In this blog we will walk you through how to clean and replace the carburetor on a Honda GX160 engine. If the engine won't start or isn't running smoothly, the carb might be the first thing to look at. Follow these steps:
Take off the air filter using a 10mm wrench or socket.
Unhook the gas line and throttle levers. Then remove the plastic housing cover.
Remove the carburetor once all other pieces are removed.
Either clean the carburetor in an ultrasonic cleaner or replace the carburetor with a new one.
Insert the new or cleaned carburetor into place and slide the gasket into the carburetor.
Slide back into place the outside housing and screw the bolt securely.
Place the air filter back on and screw the nut. Then place the housing and secure with final nut back into place securely.
