    Re: Backfire when hot only

    Jeff,

    I thought your idea was great and I bought Sea Foam. I let it do its thing and today no backfire. Makes a lot of sense about carbon build up. This mower is about 10 years old and been...

    Re: Backfire when hot only

    It has an auto choke wax cylinder that has never been replaced and there is a TSB on hard starting for this mower. This mower starts in one pull cold or hot except I get one backfire when hot.

    Backfire when hot only

    I have a Honda mower HRR216VKA that starts cold fine and runs fine, but when I shut off and restart a minute later it will backfire and then runs. Any ideas?
  10. Re: HRR2168VKA rear wheels locking up - dealer can't seem to fix

    Bill,

    I lubed my shaft with marine grease that is very sticky. The only thing about grease is that it attracts dirt. I am going to give this a shot, if it does not work I will try a dry lube like...

    I also want to thank this thread. I have had the same problem with rear wheels locking up for several years. I removed the bushing cleaned and greased the bushing and shaft. I put a fish scale and it...
