Small engine repair

My power washer (Honda engine) would start but couldn't maintain speed unless the throttle was only half-way and the choke was on. I am leaning toward the carb.

Are there any good online tutorials for small engine repair?
Also, what are some good websites for buying small engine parts?

I had the same problem on my Honda powered air compressor once. Turns out the problem was the spark plug. The old one showed spark when removed & grounded to the block, but under pressure when installed it wasn't half firing. 1 new plug and the problem disappeared.

After a new plug (good suggestion) I'd just take it down to my local lawnmower shop. They have a lot of Honda experience.
