Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.
Have you tried replacing the spark plug. The Honda engine is very temperamental about the plug, the plug may look fine and you can't see anything wrong with it but I have seen this problem occur a number of times and all I had to do was replace the spark plug. The valve adjustments that you have are too wide the clearances should be .004 - .006 inches on the overhead valve engine so you will most likely need to readjust them again to proper settings. However it should allow the engine to start the way that they are.
