Hello, folks. I'm the.very.
lucky owner of not ONE but TWO.wonderful. Honda GCV 160 powered devices, and both of them are a dream come true. Sarcasm Does anyone know where I can get a repair manual for this engine?
Repairing a Honda lawn mower? This video demonstrates the proper and safe way to disassemble a lawn mower and how to access parts that may need to be tested.
The 160 on my lawnmower refuses to run correctly. It will run fine for a few minutes from cold, but it starts to cough, sputter, backfire then die. I can run it for 30 seconds before it dies again.

I've checked the carb and it's fine. Nothing plugged, fresh gas; no varnish. My next guess is to check the timing, and I've got a good handle on how to approach that from reading posts on this forum. Is there anything else I can check, such as ignition? Thanks for all your help. I'm moving in two months and would rather try to get as much life out of this mower before I leave. I agree with 30YT that it's probably a fuel problem as opposed to ignition.
The timing would not change on a running motor. It's typically either good or bad and the things that would cause it to change on a running motor are all pretty unlikely scenarios. I have seen magnetos(ignition modules) be intermittent and the best way to check that is with a gap type tester that you leave in series with the plug and watch the spark with the engine running. When the engine begins to shut down, if the spark is going away, that's a good indicator it is the cause of the shutdown. If it isn't, I'd make the leap of faith that the ignition is probably OK and your problem is elsewhere(most likely fuel delivery). In addition to inspecting and cleaning the carb, have you tried loosening the gas cap and running it. If the vent is plugged in the cap it will run for some period of time till the bowl is empty and then stop.
Restarting can be difficult. Finally, regarding the manual. You can get them from HelmInc.com.
Honda distributes their manuals through them. Here is the link for your manual. (I haven't seen these on line anywhere for free) Let us know how you make out. Hi all, I'm a new member from Orange County, California, USA. I need some hints for the GCV160. Mine won't start - it stopped in mid-operation. Thought the kill switch went bad but it's OK.
Changed spark plug, replaced gas. Still no start. It might be bad gas - I have never stabilized the gas, but didn't worry about it since I use it every week normally, and there is no off-season in this part of the country. I guess I need to get into the carb, etc, but would like to look at a repair manual first so I don't mess something up. I like to repair things, but would like to know the tricks.
Appreciate any help. First thing to know is that I know almost nothing about small engines. I hit a baseball while cutting the grass. The engine stalled. I started it up again, but pulling the cord was hard.
After starting, a puff of white smoke came out of the exhaust. I lifted the mower up and saw that the two blades were locked together.
That wasn't how they were when I looked before. The two blades run separately, right? Do they turn in the same direction or counter each other?
Have I destroyed the gears? Should I try in dislodge the two blades from each other? First thing to know is that I know almost nothing about small engines. I hit a baseball while cutting the grass.

Should I try in dislodge the two blades from each other?Unless you can tell that one of the blades is bent, then they are mounted together and turn together in the same direction. They do not turn independently from each other, nor in opposite directions. This is a mulching setup that Honda uses. Hitting the baseball may have sheared the flywheel key that times the ignition spark, but it's unusual on a Honda as their key's are steel.
If your mower starts up and runs alright, then the oil may have come from when you tipped the mower over to look at the blades. If you tipped the mower over with the air filter facing down, you may have contaminated the air filter with oil. If there is oil in the air filter element, you will need to replace the air filter element as they cannot be cleaned.
