Carb adjustment for honda gcv160


... Pressure Washers

I have a Troybuilt pressure washer which has a Honda GC160 engine. The engine starts easily but quits after about a minute. One pull and it re-starts, then quits in a minute....... This goes on for as long as I want to keep re-starting it. Anyone know what it might be? I pulled the carb off and blew out all of the various ports I could find. I did not remove the carb adjustment screws as I have not had any luck getting them back in place during previous problems with other gas engines.

Is this true or would this be starting the motor und

Does a GX240 Honda carb have mixing adjustments? It floods after running for 2-3 minutes then fouls the plug and stops. Thanks, Mike in SC


No, the only adjustment on the carb is the high/low idle. Check your engine gaskets for leaks using either water or carb cleaner, preferably carb cleaner. Otherwise just replace the carb, it's around 60 dollars. ... Honda 8 HP Engine

I have a honda GX240K1 on a BCS tiller. The engine seems to defy reason. I have adjusted the governor, set the max speed screw, adjusted the idle speed and have achieved some success but cannot seem to control max RPM's. The engine max's out at over 5K. I have tried about everything I can imagine yet nothing seems to fix it. Spec's say that it should idle at about 1400 Rpm yet it seems to idle best at about 1800-1900. I am using a EZ328 instrument to check the engine RPM and it's reading i
