SOURCE: motor will start on choke

You say you cleaned the carb. If you did that by spraying cleaner in through the choke, that's good, but it doesn't get to the root of the problem. The problem is getting the gas into the carb. Try this. drain the gas. Put a small amount of carb cleaner and gas in the tank (about 1:1) Start it up, but don't run it dry. Let it sit for an hour. Then start it up and run the tank dry. Then try just a little gas to see if that fixed it. If not, repeat. Good luck Al K

SOURCE: % hp Honda Motor runs on choke

Dear LC39B,
Is it possible you are blaming the wrong part of the machine? Did you try the Honda Motor on its own? I am asking , because if the pump of the washer has some fault or a bit jammed, this will demand a lot of power from the Honda. You can try the Honda with no water connection and no gun.
Regarding the Honda motor, you should check the electrical system also. I am saying this because you did not mention it, in your service procedure.
Regards,
MG.

SOURCE: Runs on choke only

high speed jet is varnished, by restricting airflow your forcing the engine to draw more fuel through a partially clogged jet. will not hurt the motor, but it will worsen the fuel consumption until you clean the high speed jet. if i was you once i had it apart i would go ahead and clean the entire carb. generators are bad about doing this because they get used so sparatically

SOURCE: Poulan PP446T Pole Saw. Will run only if choke is

It is running lean. There is an air leak somewhere allowing to much air into the cylinder or crankcase. Continuing to operate lean may cause failure. If fuel delivery lines have no pin holes or cracks probably time for some professional help (pressure tests). Remove clean and reinstall the muffler (carbon fouling can also cause this). If the saw cannot exhale, it cannot inhale. HTH

SOURCE: 350 raptor only runs with full choke on ,

Hi Mike,
You will find that there is a problem with the carbie. It runs with the choke on because the choke engages the "enricher" circuit. The idle circuit is different a different circuit inside the carb. When just crack the throttle on, you use the pilot circuit, and then main jet with more twist of the grip. You will need to completely strip the carb, remove all jets, spray carbie cleaner throughout, and blow out all capillary tubes and holes inside the carb with compressed air. Pay particular attention to the fine holes inside the venturi near the butterfly valve. You may need to use a fine piece of wire, like a guitar string to open up any that are clogged.
There is not much else that will cause the symptoms you have. Check for air leaks about the inlet manifold also, spray some carbie cleaner about the manifold connections boots, the revs will change when it sucks up the cleaner through the leak.
Happy to talk to you more about it.
regards robotek

Back pack leaf blower wont run past half chick


Either your carb is still dirty as in has clogged jets or passages, bad diaphragm in the carb or you have the air/fuel needles way out of adjustment. Google what type of motor you have and how to set carb. Or even get a manual, that would be my advice. Also make sure you don't have to much 2 stoke oil in your fuel mix.

your idler jetsa are blocked ,on this carb their should be an air screw as well so it might not be set right ,this air screw should be about 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 a turn out as a rough guide .Now another favourite trick of mine is to open the drain screw on the bottom of the carb then pull the feed pipe off the tank from the fuel shut off and fill the carb with brake and clutch cleaner ,spraw it down the pipe and leave overnight ,this will hopefully unblock any very small jets within the carb body ,Yes i know its a bodge and its not the correct way but it does work on old engine with carbs like my aux outboard or my motor bike .

if you are running the engine at full CHOKE, then it is flooding the engine, but if you meant off full choke, then the carb is still stopped up. Try soaking in carb cleaner overnight after removing jet & all rubber goods. HOPE THIS HELPS.

This really sounds like a carb problem, good to hear that you are taking the carb all the way off and soaking it, this is the best way to clean a carb. I don't think it would be the fuel pump, they either work or they don't. I would check the governer springs and linkages, if one of these is hung up on something it would cause the problems the you have identified. Also, when you re-install the carb make sure that you have all the gaskets installed, it is easy to forget one and that will cause the engine to **** air and make the whole engine run like ****.
