Question: Honda GCV160 Suddenly Burns Oil

egumpher

I have a Husky pressure washer with a Honda GCV160 engine. I regularly change the motor oil. The engine started to burn oil at rate of about 1/4 quart every hour of operation. I've rebuilt many small engines in my day and will order replacement valve seals and piston rings. Since I don't have a service manual for this engine and therefore don't know the proper torque values to split the case I will change the valve seals first to see if that fixes the problem.

Is there a service manual available with torque values and other important information for the GCV160?

Thank you and best regards
Eric

Hello egumpher,

You may be able to go online and download a service manual for your Honda engine. Or you can contact a Certified Honda Dealer in your area and they will be able to obtain one for you.

Question: New Carb Leaking

1172931

I just replaced the old carburator and gaskets on a honda gcv160. Now when I turn the gas line on, it leaks gas at about an ounce or two a minute. It is hard to see where it is coming from. It doesn't seem to be the gas line, and it looks like maybe closer to the air filter than the motor.

What did I do wrong?

The experts say that your float valve is stuck in the open position allowing fuel to run out of the top of the carb. I had the same problem with a NEW carb

It only takes a small piece of debris to hold that needle valve open. You will need to drain the fuel system, remove the bowl, remove the float and needle assembly and flush the cavity where the needle valve seats. Try that and post back if needed.
Kill switch wire broke. Wondering (before I pull it apart) where the end mounts (not the switch end)? Engine runs but have to "stall" it to shut down...

Question: Honda GCV Won't Start

1148191

Last year I bought Black Max power washer and used it for 1 hour. I cleaned it and stored it in my heated basement over the winter. I used it again yesterday and after about an hour the washer started to lose power before the engine stopped running. I tried pulling the starter cable and the recoil was really hard. I had vented the wand so there was no pressure in the power nozzle. I checked the plug and it was black with heavy carbon. I cleaned it and reinstalled it but the engine will no longer start and the power required to pull the cord it excessive. I called Black Max and they told me to call Honda. I called Honda and they said to call an engine repair shop. Any ideas before I do that?

Thanks.

check the oil....
Home Depot has a lawn mower with the Honda GCV160 Electric start version engine. They also have a pressure washer with the Honda GCV160 engine. I have a disability that makes it difficult to pull the starter rope. I would like to get the electric start on the pressure washer. My local Honda bike shop service center said they use different blocks. Can I get a pressure washer pump mounted to the Honda GCV160 Electric start version engine? If necessary, are there adapter plates that can be purchased or manufactured for this application?

Please help,
Thank you.

Hello bguert,

Try to Google - Electric Start Pressure Washers - and see what comes up. There are a few of them out there. Also Karcher makes a few different models of electric pressure washers.

Hope this helps,

Question: Mr

I have a Husky pressure washer with a Honda GCV160 engine. It is about two years old anf has been used very little. Last Fall I used it and the engine ran"lumpy" hunting RPM, low power. I drained the fuel, ran the carb out and put it in the barn. LAst week I filled the fuel tank and have trouble: It starts on full choke but as soon as I move the choke the slightest bit the engine coughs and dies. Took the carb off cleaned all with Berrymans, blew out passages, visually checked orfices and float/valve. All look fine carb is spotless but same problem. Also checked fuel tank filter and hoses and shot off valve, fual fills carb quickly.

Any ideas? Thanks, bob

Hello Bob,

It still sounds like carburetor problems to me. Even though you did clean the carburetor as you said. We have an article and video on that subject. Here is the link to it.

While your in there look for worn gaskets or any thing that looks like it needs replacing.

According to the owners manual the VIN has 3 groups of characters and the third group is the type. Yours would be H5AF.

How challenging is it to replace the coil assembly on my honda gcv160 engine? It is used on a lawn mowe.

[QUOTE=gerryrigger;70280]How challenging is it to replace the coil assembly on my honda gcv160 engine? It is used on a lawn mowe."

Very easy. On a scale of 1 (no effort) to 10 (tough) it's a 2. Just did it today along with quite a few other replacements (carb, gas tank, starter pulley, etc.) on a GVC160 that caught on fire. The key is to use the shadow (clean spots) beneath the mounting bolt heads to position it corrrectly before you finally tigthen it down. Then turn the flywheel to make sure the flywheel and coil aren't in contact.

Good luck.

A correction. I had a used coil from another gcv160 which had marks from the mounting bolts from the previous installation. Your new coil won't have them, so measure the gap between the flywheel and the coil before your remove your old coil and use the measurement to position the new coil. Then turn the flywheel to make sure the flywheel and coil aren't in contact.

Have had an ideling problem with this engine since brand new. Very, very cold blooded. Have had carburator apart twice, blew out the jets and could not find anything plugging the jet holes. Does anyone have a solution other than buying a new carburator.

Your carb is intentionally set very LEAN to meet current EPA emission standards. You can try to bore out the main jet with a torch cleaning kit, so it will pass more fuel. Be careful doing so, you do NOT want it to pass TOO MUCH.

the auto-choke lever does not move anymore when the handle is pressed. gcv160 is on a Husqvana push mower. Also, what is the correct orientation of the rod govenor & throttle spring return on the carb? Any photos?

Question: GCV 160 Won

Bob

My GCV 160 used on Campbell Hausfeld pressure washer won't start. New in 2002. Religiously maintained. Tried so far: new plug, air filter, drained fuel/added new fuel (although always used Stabile and past year Star Tron in fuel), changed oil which is at proper level. This unit ALWAYS started on first or second pull. Not now???

Reply: GCV 160 Won

Mike B.

The carb float is made of plastic, and the needle and seat fits poorly as well. The stable and Star-tron will distort the float over time. Try pulling the float out, drop it in either water or gas, to check for a hole in the float. Also, remove the needle valve, blow through hole with air pressure.
If that heals it, try to empty the carb of fuel after using, and drain the tank if to be unused for more than a month. Good luck.

I have owned a lot of lawn mowers over the years. The Honda GCV160 engine on the Lowes Troy built model 11A-542Q711 lawn mower is the worst engine I have seen. Since brand new the engine burns rich (black smoke emits from the exhaust). The spark plug fouls up after approximately 15 minutes running, causing the engine to stop.

adjust the mixer screw on top of the carb.
turn the screw to about 1 1/2 anticlockwise.

I agree, worst engine ever! Had the same problems, went through the whole carb process and ended up buying a new one with all new gaskets. Fuel started running from carb, black smoke, fouled my NEW spark plug...cleaned and replaced four times. still does not work, it leaks and wont start. This mower is going to be my next boat anchor! The BB62Z carb is the worst piece of engineering I have ever seen!

Oh, and there are not adjustment screws on this carburator to adjust the air/fluel mixture.
