I ran into a bit of trouble with my Honda Harmony Lawnmower this week
that I'm hoping someone can help me with. As part of the
de-winterization process I laid the mower on it's side to
remove/sharpen the blades, after returning the mower upright I noticed
oil pouring from the air cleaner. Uh oh.
Long story short, I can't get this thing running again. Clear gas runs
out of the carb when I loosen the carb drain screw. I've flushed the
cylinder via the sparkplug hole. The only thing that makes a
difference is to replace the sparkplug with a new one, but then the
engine runs very rough and about 1/2 normal speed, and smoke pours from
the exhaust. After a couple minutes the engines chokes again and will
remain dead until I replace the spark plug, again.
I have never had this happen before and am out of ideas. Any help will
be greatly appreciated!
