Mine is a craftsmen special edition because it has the honda engine. Bought online 3 years ago instore pickup. 308 including tax. I haven't done a thing to it. But i'm going to order the tuneup kit from hd. You get the oem filter,oem spark plug and honda oil for 15.99. I going to slap it on before i pull it out next season.

mower won't start


sorry to get here late. All my old dirt bikes did this same drip fuel problem. There is a little spring that holds the needle onto the seat. You can tip all you want. I would of tried a shot of carb cleaner through the fuel line. People really do not fix cheaper mowers anymore. Just go ahead and buy new. Glad you got your mower running. Just tore a honda mower apart. They are total crap now, all pretty much one piece engines, no valve guides, just machined into the aluminum block. You have to pull the crack to access the valves. They are definitely throw away now

Were your dirt bikes 2-cycle? No oil sump then, right? The tipping I was referring to was when you tip a four cycle engine too far and oil gets up in the valve gallery and back into the carb through the crankcase breather.

I have heard that many of the new Honda motors are Chinese made crap, so I guess you have it right. I was actually amazed to find that the top end of my 1980 SOHC CB650c has the cam riding right on the line bored aluminum castings with no babbits, and that motor is red lined at 11K RPM. Amazing.

Sorry, I went off thread a bit, SO
