my Honda has suddenly begun to stall. It starts readily first or second pull but runs for only a second or two max before quickly dying.

My initial thoughts are carburettor needle is stuck? Anyone had the same experience? Is it a job for the expensive outboard repair man? I don't know very much about the internals of the Honda. Give me my old Suzuki back anytime.

Regards
Donald

Certainly check the fuel supply to the carb .... but it should run for longer than "a second or two " on a bowl full of fuel and it should also do that if the float and/ or needle valve is sticking

Hi Donald,
Your problem is either a partially blocked main jet or I suspect in the pilot jet passages, Basically the pilot jet system is a secondary system that works before the throttle opens. You have a blockage where the fuel pick up is between the opening (around the lower emulsion tube main jet area) and the pilot jet itself. I specialise in Honda 2 and 2,3s and this is a common problem.

Hi Steve,thanks for replyingMy Suzuki 2.2 two stroke has 2 brass screws one is for setting slow running the other ,shown in attached photos , is I am led to believe is a pilot jet adjuster.Unfortunatly when I took carb to bits to clean contaminated petriol from it I neglected to count back off. Have you ever come across this? PeterAD83028B-3672-466D-A6F9-F327FCA2CF24.jpeg
