Check to make sure the filter isn't plugged. If it is good, look below the filter and see if it touches or interferes with the governor spring or the governor rod on the carbueratior linkage. Thos are anout the only situations where an air filter would keep an engiine from running. Marvin.

Roger Hi, It sounds like the air filter need replacing for a new one. Try first washing it with some mild detergent then dry completely. When it's dry put a tiny bit of oil on to stop any dirt getting through and replace it.

Engine will not start

Spray some either into the air filter. If it starts and runs for a few seconds then it is not getting fuel. If it won't start it may be getting too much fuel. Verify that there are no vacuum leaks and that the bowl of the carb has gas in it.

Remove air filter cover. Remove air filter. Remove the 3 10mm screws mounting the air filter housing assembly and carb to motor. You will need new gaskets to install the new carb. Gaskets: 16221-883-800 2ea., 16212-ZL8-000, 16228-ZL8-000, and the gasket for the back of the air cleaner mount 17228-ZMO-000. You can buy the carb for these on line for about $14, 16100-Z0L-023. Most take a NGK PLUG BPR6ES.

Exceive fuel is being burned but not so much as to turn the cheak engine light on? How bad is it ? 10 MPG? things to check; Fuel pressure both high or low will cause problems. Timing, most can't be changed , but timing belts can jump off a tooth to standard and it'll have reduced compression less power then burn more fuel. Lack of oil and filter changes, both the oil ( makes the engine drag) ( fume), and the air filter. If you live in a non dusty area you can ty running one tank of feul with the air filter removed , if this helps the filter should be replaced. If it appears dirty replace it anyway.

Troy built mower honda 160 engine oil leak around governer shaft. no oil seal but shows one on parts breakdown. Can not find part number for shown seal.

Drain oil from mower until proper level. Remove spark plug and pull starter rope several times to blow out cylinder. Spray starter fluid in cylinder pull rope several times to clean out. Replace fouled plug with new spark plug. Remove air cleaner, ensure no oil present, replace filter as needed. Clean air filter box with carb cleaner. Install new air filter reattach filter cover. Prime engine, pull starter rope 1/2 way 4 times to help prime, then pull starter rope fully up to 10 times to start.

Your carbeurator is crudded up. Get a can of aerosol carbeurator cleaner at any auto parts store. Remove the air filter and spray two squirts of cleaner into the air intake.
