Pull off the float bowl. Clean the bowl and bowl nut. Also in the threaded are where the bowl nut screws in there is a fuel jet / orifice with a tiny pin hole in it. If you have a inlMake sure that pin hole is clear of debris. Pull off the hose going to the carb and make sure you have good fuel flow to the fuel manifold. If you have poor fuel flow check the in line filter and the fuel tank exit port for debris. Use carb cleaner to clean fuel passages. With the float bowl remove the the main fuel line disconnected shoot carb cleaner from the float needle to the fuel hose connection and then from the fuel hose connection to the float needle. Reinstall the main fuel hose, float bowl and nut. Check for leaks BEFORE switching on the ignition.

Additionally make sure the engine Oil is serviced correctly. There is a low oil sensor that will kill the ignition if the oil level is low. For trouble shooting only you can disconnect ONE wire and check spark. If you did not have spark with the oil sensor connected and you have spark with it disconnected then the oil level sensor is either working correctly sensing a low oil lovel or... it is dirty and needs cleaned.

This SHOULD get you up and running again. If not just respond here with your ENGINE number and I will help you

My Honda FG100 tiller's tines spin when not in the dirt but as soon as I put them in the dirt they stop. What could be wrong with it?

My guess is the clutch shoes bite enough to turn when unloaded but slip when loaded. Try for a view of the parts. You will need your chassis number off the machine label as there are several versions of the FG100. A good handyperson/home mechanic should be able to change these / establish the fault. Parts are at your local Honda garden agent or online.

Honda FG100 Tiller - Tines wont move

I took the transmission apart and the gears were fine. The friction pads on the centrifugal clutch don't seem to make full contact with the drum. Does anyone know what the thickness of the friction pads are suppose to be? I used some belt dressing on the pads and got some movement on the tines. With no wear on the gears, I guess I'll be replacing the clutch.

Cannot keep tiller running

Could a gas/oil mix been used by mistake. When you cleaned carb did you also clean dusty air filter?? Try leaveing off filter first and run. Are you sure you are in "choke position" when engines seems to be running ok,be sure to double check yourself here. If engine runs ecelleant in "choke" sounds like your in "Run" position and positioning is problem not performance.

Please rate. Thanks jj505
