    Honda HR 214 trouble starting need to have blade lever engaged to start

    The 'driven' disk? Huh. That's like the flywheel plate, not the clutch, going out. Odd. Nevertheless, glad you got 'er fixed and running again!

    28 yr old Honda HR215, do the new ones mulch better???

    mzbb-6091227 sxa As far as speed goes, I do have a tach and I'll check rpm. I run the throttle IN the detent between the choke and fast positions to maximize speed. It doesn't seem to make a difference. I note that the manual does not mention a throttle adjustment, as I've seen it. The...

    Thanks! Just for giggles, what would be the determining factor between which of those three I would get? The local guy seemed to figure it out when I told him I had the big knob choke lever on the back of the unit.

    It's a Walbro, eh? It has 'Stihl' embossed on the diaphragm cover. I may have a closer source, in that case!

    Honda HR 214 trouble starting need to have blade lever engaged to start

    Hi: Sorry for the late reply. I guess our real resident experts are unavailable, so let the third-string give it a try: Perhaps the clutch bearing is seizing up. When the blade is disengaged, the motor is allowed to spin thanks to this bearing. If it has ceased to function, the motor is forced...

    28 yr old Honda HR215, do the new ones mulch better???

    If I put a new Honda blade on it, should I have to sharpen it, as well? Mind you, I have kept my blade sharp. By hand, with a file. I mow in first gear. I went out of my way today to assure I was only taking 1/3 off at the most and the grass was dry. And the blade appears to be in good shape...

    Honda Quadra Cut for Wet Grass?

    I'm serious! I used a snow shovel to slurp it up into a 5 gallon bucket. Filled the bucket the rest of the way up with water. It looked just like a health drink smoothie. Spread on bare spots. I'll have to clean under the deck more often. The plastic deck did wash up spic and span with water...

    Honda Quadra Cut for Wet Grass?

    Do not use a Honda on wet grass. You end up with a sludge resembling a health drink or finely ground cole slaw under the deck. Wash it out from your deck and it makes great 'liquid grass' to spread on bare spots.

    28 yr old Honda HR215, do the new ones mulch better???

    I'm just about fed up with the uneven cut my 215 has developed. It leaves a line of grass uncut on every pass. A thin line, not very wide at all, but it's obvious as all get out. I'm going to rebuild a cub cadet now and see how it does. I'm guessing it has something to do with the engineering of...

    Welcome to the Stihl Forum -- Check in Here First!

    So the source of the leak was a cracked diaphragm. It takes so long to get parts mail-order, I have started to search out locals for my parts. A local has the rtebuild kit for the same price online, but I have to drive 50 miles round trip to get it! But, when I get home, I have it, so that...

    Stihl Weedeater Dying

    If the clutch is your issue, wouldn't it be 'bound up' if that what was causing the engine to stop? Be sure it spins freely after the motor has died. If it doesn't spin freely, there is your problem. Now that you've ruled out what sounded like a classic vent problem, try what hammer or bert...

    Welcome to the Forum! Sounds like you've got a real head-scratcher there. Luckily, it just so happens we have a couple Honda Experts here on site who have to deal with issues like that daily. Hopefully, they'll be by today and fix you up. But again, Welcome to LawnWorld!

    Your favorite, most dependable tachometer

    I am now using an app called 'Engine RPM' by RealTime Specialties. It works great with repeatable results. I'll pick up a vibra tach if I see one cheap. It still looks interesting

    Are they late-night posts? That might account for some.

    Ah, someone knows what the hole is for. Give the man a charute! Or send me $5 and I'll send you a pair, binds and all.

    Honda HR214 GXV 120 - What goes in that hole?

    My goodness, what a lousy-looking casting! It appears to be loaded with cracks! But I've no idea about the hole.
