Honda 50

8 posts in this topic

Had my 2000, 50hp Honda in today to trade and they did some testing on it. They came up with 2 cylinders with 135# compression and the 3rd with 100, also did a bleed down and said the 3rd dropped to either 80% or loss 80% didn't hear him for sure.Anyone out there know worst case $$$ that would be to fix. They went on to say maybe head gasket, or valve, or piston, wouldn't know without a tear down. I didn't get into any prices with them I thought I would get some other opinions first. Still runs good. Any ideas?

Well I would take it to another shop for a second or a third diagnosis. Why did they test it in the first place if it was running good ?

I was trading it in on a new motor so they said they would run some tests for condition for trade in valve.

Hopefully the % leak was 20% and not 80%, otherwise you've got some issues with that cylinder.

I'd take it to another shop for a second opinion as well.

I am not implying they are, but I think it looks shady to me when major defects are found on a trade in, unless they are obvious.

I would definitely try another shop or independent mechanic.

When I traded my motor in for a new one they ran a compression test on it also. I took it to 2 other shops and they did the same, and it came out the same,it was OK

    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.  
    • I'm still trying to figure out why we pushed the coup in Ukraine, other than to cause trouble of course.
    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
