I have one of them too---- they are a bear to work on--- Honda made them EXTREEMLY hard to get the carb off.---Thats why I only use Kohlers and B & S for important stuff. These 2 hondas I have are just to see how complicated a company can make stuff!-- have the 160 so it will fire but not run---gas tank is nasty and I still have not had time to take it off---another complicated mounting of the tanks on them.
I would say your carb needs to come off, take apart and clean. IF real nasty---I would suggest a re-placement one then it should run.

Sonny, just saw your message. Yes I plan on taking it off and cleaning it when it warms up some. Converting it to battery start too. Getting to old to pull start it.
