I have a Honda GC 160 5HP engine on a Sears tiller. It starts up on the first pull but will only run for about 1-2 mineuts then quits. It will sometimes back fire and the RPM will surge. I have replaced the fuel & air filter and have also cleaned the spark plug. Any suggestions?
It sounds to me like the carb float needle is sticking open. The needle in the carb regulates how much fuel flows into the carb bowl. If the needle sticks open the fuel will continue to flow. It will flow into the cylinder and end up in the crankcase. You should be able to repair it by removing the needle and cleaning it and the tube it fits in.
I have a 27 ton Troy-Bilt log splitter with a 160cc Honda OHV/OHC Engine. It will only start and run if the choke is engaged (flap closed). If I push the rod to disengage the choke (flap partially open), it begins to pop through the exhaust and run roughly. If I push the rod all the way (flap open), then it will cut off and will not restart unless the choke is engaged again. Any help would be appreciated.
