 How to Start Honda small engines

Have you checked the fuel shut off lever?

The Hondas have the reputation for being about the easiest starting engine in the world, I guess that is why you gave them a second chance.

Since they are so fast starting, it is very possible to flood them. I have a Honda powered log splitter (8HP GX240), same manual as yours. I also have a Honda Powered power washer.

The only time I have had a porblem is through my own error. I tried to start it with the ignition switch off, this of course led to flooding the engine. And many pulls, and fiddling with what throttle setting would give it enough air.

Since I have been paying attention better, I have had zero issues.

Too bad you seem to have the atypical case.

Dennis

Ken,

I don't remember if you posted this as to how you got this splitter, I know you were looking at I think a used Swisher awhile back.

Is this a new machine or a used one that has the problem?
