Question about Garden

Open Question

My DLT 3000 has a Honda 16.5 hp v twin engine, my problem is when engine warms up it starts to spit and pop running on one cylinder and the unburned gas smell is bad. Today I was trying to mow poping along and it quite running. After cooling a bit it started again but popping, I got it to my garage an when I turned off the key it would not shut off, had to bog it down to stop the motor. Any help would be great.

If you are able...have someone do a compression check on the engine. Usually if a mower is loosing power and it is a twin cylinder engine, one of the headgaskets may be blown.

Check compression, should be over 90psi to start. And check spark. The loud pop I am going to assume came from the exhaust, which if you lost spark would cause excess gas to ignite. Causes of no spark, bad coil, or defective and or damaged safty swith.

I have a Craftsman DLT 3000 Honda 16.5 HP Overhead Cam V-Twin 42" deck.....It will start but will not move...its locked up...I had done all things to make this go...any suggestions

The drive pulleys do have Shear pins where they go on the shafts. These pins do shear off once in a while. With your machine turned off try to turn pulleys by hand . If they turn easily then these could be broken. Just a thought. Try turning your drive wheels by hand with tractor in gear as the drive wheels have safety pins as well. The pins are inside the wheels or pulleys and you have to remove them to insert the pins.

2004 v twin 16 hp 500hours on it runs but spits fuel throught carb when giving gas runs like its missing on one cylinder replaced carb, plugs, fuel filter, it has 120 lbs of compression in each cylinder...

You should take one of the heads off and look at the valves. You may have deposits building up no the valves.

120 pounds compression sounds pretty good for a six year old engine with 500 hours on it. It probably started life at 9 to 1 and now is around 8 to 1.
