Question about Garden
I have a honda mtd pro 11a-588q795 push mower and it will not start. I cahnged the spark plug, emptied out the gas, new oil ( was empty and could not locate a plug to empty it), new air filter ( lost the cover for it though) checked spark plug wires, checked gas line( gas does flow through to carb when i checked). help me please
Did you check the engine for spark? If so, you either had spark or you didn't. If you did have spark then you may have a valve adjustment problem being that it has a Honda motor on it that bleeds of your compression hence, no start. If you didn't get any spark on the plug, then check out the unit to see if it has a dead man system built in it and i'm guessing it does. If this unit has this system then in all likely hood it also has a cable that runs down the handle towards the motor. If this cable has an adjustment on it, that may be where your problem lies. If it doesn't then it does have a braking system on it. That could be anything from a flywheel brake band to a clip that gets nicked by a ground when the dead man system is let go. You might want to have a look at a shut down wire and make sure it's not grounded anywhere and you may have to remove the pull cord casing to find that out.
Hope this helps and good luck.
