Bearcat chipper with Honda GX670

Recommended Posts

More specifically, part 30/31 on here. The high jets. I would take the bowl off, check it for garbage and then check those jets to see if one is blocked. Worth a shot for no outlay

Hi @Paddy1000111 & @Wonky really appreciate your replies. I have swapped out the plugs and filter already to rule them out. I have had the carb apart but will check that again just to be 100%, I need to check the inlet arrangement as well to see how fuel is drawn into each cylinder. Looking at the coils, it does say they are handed but I am wondering if that is just down to the length of the leads? If they are not sealed then I may swap the coils around. Will also check the air gaps too.

Thank again for you support and appreciate the time you have take to pull out assembly drawings etc.

Hi @paddy1000111 & @wonky if we ever cross paths, I owe you both a pint. Striped the carb back down, nothing obvious but blew it all out. No sign of blockages or debris but built it back up. She started much better and back to firing on two cylinders again. Really appreciate you taking the time to offer advice.

Cheers, Phill.

@stubby nothing worse than reading a thread to get to the end and find there is no feedback if the issue was resolved. I have wasted a lot of time due to that.

It does sound as if a carb jet was slightly blocked, ie old fuel & varnish deposits in the fuel aspirator.  Which could of been dislodged while being dismantled.

 

live found the worst culprits to fix are the B&S carbs that are intergrated with the fuel tank. Thus the whole darn carb and tank has to come off and apart just to get at the main jet.😩 

 

anyhow thanks for the feed back about its now working as it should, it’s very good of you to this. As it will help others in the future 😉👍
