SOURCE: Racing of a Honda 160 CC lawn mower engine

When a small engine "surges" in all speed ranges the possible causes are:

*Dirty air filter

*Water or contamination in the fuel system.

*Breaks in the spark plug wire (leaking), loose or corroded terminal connections causing an intermittent failure.

*Misadjusted or malfunctioning governor.

Problems with surging only when under load or at idle are likely caused by carb blockage or misadjustment.

Hope this helped and good luck to ya!

SOURCE: Honda lawn mower, self propelled mechanism not working

check the mechanism first before changing the gearbox its possible that the cable might jump out from the pulley or the cable is worn out or its possible that the gear on the tire is worn out to if not then that would be the time for you to change the gear box it would be hard to change it if you don't have the right tools to work on it if you know how everything work its not that hard to replace it just make sure were everything goes memorize the parts before disassembling cause that would be you guide to reassemble it...goodluck

High Revving Honda Lawnmower


When you put the carburetor back on did you get the linkage springs put back in the correct place? If you have a governor spring off or in the wrong place it will run fast. Running at an RPM higher than the recommended one can cause severe internal damage but shouldn't cause it to be hard to start. The hard start can also be from an incorrect linkage connection

Lawn Mower wont start


You need to obtain a manual for Briggs & Stratten engines. All the info you need will be in it. The most common cause for non starting in these engines is "Tight Tappets" Wether it's an OHV or the old "L" head engine, because they rev and work so hard, the valves seat themselves deeper into their seat which reduces the valve clearance. There is no adjustment on the older "L" engines, so you have to remove metal from either the valve stem, ot the lifter itself. I have in the past done this in situ with a point file, but it is a tedious job. Otherwise you must remove the head and take out the valves and grind the stems. A tricky task and probably should be done by a mechanic.
