Sounds like you will need to clean your carburetor.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor a few times, and letting it run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
If the mower/weedeater is over a couple years old, then I also recommend that you buy and install a new carburetor repair kit,because the diaphragm will get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, You will first seat the jet screws and count the number of turns it takes to seat the jets from their original position.
That way when you go to put the jets back in, you know how many turns they were in/out.
Please rate me,
Good Luck,
I hope this helped

92 accord starts and then shuts off

If the battery was dead/charged/replaced the vehicle may have to go through an idle relearn procedure. Get it running and try to keep it running by feathering gas pedal until it reaches operating temp. Ideally you want to be able to take it for a drive for the Honda PGM system to relearn

Lx 4 cyl carbuerated

Could be a vapor-lock problem where the gas in the carb is boiling out.
You could try carb cleaner sprayed into the air cleaner to verify.
Could also be the fuel pump relay if equipped.

It sounds like you still have dirt floating around. What did you coat the tank with? I used POR-15 with great results. Install a gas filter that you can see through and see if you are still getting dirt from the tank. Check the new carb for dirt. It sounds like something is somewhat plugged which allows gas to slowly fill your carb after it sits. But this clog is what causes your bike to stop after 5 miles. Does your tank have a shutoff valve? Run a line from the valve to a jar and see how well the gas flows. The shutoff valves usually have a screen....check it for dirt.

When you had the fuel filter off, did gas flow freely from the hose? Sounds like maybe the tank has dirt in it blocking the fuel line. Other than that, maybe there is dirt in the carburetor bowl.

MY GX 240 starts fine runs great any where from 30

Can your gas tank breathe? Is your fuel filter clogged? Might there be something in the tank that would obstruct the flow of fuel?

Check the tank by loosening the top to allow air to enter.

Let me know what happens

Gas go's on then shut off

Check the exhaust for good air flow.
Remove the rear exhaust vent and run the dryer.
If that corrects the problem repair the vent blockage.
If it does not correct the problem replace the gas valve coils.
