Question and Answers

Q:

The spark plug GCV160A1AE Honda Engine

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I don't see anything pertinent to order besides the cylinder. There is not a head gasket being used, and the valve cover gasket is included with the cylinder. I think you will be in good shape just ordering part 12000-Z0L-940. 

I hope this helps and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com. We appreciate your business.

The pull rope broke near the housing. I removed the plastic housing, re-tied the rope, coiled it, re-attached the housing, pulled the rope...but got no re-coil. I'm certain there's an art to this...one that I don't currently have.

A:

yes, the best way to do the recoil starter rope is to go over to you tube and watch a video of someone doing it. yes there's a knack for getting it right but the videos are very easy to follow and seeing it done is a lot easier than reading someone's instructions. just google repairing a recoil starter and click on any search results from you tube.

by the way all recoils starters work in the same manor so if the starter does not look like yours the spring and rope function will be the same.

A:

The problem is not in the main jet or you would have cleared it.

If the carburetor sat with old gas in it, you should probably replace the carburetor.

If you want to clean the carburetor, order a carburetor gasket set and take the carburetor apart. Count the turns as you remove the needles so you can put them back. Get a spray can of carburetor cleaner and some soft wire. aluminum wire or wire they attach tags with work best.

Remove the jets and any covers that attach with screws. Run the wire through the holes in the sides of the carburetor body. These are in the inside of the carburetor body.

After running the wire, spray carburetor cleaner through the holes and blow it out with compressed air. You might have to do this 2 times to make the engine run right.

These small openings are the fuel and air passages that get clogged and stop the engine from running right.
