Hello and Welcome to Justanswer, My name is XXXXX XXXXX X am here to try and assist your with your question
The carb is shot needs to be rebuilt
Also could have crap in the tank
Is this something I should try myself? If so how do I find parts? I can't find any decal that says make and model?
seen this happen all the time with Honda lawn mowers and I usually rebuild the carb and clean the tank out
I would take it to the Honda repair shop
The carb kit you can get from the Honda dealer
If you want to try youself
I also have a Lowes service number but I'd rather go to a Honda expert
The dealer will charge around 100 dollars to rebuild the carb including the kit
I have several Hondas and work on small engines
I've rebuilt MGs so I'm not afraid of the challenge. How do I find a dealer in Simpsonville SC or via mail order?
Check the web google for a Honda dealer
If there is not one close by then mail order from the closets one
check the internet may find some good deals on a kit
How about oil issues. I can't find any oil drain plug. I tipped the mower on its side to drain the oil but I got less than a pint out. Would this account for any symptoms. How do I find out the true capacity?
The drain plug is on the side of the motor and I usally have to tip it. It should take around 1 quart of oil maby a little less
Thanks a bunch. I appreciate the help. On submarines at sea we had to fix everything without outside advice so this is a big help.
