Never, ever, ever did I think I would even consider owning a Honda.. but like a kid in a candy store, I couldn't help but thing of the old beat-up HR sitting in the local scrapyard. Picked it up today. It's an HR-214-GM. Got it with the bag, discharge chute, and also another Honda bag and chute for 5.00 The carb had gunk up to the rim of the bowl. Scraped it out, just blew some air through the carb.. came right to life! What could be wrong with it, then? Surely the clutch is shot.. I push the handle, and the blade starts immediately! Gearbox then? Squeeze the handle.. takes off. It needs a shifter cable and tires, but I mowed my back yard and I am impressed. It hasn't got the charm of an old Toro or LB, but dang it's rugged. One hole, between the chute and transmission cover. Quiet too. Drive is slipping and I haven't gotten second to work.. but it only burnt a cap-full of gas in that time I ran it. No smoke that seemed noticeable, and I was running leftover 2 stroke..:sorry: So, I'm new to these in particular. What should I do to it? Obviously check oil in the transmission and engine, general engine service.. but is there anything to do to the clutch or tranny, or drive shaft maybe? I'm a maintenance nut and don't want to mess something up.
