Having problems with your Honda Pressure Washers ?

Honda GX390 stalling in go cart

\015 My son and I built a go cart with a Honda GX390 engine. Unfortunately, it stalls around the turns, acceleration and deceleration. Thinking it is the carburetor? Any suggestions? The engine is brand new.\015

Answers :

I believe its the the oil sensor. The engines are equipped with a low oil sensor and when you go around turns, accelerate, decelerate, the oil will flow from side to side and throw the sensor off, causing the engine to shut off. Remember, this is because the engine is from a pressure washer and pressure washers arent meant to be driven LOL.
Remove the screw in float bowl in carb. There should be a small hole in the screw from side to center, this is a very fine orifice so clean and blow out with carb. cleaner and compressed air. Then check float to make sure it is not hanging. Also check fuel to make sure you have no moisture in tank. Check oil level as some of these engines have a low oil switch and when in turns the switch may think oil level is low.
Hope this helps.
