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.

The engine will always cease running when I push the choke rod all the w

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
