Question about Garden
We have a the above mentioned Honda engine attached to a 2'' water pump used to pump out the holding tanks of boats. For a while now when we start it will run for about a minute, start running rough and then stall out. It can be restarted again, right away, and the same thing will happen. We have installed a new filter in the tank, replaced the carburetor, removed the head to clean and inspect the valves (they look great) reassembled everything and the same problem exist.
I don't know where to go from here. This problem started out slow and has gotten progressively worse to where it is today. After a few starts the spark plug is fouled black like it may be running too rich.
The gx 120 is only 3.5 hp, that's not a lot. For a 2" pump I would want twice that. You could look up engineering specs on other 2" pumps to see what they use. I've seen lawn mowers with more hp.
