I have owned many Honda motors, 4, 5.5, 6.5 and 9 hp.

Not one had a fuel filter.

They have a sediment bowl on the carb, clean that well, all the crap sits there

my guess is youre gonna need a carburetor kit soon .Stay away for places that sell summer grade fuels containing mtbe .Our small engine mechanic read us the riot act about letting summer gradefuels with mtbe and 10-e set in tanks or cans over winter.soon or later its gonna raise hell seats floatvalves and jets.I am definely not a honda small engine .

Sooner, did you say it ran like the choke was on? Do you mean rich misture, like with black smoke coming out the exhaust?
Could be the float is sinking. Sounds like excess fuel is getting to the carb. Float could be hanging up.

Carburetor is gummed up inside, and needs to be cleaned, by taking it apart.
