Just venting.... Honda push mower, 7 years old, maybe 300 hours on it. This mower has been plagued since year 3 with clogged carb problems. I've opened it up a number of times to clean the bowl, clean the jet, clean the float valve. It's always some itty-bitty barely visible piece of debris. Sometimes I never even find the debris but it runs once reassembled. Installed a fuel filter last fall before adding stabil and winterizing. I don't mind that it backfires when I back off the rpms, but the run-run-run coast cu-chug then peacefully stall to 0 rpms is frustrating. This weekend acted like the float sticks closed and runs the bowl dry. Normally it's just anemic when the main jet gets obstructed. Now the jet seems OK, float sticky, but it's got great flow into the bowl (flows great through the drain). I love the easy-start, great fuel consumption, burns zero-oil attributes to this nice machine, but I tell you a non-wrench-friendly homeowner would have ditched this thing by now due to this pesky carb. M!!
