Question about Honda Chipper Blower and Vac: 5.5 Hp Gas
Runs 10 sec, then dies. Will not start again unless allowed to sit 10 min.
Good compression & spark after stalling.
Gas (fresh) flows freely to carb bowl, I've cleaned entire passage between bowl & throat...no obstructions.
Had the same problem with my Honda engined mower. you can't see it easily, but there is a very fine screen in the outlet of the fuel tank that gets blocked and fuel will not pass thru it fast enough to refill carb. remove tank and pour fuel in another container . Use a flexible plastic tube in the outlet or make a small wire hook to penetrate the screen,or preferably, remove it. confirm that fuel flows freely thru it, remove any debris, and reassemble. Change spark plug, add fresh fuel,and test. best of luck!!!! Ray
