Re: Honda 2hp 4-stroke

Forgot this, make sure to drain the carb before starting. I had the same motor, mine had an in line filter inside the fuel line where it comes out of the tank, very fine mesh, don't know if it will pass water and you can't see the filter from the outside. Suggest you use an additive/stabilizer in the new fuel. As mentioned above the electrics are the weak link. If you can't get it to run perfectly you might want to take them out and replace them. A shop may be able to test them for you?
