Customer Question

The Honda Black Max walk behind self propelled lawn mower I have is 3 months old but it is hard to keep in a straight line when in use on any wheel height. Do you have a suggestion how this can be corrected?

Hi Terry, This is Dave, The Small Engine Doctor. Would you be so kind as to supply me with the model number. Honda uses many different drive systems and if I have the number, I'll be able to look at the drawing and solve the mistery of "the wandering mower". Sincerely, Dave

Terry, is it possible that it is another brand that just has a Honda engine? Where did you buy it?

Dave,

I got it at Sams Club, it is a black max. It is probably an after market mower with a honda engine

Yea Terry, sounds like your right. But SO WHAT ! Do you think that going to stop me? I'll just have to get out my X-Large stethoscope !! After dinner, I'll do some "sniffing around" and I'll come up with something. I'll speak to you a little later, OK?
