Sounds like debris in the carburettor. The carbs on these are relatively simple things which come apart easily. Check for debris or water in the float-bowl, and ensure both your idle and main jets are clear and you can see daylight through them.

Grey oil leak and no water pessure


depends on where the oil leaks from , normally a cloudy or "grey" oil sheen ,oozing out from here and there doesnt consern me too much , but now the oil running from the big hole or crack in the housing now that conserns me , make sure unit is "primed" with water (small flow from tip with motor off but hose turned on) if still no good then cycle your unloader a few times by tunring the pressure adjustment all the way up and all the way down with water on and motor runninng , this should work unless you have a larger problem

Hi I have a brand new Victa Mustang with the Honda GCV160 4 stroke. Hve fuelled up, added oil, turned on fuel tap but it won't start. Any ideas?


Has it been sitting? Has the gas been sitting? I'm sure the carb is all clogged and gummed up with stale gas and dried ethanol. Buy a new carb, GCV160 carbs are like $20 shipped on eBay.

Choke adjustment


The manual is on this link: http://engines.honda.com/parts-and-support/owners-manuals/GCV160 The manual depends on the serial number. It does not appear to have adjustable choke.

Poured oil in the gas tank by mistake of Honda water pressure model GCV160. Drained the gas tank, changed spark plug, drained carburetor still will not start


Sounds like you have oil in the gas galleries of the carb. Fill it with gas turn gas valve on and try starting it a few times with starting fluid to help rince/thin them out so gas can flow through them again. It may smoke more than usual for a while. Dont keep it running on the starting fluid though as it has no lubrication for the cylinder/rings and could scar the cylinder walls. If that doesnt work you can remove it and try to do it manually with a can of carb cleaner or get a new carb. They're on ebay for about $20 or a small engine supllier near you will have one for about the same or a little higher.

Leaking gas through air filter


If the GCV engine is tilted with the carb. down, it will leak gas. If it is leaking gas setting level, this indicates the float/needle is not shutting the gas off properly. Would need to disassemble carb. and check the float and probably replace the inlet needle. The float hinge may be "varnished" and not allowing the float to "move" and shut off the fuel coming into the carburetor. Hope this helps in some way.
