Question about Honda Gxv160 55hp 55 Hp 25mm Dia Lawn Mower Engine
Before you spend time and money on Buds solution I had exactly the same symptom .If it starts first pull when the engine is warm it is not a fuel or spark problem ,it will be the choke,on mine when the choke lever was full on it did not opperate the choke enough as the cable goes to choke it turns the metal bit clock wise but the metal choke will bend over time and will not be opening the choke just carefully bend the metal bit with some pliers so when the cable is on choke it now actuly opens the choke,it will now start first time when cold ,try this first before you strip apart the carburetor,I liked buds solution may be you might like mine ! www.distinctivehomeimprovements.co.uk

Sounds like you have a fuel problem...
Check your fuel filter if you have one, normally they will be located in the fuel tank.
If the mower/weedeater is over a year old, then I 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.
Sounds like you will need to clean the carburetor or replace your carburetor internal rubber parts like the diaphgram and O rings.
Be sure to use compressed air to blow out all the fuel and air passages.
Be careful when blowing out the passages, because there are sometimes small rubber type seats in the bottom of some of the passages.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor or using starting fluid 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.
Keep in mind that the float for the carburetor must be level when you go to reassemble the carburetor or follow the instrucitons you get with the carburetor kit.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, you will first need to lightly seat the jet screws.
But before you lightly seat the jet screws count the number of turns it takes to seat the jet screws from their original position.
Be sure to mark the turns down on a piece of paper.
That way when you put the jets back in, you know to lightly seat them first and then turn them back out to their orginal position before you started.
