Having problems with your Karcher 2500 PSI Pressure Washer ?

Honda small engine carb. cleaning

\015 I have a few Honda small engine tools that need carburetor cleaning due to a couple of years of no use. so I want to clean the bowls and probably the jets, but I'm used to Briggs and Stratton carbs. So how does Honda differ?\015

Answers :

Honda jets thread into the main venturi where the float bowl bolt goes. you jut need a blade/ flat screwdriver to thread it out. becareful they are only brass and thread it out and the emulsion tube should come out as well fairly easily. you may need to look inside the throat of the carb and just push the nozzle tube out. plus under the plastic idle adjustment screw there is a black plug and thats the idle jet,
Small engine carbs run from $10 to $20 bucks brand new on eBay. If it's corroded any at all just buy a new one.

Honda GC 160 Engine, I had the carb replaced about 1 year ago, now its doing the same thing. At first it wouldnt start at all, I cleaned the carb, then it started would speed up and die. I then took the carb off and cleaned the jets, now it starts with the choke in the closed position only, at high speed it sputters and dies, but will I run it at med speed it runs but will die with tiller has a load, also when you put the choke to open it always dies. I dumped all the gas, and checked the fuel

Honda GX 240 on woodsplitter stopped running. Tries to fire a couple of times each pull but dies. Found debris in gas tank. Cleaned out the tank and hose to carb. Cleaned out the sediment cup. Cleaned out the rust and debris from the bottom of the float bowl. sounds like debris in carb jets? Is it worthwhile taking the carb apart and cleaning it, or just order a new carb?

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.

Carb hunts at wot and at idle, it will backfire if your not running the trigger. exhaust pipe turns red. seems to be lean. carb is clean with a new kit, fresh gas, and spark plug. if i add some choke it runs better. all the jets are clean. carb was disassembled and soaked in engine tuner.
