  1. Thanks Jeremy! I was relieved to find out that there is definitely a compression relief mechanism built in to reduce compression during starts. This is why there was no compression when I put my thumb over the sparkplug hole while cranking it…

  2. Can I use a paperclip to clean the holes inside the carb? I don't have any compressed air. My poulin pro surges and will die when I hit any kind of normal thickness grass. I pulled on some wire thingy (maybe it's the choke) and it ran at full speed for a while. Then it just died. There was gas coming out of the air cleaner. New spark plug and new air filter in it. New oil. I get a spark with the plug. Thanks!

  3. Thanks Jeremy,

    I have a Honda engine very similar to this one except it has an automatic return choke with fixed throttle. I cleaned the carb and is not running right. It runs rich, uses twice as much gas, and erratically surges with occasional puffs of black smoke. The new spark plug also fouls quickly. When I cleaned the carb I tried not to change any adjustable controls. Could it be that I didn't get something reinstalled property that does allow the choke to close completely?

  4. Hi Jeremy. I removed and cleaned my HRR 216 carb per your video. I replaced all gaskets with new and put it all back together. It won't start and gas is running out of the air cleaner? What did I do wrong?

  6. Hi Jeremy. Turns out that we didn't need a new carb. Just a thorough cleaning of all it's parts. Bought all new carb-air cleaner gaskets. Had a problem by not installing them in the correct manner. I downloaded a view of this carb and gaskets. My wife made sure I positioned each correctly. Voila, we now have an excellent running Honda lawnmower. Thanks so much for your valued assistance. Pete M.

  7. thanks for trying, but you had everything done; didnt really show how to do anything to those of us that know nothing, where did the jets come from what are all those parts,  didnt help at all…. take care.

  8. The little bar that hooks to the plastic part of the carburetor on my lawn mower is missing,….I had searched so many videos to see what was supposed to go there, as someone else had worked on the mower and gave up before I got it…..what is the function of this  (2:45 ) you can see it.  Would this make the mower not start?  It was an almost new mower, wouldn't start in the spring, probably old gas…then someone decided to clean the carb and I don't think got all the parts back in it.

  9. Jeremy, in this vid you say to remove the brass needle valve that has the limiter cap on top (by heating the green glue).  When you reinstall, how many turns out do you set that needle???????

  10. I have a Honda Harmony  HRM215 plastic deck mower MZBB-6011398, starts and runs great, oil is coming out of the carburetor, leaking thru the air filter and then onto the deck.  do you have any ideas on this.  oil is only coming out of the carburetor. Thanks George  Your Video's are great, Keep up the good work.

  11. I tried removing my idle mixture screw limit cap by heating it with a cigarette lighter. Wound up snapping the head off. Luckily I can remove it and replace it. Needs something more like a propane torch to heat the glue enough. I heated it for a minute with a cigarette lighter and no go. Well, it did go but not in the way I wanted it to LOL.

  13. Good day,

    I picked up one of this series of mower but with the cable controlled choke.

    I've carb cleaned (spray) the carb twice. Took everything apart I could. Even soaked it. The issue is as soon as I start to take the choke off more then ~20%, it struggles and dies quickly.

    Fuel from the tank is free flowing and fast (washed it out).

    Spark plug is new.

    Mower is pretty clean, looks like it was stored nicely.

    Air filter and box is off at this time for the tests.

    I'm just about out of ideas.

    Any thoughts? perhaps i'm missing an adjustment?

  14. Good information, but you speed through too many things. I've had the carburetor off several times, trying to solve an engine speedup/slowdown problem. Cleaned out some of the jets but not all you mentioned. You go through that too fast. And maybe I need to change all the gaskets now? Also–your camera shakes too much, you need a tripod. And use a horizontal format.
