cnrmoose: I couldn't get the jet out of mine, found your video and got it out and cleaned and now it runs like new. Thanks.....You prob should have mentioned a bent piece of 12 gauge wire works good for reaching through the throat and pushing the emulsion tube down out the bottom of the carb......And you will need some fine wire to get those holes cleaned out in that jet and emulsion tube.
Crisp Cuts Landscaping: Where do you get these mowers from?
Crisp Cuts Landscaping: My grandparents have the same mower.
Graham L: Good day,
I picked up one of this series of mower but with the cable controlled choke.
I've carb cleaned (spray) the carb twice. Took everything apart I could. Even soaked it. The issue is as soon as I start to take the choke off more then ~20%, it struggles and dies quickly.
Fuel from the tank is free flowing and fast (washed it out).
Spark plug is new.
Mower is pretty clean, looks like it was stored nicely.
Air filter and box is off at this time for the tests.
I'm just about out of ideas.
Any thoughts? perhaps i'm missing an adjustment?
Rhomis Rhemis: I have a hrm215, the Carburetor seems exactly identical to yours (like my other "different" Honda mover), but all I need is a Choke Spring. Do you know where I can get just that spring. The mower works perfect in all respects. I borrowed the spring from the other mower, but I still need a spring regardless.
Adam Smith: Thank you very much for taking the time to post. On your next video of carburetor cleaning it would be much more helpful if it didn't jump cut through the points most crucial to understanding the procedure. (I'm a novice).
Joseph Hampel: Wiss u would have showed it go back 2gether.
Mega Tron: This is one of the worst "how-to" videos I've seen. You pretty much showed the fact that you cleaned the carb, but not how. You skipped over all the intricate parts of getting the jets and needles out, how you cleaned them, and putting them back in. Also, did you buy a kit and replace all the gaskets, etc.?
Noah Lutton: Hi I have a Honda gvc 160 engine on a craftsman deck I was wondering if anyone had a solution to my problem when I take off choke and put it to fast my engine just slows down and lacks of power
Vincent Cortes: Courtney no repair for throt cable sorry to say you need to replace it
Vincent Cortes: Last time I checked this carb was $13-$25 not really worth cleaning just replace
Courtney Gomez: Hi, I have this same model. But my throttle wire is completely pulled out, i can still adjust the speed, but it only works on rabbit (when wire is pulled all the way out). any idea on how to fix this and get the wire back properly installed? I'm still working on taking apart everything to get to the carburetor as well ( first time mechanic and this video is very helpful)
Indywar: I know this is an old video, but maybe you are still reading/responding to comments. I am about to take apart the carb on my Honda Harmony II HRT216. Do you use automotive carb cleaner, or something special for lawnmowers. Also, any special item to clean out the orifices in the carb? Thanks.
mountainbikekayak: Hi Shawn, thanks very much for viewing and subscribing as well! I certainly have had to go back and review video how to put something back together, it really comes in good. What seems so simple to take something off and take it all apart that’s easy! The challenge is getting all back together the way it was. Really glad you got that back running again and this video actually helped you. Hopefully your Honda is in much better condition than this one, you take care!
Shawn Carlson: hi there . . . . I just watched this video because, I took mine apart. . . and I completely scrweed up on how to put the bars and springs together that were attached to the carb. and your video showed me how. I had mine rigged somehow that it was stuck on one speed, and what happened was. . . it ran like it was on steroids. and spun super fast. so I will take it apart and put the bars and springs together the way they are suppose to fit.. . . thank youf or the video my friend ..

mountainbikekayak: Hi Joel thanks for viewing! That is a limiter cap (idle mixture screw) if it’s the gray in cap looking lever you are referring to. Really should not have to do any adjustments to these carburetors everything is fixed unless yours is slightly different. So it’s RPM for idling that can be adjusted. Hope yours is in much better shape than this poor lawn mower. For such a nice lawn mower it had not been taken care of looked like it was just left outside. Thanks again and take care!
Joel Krueger: I have a Honda lawn mower with a very similar carburetor. Do you know what the gray lever is on the top rear of the carburetor? It looks like a manual hand adjustment for something.
mountainbikekayak: Hi AmericanConcrete thanks for viewing, there is several versions of this type carburetor. By chance does this one have a back out screw that locks that nozzle in place. It will need to be screwed all the way out to get it in properly. If not just make sure the nozzle is getting pushed all the way up into the carburetor where you can see the brass end showing in the air chamber. Also make sure that area is cleaned out as well where the nozzle goes you will get it!
AmericanConcrete: Can't get the nozzle to set back in. Got any tips?
