Customer Question

I have a Honda gx620, seems to flood out. Checked and have spark on both cylinders, changed the coils in case one was dropping out at higher rpm. Replaced carburetor, someone said the valves were burnt, replaced the valves. Choke works as it should. It will crank and run smooth at idle or did, now surges some but needs plugs again. When you crank it and go to high rpm, it will get there and then slowly fall off blowing black smoke. It has an electric fuel pump on it, cut the power wire just to ensure that it was flooding the carb. Ran the same. I have also checked and made sure that the flywheel key didn't break and spin the flywheel. At a loss on what else to do.

HI You did that already , that was fast you put the new kit in ??
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Yes I work on cars for a living but these little engines give me lots of grief at times. Is there anyway possible that the cam timing could be off? I just used the electric pump to prime it and then ran what it could pick up. It did the exact same thing. You can watch the fuel sputter out on the intake elbow
