Honda Lawn Mower Engine

rickg52March 20, 2012

Trying to figure out why my Honda engine has to have the choke closed to run. Once engine starts, the auto choke opens and kills the engine. Every time.. I can place a piece of rubber under the auto choke handle and it will remain running, fully choked., What is the problem?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Main Jet in the carb is restricted from gum/varnish.
