Hello, just joined

Postby yellowbeard » Thu Mar 01, 2012 9:58 pm

hey guys, got 5 honda expresses, the one that I'm working on now will crank and run for a min. then dies. I took the breather housing off, and cover the carb. with my fingers and just let a little air in between them, and it will continue to run. Got any ideas what I need to do?
Has been stored for awhile. Thanks Joe
will post pics shortly

Clean that carb thoroughly, every hole you can find and then carb cleaner and blow it free with compressed air.

I know, there's not a pedal anywhere in my shop.

Wow did that one on the far right come with the body that died on it?
