TB240 Honda engine loses power

422 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  joecaption
When starting mower, and engaging drive cable, the engine bogs down and almost stall. The mower starts fine, but loses power. I have replaced drive cable last year when it snapped. I replaced belt,spark plug. Still not running like it should. Last year, one of the last times I used it, it seemed to surge and this is how it runs. Should carburetor be taken apart and cleaned? Is there a throttle cable or something that could have snapped? Any thoughts?

I'd just order a new carb. not try and rebuild.
I just ordered an OEM one on Ebay that came with new fuel lines, spark plug, air filter, free shipping for far less then $20.00.
If you left fuel in the tank last year and did not run it out of fuel before storing that was your first big mistake.
