restrorob... I removed the o ring like you said and re-seated it without it. It was originally seated all the way with the o ring on. so ruled that out. I'm really at a loss might just think its best to toss a new carb on it? I think some internal passage in the carb is gummed up? Are there any internal passages drilled in the carb body that can be clogged??

There are internal passages, I don't know how you are cleaning but...... A can of Walmart "SuperTech" brand carb & choke cleaner with the little straw shot through ALL ports and passages watching for it to exit other ports/passages followed with compressed air should yield a clean open carb.....

I say "SuperTech" because I KNOW it will cut varnish and dissolve gum unlike Gumout and some other brands that are nothing more than mineral spirits in a spray can (JUNK)......


Short of buying a new carb, Since it idles fine I'd buy a set of JET DRILLS and drill the main one size larger and see how it does. I've had to do this on a few brand new Honda clone engines after a new carb didn't solve the high speed surge.....

Are you sure the fuel solenoid is working ok? I'm not familiar with that particular carb, but I had a case where the nylon? tip that was molded/pressed on the sol. pintle was loose on the pintle. The unit ran fine at low-mid speed, but would act up intermittently at high speeds. I had cleaned the carb, etc. and checked the operation of the solenoid, pintle was free, no gunk buildup. The only way I discovered it was when I blew solvent/ air into the solenoid to clean around the pintle, I saw the tip move. It never came completely off, just moved up a bit. Apparently the fuel flow at speed was enough to dislodge the tip and restrict/ shut off the fuel!
Anyways, check the solenoid and passages!

If the carburetor still doesn't work correctly, you may have to take it to someone who has an "Ultra-sonic" cleaning machine. This machine uses carb cleaner and ultrasonic vibrations to get the very small passageways clean when traditional methods fail.

I should add : You can usually hold the solenoid pintle in the retracted position by jamming a toothpick in it. Or remove the sol. and use a metric bolt to plug the carb.

On some items Honda buys parts from two different vendors, That's why you will see two different parts/numbers for the same application. Either part will work, If you notice they appear to have dropped one vendor and both now have the same part number......
