lawn mower issue

Hi all, I have a troy bilt self propelled mower with a Honda engine. I think I have checked everything but it will only run with the chole closed. I cannot seem to find any adjustments for this carb. I have haad it off several times and it is really a simple carb. Any Ideas?. Thanks

Hello bobbo57,

Sounds like the main jet is blocked, I don't know how you've been cleaning but use aerosol carb & choke cleaner with the little straw (any brand but Gumout) followed with compressed air if available.

Shoot through all ports and passages, Remove #16 main jet and make sure it's fully open, Remove #15 screw and shoot through those ports as well.






Good Luck
