    As required by the rules I'm making this my first post, just saying hello and giving people an idea who I am.
    I may be new here but not new to bulletin boards.
    I'm not really into motorized bicycles, but have a good background with the Honda mini fourstrokes. GX31 and GX35 in particular and been in precision machining for over 25 years..

    I'm Old. You can call me Bob mostly because its my name.:grin5:

    a motorized bicycle may be coming your way ?

    question for old bob

    It looks like you have expertise in small Honda engines. My new GX 35 runs great (second tankful) but dies out at full throttle after a few minutes. None of the local shops have any ideas for me except to change the carburetor jets as there are no carburetor adjustments. Any ideas? Thanks for your help.

    Is Vent to bowl plugged? sounds like you are draining fuel bowl on carb and it not filling as you delete (Starving out)
