The Honda 5.0 gc160 owners manual calls for an NGK BPR6ES for proper heat range. Should be available at any Lawnmower shop or online at ebay

SOURCE: cranks fast but wont start

Hi, You did a good job of diagnosing your problem. Gas in bowl and dry plugs, starts with fluid, But, to quote you, "won't go through carb" . If you feel confident, you should disassemble and clean the carb, as that is going to be the problem. As a tip, if the genset is going to sit make sure to turn off the fuel flow to the engine and run till the engine dies. They do not like to sit any length of time with fuel in the carb. Good Luck, this should Fixya!

SOURCE: I need an IPL for Honda GC160 5hp engine

This may help. Get the name and number off from the carb such as walbro or zama to name a few and go to that indivdual web site and print out a parts list. I have done it many times and it works for me. I hope this will help. Donnyb60

SOURCE: no electricity from generator

If you have a voltmeter, you can check the voltage coming out of the outlet. If you have some kind of residual voltage, such as 25 Volts AC or 10 volts ac, then you probably have a voltage regulator problem and your regulator will need to be replaced. If you read 0 volts then you you have an open between the output (outlet) and the windings of the stator.

SOURCE: Honda Pressure Washer HP 5 not starting

You can try spraying some carburetor cleaner into the carb. If it starts for a minute, your carburetor need cleaning. When you added new gas did you remove the old gas first? Is the air filter clean?

Want is the spark plug gap on a Honda GC160 - 5.0 model # wp2003omhb

usually honda uses 0.024in spark plug gap, if you are using new plugs they specifically say that they do not require being gaped, if you are maintaining old plugs use 0.024in as the Honda standard.
