinery repair business in Chedzoy, Somerset, England and have had a very similar problem with a customers lawnmower, best of luck and happy mowing.

Where is the oil plug underneath the mower?


Depending on what engine is on your Toro lawnmower, there may not be a oil plug under the mower deck. A briggs and stratton engine will have one, but if the unit has self propel then you will have to move the guard over the self propel cable. This is a 1/2 in bolt, you will also have to loosen the other bolt to swing the guard around.
On a Kawasaki or Honda, and even if you have a Tecumseh engine then just start the mower up for a few minutes and let the engine oil get warm, then shut the engine off and then lay the mower on the side that has the oil filler cap and put your drain pan under the oil filler cap. You can then drain the oil out of the oil filler tube. You can also do this with the briggs and stratton engine. I find this to be a very convenient way to change the oil.
Then put fresh oil back in the unit. I always suggest to put the engine manufacturer's oil back in the unit, or if that is not available then use another oil from another engine manufacturer. IF you use automotive oil, the oil will break down faster since the heat level for the engine on car is less than that of the engine on your lawnmower. The engine has a water cooled design, that keeps the engine temperature from raising over about 250 degrees F. The engine temp on your lawnmower can get as hot as 400 degrees F in the summer heat and being run for 30 minutes or longer.
A longer answer than you had hoped but I hope the information keeps your lawnmower running well for many summers to come. :)

Smoke from engine of lawnmower


usually large clouds of smoke are from having too much oil in the crankcase, or tipping the mower so that oil runs into the cylinder. Check the level of oil, and make sure it's not overfilled.
