Honda G50 Rotavator 30yr old

Recommended Posts

Hi, i have 30yr old honda G50 rotavator & am looking for a fuel tap which has a filter attached for it

It is 187cc engine.The tap on mine will not turn off.

I was wondering if any of the members on here know of anyone breaking similar machine or where i can get parts from.

                                    cheers Stuart

Hi, no I have not seen a tap like that before but a seal kit for the normal tap may fit, you have tried stripping it down and cleaning it out have you ?

Hi, Sten i have had a word with the man i bought the machine off and he said it was bought in 1972 new so it is 44yrs old.He also said that he had trouble with the tap a few years  ago so he took it apart and found that the rubber washer was split so he discarded it and put a fiber washer in its place as a spacer as you can see in the photos.The reason i wanted to sort it out was that it was always flooding,but he told me that it did that regularily and it was the needle valve sticking and if you just gave the carb a tap it would free it.So i am going to clean the needle and put back as is.I have tried several dealers and they all say it is obsolete.P1000491.JPGP1000490.JPGP1000491.JPG

with Honda carbs, two little tricks that I picked up over the years to stop the carb flooding is to take the float needle

out, give it a spray in carb cleaner and then wipe the seat of the needle back and fourth a few times with some coarse

rag, similar to terry nappies material. Also try refitting the carb bowl and tightening it up with the fuel turned on and running

out. Don't know why but particularly the last thing seems to work well?
