You have a poor signal to the spark plug usually caused by a rusty fly wheel found underneath the pullcord casing. clean it with releasing ajent such as wd 40. common when not in use for a while.

SOURCE: % hp Honda Motor runs on choke

Dear LC39B,
Is it possible you are blaming the wrong part of the machine? Did you try the Honda Motor on its own? I am asking , because if the pump of the washer has some fault or a bit jammed, this will demand a lot of power from the Honda. You can try the Honda with no water connection and no gun.
Regarding the Honda motor, you should check the electrical system also. I am saying this because you did not mention it, in your service procedure.
Regards,
MG.

SOURCE: Honda GC 160 Engine, I had the carb replaced about

This really sounds like a carb problem, good to hear that you are taking the carb all the way off and soaking it, this is the best way to clean a carb. I don't think it would be the fuel pump, they either work or they don't. I would check the governer springs and linkages, if one of these is hung up on something it would cause the problems the you have identified. Also, when you re-install the carb make sure that you have all the gaskets installed, it is easy to forget one and that will cause the engine to **** air and make the whole engine run like ****.

How do you remove the airbox and carbs on a 1996 Ducati 900ss?


Hi, Anonymous if your bike has been sitting idle for months or years and you did not do any pre-storage maintenance I feel your pain it will probably have a dead battery and not want to start or if it starts it will idle and run poorly, here are the following steps necessary to complete in order to get your bike back to an acceptable running condition.
1. If your battery was 3 years or older when you last had the bike running you should replace it.
2. If you believe your battery might still be serviceable remove it from the bike and put it on a 1 or 2 amp trickle charger for 24 hours. If it is the old lead acid type with visible cells and acid levels fill each cell to the top line with distilled water and replace the caps, run the vent tube into a plastic or styrofoam cup, any cells that are cloudy/milky replace the battery.
3. After charging remove the leads and let the battery sit for a couple of hours then check the battery voltage with a volt meter, you should have 12.5 volts or better, any readings in the 11 volt range you need to do a proper load test on the battery and replace as necessary, any readings in the 10 volt range you have a dead cell and replace the battery.
4. Drain and flush fuel tank, google " how to clean a motorcycle gas tank" find a couple forums to view the different options available.
5. Remove your air cleaner and clean and re-oil per Mfg. specifications.
6. Remove the carburetor, disassemble and decontaminate with a carb dip or if you have EFI remove injectors and clean with carb spray and compressed air
7. Remove fuel valve and filter disassemble and clean as necessary, remove fuel lines and replace with new ones.
8. Replace spark plug with a new one and check for spark.

Mower starts but wont keep going.it has petrol and oil,it had carberetta serviced last year.


You might have the same problem as had last year, did you burn all the old gas out last year before storing for season? If not you will have to drain old out and probably remove and clean your carbureator it probably gummed or varnished up from old gas, hope this helps you

Water in my Quad Bike engine, How do i remove all of it ?


You do not need to tear into the engine. Just remove the drain screw (or drain plug) from the carb float bowl and drain the carb. Remove the tank and dump it out. flush it with a bit more gas. Remount the tank then fill with gas. Drain a cup of gas and check for water in the bottom of the cup. Keep draining until no water is in the cup.

You may need to remove and clean the carb. Sitting for a year can allow gas to dry and form varnish that can plug up the jets. ESPECIALLY if the gas valve was left on.

A “very helpful” rating on this answer? Thanks!

Get a new stock NGK sparkplug. Check for spark. I am a bit unclear if you have spark or not. Got a good battery? Any kill switches on?

Location of carburator


The carb is the big thing bolted to the back side of the cylinder. I assume you are having carb problems. Turn off the gas at the tank. Next, on the side of the carb near the very bottom is a large screw. Remove the screw and the gas and any water in the float bowl will drain out. Put the screw back in, turn the gas back on, and see if the problem has gone away.

If not then turn the gas off again and drain the carb again. Next remove the water trap bowl behind the gas valve. Clean the bowl and put it back on. Turn the gas back on, wait a minute for the float bowl to fill and then see if the problem has gone away.

Let me know if this fixes the problem. Just post a comment.
