Honda HR194 SX

Yesterday, I did a "real tune up" for my 19 years old Honda HR194 lawn mower. Here were the tasks:

1. Total cleaning in-out, up-down the whole unit.
2. Replace the oil
3. Replace the spark plug
4. Remove and clean the carburator, fuel filter, air filter.
5. Clean and reset the coil
6 Replace the blade
7. Lubrication all links, springs....

Now the Honda will not start and the rope is very hard to pull if I start it in normally way (set the choke on then pull the rope).

But If I set the choke, ENGAGE THE CLUTCH then pull the rope, the unit will start right on the first try and the rope is easier to pull.

Any suggestion??

Thank you

Sounds like the clutch is not releasing. I picked up an HR215 with similar symptoms, the BBC was clogged with grass.

Canguy: Thank you for the input.

I checked and cleaned the clutch area, lubricated all the springs and linkage. However, the clutch still automatic engaged whenever the engine runs. This is very dangerous condition.

I tried to remove the clutch but the nut just turns with the shaft. Somehow I have to lock the shaft to remove the nut.

May be the clutch needs to be replaced . What do you think?
