99 Honda Fourtrax will not stay running with choke off. Would this just be a idle adjustment?


No it is not an idle adjustment. You need to remove the carb, and remove both jets ( pilot jet and main jet). Ream the jets with thin wire or compressed air. Hold the jets up to the light and make sure you can see thru them. I believe you will find your pilot jet to be clogged.

I have an older craftsman snow blower 10 hp. It starts ok with full choke, runs ok half choke, backfires with no choke-run position.


It's too lean; not enough fuel mixed with the air. Look for the main mixture screw--it should be a large screw with a spring under it on the carburetor. Run the engine until it's warm.

With the engine running, turn the screw outward (lefty-loosey) about 1/8 turn slowly and see if it improves. Slowly turn the screw back and forth until it runs best with the choke completely off. Then set it 1/8 turn richer (turn screw outward 1/8 turn) than the best position.

Reason for doing this: Conditions change, even the barometric pressure. Small engines run okay if they are a little rich but not if they are a little lean.

Honda mini tiller cuts off when start tilling. runs great when held above ground with no load. cut off seems to be associated with the movement and shacking when tilling ground.


Hi thermo259, sounds like the high speed adjustment is lean, find the high speed screw and turn it counter clockwise 1 half turn and see if that helps. Should cure it.

Wont run in run position


if it runs on choke only and it sat up for two or three months the carb diaphragm may be brittle and not pumping fuel. install a carb diaphragm and gasket kit or try opening the high speed jet a 1/4 turn

If the choke has an adjustment point, then adjust the choke to a good overall working powerband. If it still doesn't act correctly, look for vacuum leaks. If it is an option, you may want to install a manually operated choke lever.

Check the crankshaft position sensor. If the plug is loose or the sensor itself is bad it will cause similar problems
