1996 honda will not start under 60 degrees


tune it up. (fresh spark parts work best in cold and for sure damp wheather.
fresh gas?
leaking injectors?
isc stuck closed, and rpm low, hot?

the ecu, anticipates the next cold start,
it knows how much to open the iSC valve, to get a good start cold
and if colder to day, it opens more. (math)
if it (ISC) is gummed up,fas all do, it cant start right
so next time, try %10 throttle, starting, emulating a good ISC.
see?

How do you replace the honda gc190 decompression mechanism


This is a problem with GC-160 and GC-190 engines on pressure washers, tillers, etc. Once they get some hours on them and as things seat in-wear in, they get to a point you can not pull the start cord. If you remove the spark plug, the engine turns easily. The valves need adjusted. The valves are set .005" to .006" off the seat. This allows enough compression release but the engine runs. I find the valves need adjusted every 25 hours, not the 100 hours Honda states.

How adjust valve clearance


guys mainly the valve gets heated and gets expand so the valve clearance is adjusted . according to my studied knowledge the inlet valve clearance should be perfectly 0.5 mm and the exhaust port must be 0.6 to 0.7 mm. this the perfect tuning for the 2 wheelers . [ remember guys before you set valve clearance make sure that engine is fully cooled condition.....
thankyou........................................................

Honda 13 hp won't start...back fire's


Assuming that the engine has not been taken apart and timing is set correctly. Have seen this often. Usually valve adjustment. Adjust valves as per manual so that compression release is working. If compression release is not working after adjustment check for faulty cam.

GOOD DAY, Dear friends, can somebody help me with adjusting the valves gaps of Honda VT 500C. What is the proper gap? How exactly the valves can be adjusted? Thank you in advance!


Hi,
Your valve clearances should be:
Intake .08-.12 mm (.003-.005 in)
Exhaust .12-.16 mm (.005-.006 in)
I usually start all gaps in the middle of given specs, then fine tune from there.
Hope this helps

I have a 13 HP Honda that won`t run unless choke is on. I installed a new carb. and it does the same thing,any suggestions? Thanks,TheBoss


You most likely need to set your valve clearances. If it is hard to pull over or the recoil snaps back after starting your valves need to be set for sure. This may not be the entire problem but it is a good start. Also change the spark plug, a bad plug will cause odd problems and is too cheap not to eliminate as a source. In addition check your fuel, pour a little out into a white container (I like spray paint can caps for this) and look at the color. If it is yellow to orange it is bad. You can pour it into you car, the car electronic sensors will compinsate for it quality but a small engine can't. Use a NGK BP6ES or BPR6ES plug.
You need:
Feeler gages
10mm open end wrench
14mm open end wrench
1 long shaft screw driver or rod
1 spark plug socket and ratchet

Remove the spark plug and the valve cover. Pull the recoil over slowly until the intake valve opens (intake is closes to the carb and it will go down when it opens). Now put your long screwdrive down the spark plug hole. Slow pull the engine over until the screwdriver handle is at it highest point, this is top dead center. It may take a few attempts. Now check your valve clearance between the rockers and the top of the valve. The intake should be .006 and the exhaust .008, both can be +/- .001. To adjust: hold the large nut with the 14mm then loosen the small one with the 10mm. Lefty loosey. Now turn your large nut until you get the correct setting and then tighten the small one the lock it in. It may take a few attempts and alway reverify your setting after you lock it down. Once done, find top dead center again and reverify. Now your valves are set.
