Rebuilding a carb Honda forman 400

2 posts in this topic

My engine has been stalling a bit. When I give it gas. It idles fine and starts great. But when I give it gas it looses power and kills. It happened on Sunday as I was driving around my yard. I know the previous owner stored it long periods of time only using for hunting. So I suspect the carb just needs a good cleaning and or rebuilding. Anyone else do this to their hondas What do you think the problem is?

It sounds like your high speed jet is clogged. I would rip it apart and give it a good cleaning. Make sure you blow that jet out with compressed air. It is probably varnished up as you will see. A kit probably comes with one gasket, a few o rings and a new float bowl(probably not needed). For forty dollars I would not buy the kit unless the gaskets are destroyed or you can visually see the float bowl is cracked. Put it all back together and it will probably run fine. I have rebuilt many carbs and have had good luck soaking everything in sea foam. Follow the factory specs for setting the float and the air screw.
