Honda gx160 will not run on idle

There are a few things i can think of that would cause that problem. #1 clean out the carb, some times when an engine sits for a little while the gas will gum up in the carb. #2 check the tuning on the carb, It is possible that the idle screw needs a bit of adjustment. #3 The gas could have gone bad. Again if it sits for a while and the gas cap doesn't seal properly your gas will go bad in a hurry.
Hope this helps.

Honda gx160 qh26 wont start, backfires thorugh exhst, new plug, re&re carb,valves in. .006 ex. .008 , sos please

The Honda GX160 is a single-cylinder multipurpose engine, so it doesn't have a timing belt, fuel filter, or any other wires other than the single spark plug wire and a ground. I'm having the same trouble with my Honda GX160. Spark is good, compression feels a bit lacking though, I haven't measured it. I've heard that the carburetor might be the cause, either needing to be cleaned or replaced as a whole. Dunking it in CLR works wonders, and if that doesn't work, you could probably find a new carburetor pretty cheaply.
