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
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
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
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.
Vincent Cortes: Last time I checked this carb was $13-$25 not really worth cleaning just
hardcoremofo: I got a HRX217tda honda. I cleaned up the carb and jets. Got it to start
but the issue is the throttle. If set on fast (rabbit) it runs fine, when
we I set it on med, it Revvs up and down. Dies when set on low. No clue
what to do next. Any suggestions will help, thanks.
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?
mountainbikekayak: Hello Ovi, thanks for viewing and that’s excellent news. Your back in lawn
cutting after it sat for 2 years glad this was helpful and very nice
picture of yourself and baby on your channel as well. Take care!
Ovi Duran: My Honda Harmony is now working. Had it stored for two years until I saw
this video. I did exactly as you showed in here and the lawnmower started
right up. Thank you very much. Much appreciated.
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 .. BLACKJACK '98
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!
Hair Do: Thanks for the tip. I do know it's hard to earn money. But it is much better than working minimum wage at mcdonolds. Being an hair stylist does get tips and I end up making decent money. Plus it allows me to be creative sometimes and make customer's dream come to reality.
