Re: 86 Honda Spree won't start I've tried everything

Yeah, you need AT minimum 100 on the compression for it to run. 75 is way too low.

Re: 86 Honda Spree won't start I've tried everything

Spray a little brake cleaner down the spark plug shaft and see if she wants to start. The carb bowl is probably empty.

Re: 86 Honda Spree won't start I've tried everything

Checked a bit ago. Saw a guy selling 4 of them on eBay for like $20. I'd sell ya one of mine, but I'm kind of a Spree parts hoarder. Intakes and carbs I have no problem getting rid of, pumps are another story. The thing about running a pump, is it runs linear. Meaning, it put's out "X" amount during...

Mine personally, is if everything is in spec, even down to a simple bolt, it will run. No if's ands or buts.

Re: ‘86 nq50 was running a week ago but now won’t start

Ah, I think we have the problem figured out then, or at least can narrow it down a bit.

You need part # 91304-GB0-910 (#17 in the image)

Re: ‘86 nq50 was running a week ago but now won’t start

There are 2 different sizes for those carb bolts and size does matter, makes me wonder how long that replacement bolt is and if it could be causing an issue.

Re: ‘86 nq50 was running a week ago but now won’t start

So, I can see that the bolt used to fix the carb spacer is different then a normal Spree bolt. That looks somewhat suspect even though it might be fine. Are the O-rings for the spacer in place? Might have an air leak. The bolt on the left looks almost loose (but don't try over tightning it, just ask...

Re: 86 Honda Spree won't start I've tried everything

So a theory I have here about why so much oil is in there, is perhaps the oil ring was worn out, which will in turn, cause excessive oil to drain into the crank case. So the previous guy might have thought the pump failed, which, again, is just a myth. So instead of replacing a 30 year old $3.95 rub...

Re: 86 Honda Spree won't start I've tried everything

Oh, one more thing, manually turn the piston rod till it's at about top dead center before draining to increase the chances of getting the most oil out.

Re: 86 Honda Spree won't start I've tried everything

You don't need a BBK. And if you grind off the gears, there is no going back and you will have to run premix. Again on a stock piston, you'd want to use 40:1. If grinding off gears seems too extreme, see if that pump is turning and not stuck. Meatball outlined a POSSIBILITY that it is stuck because ...

:lol: :lol: We know, we're just messin with ya!! :lol: :lol: But anyways, turn the carb 2 & 1/2 turns out as your starting point. When you say oil was drained out and replaced, did you bleed the line? Very important. When you say "LOOSE CARB HOUSING FIXED" this kind of catches my attention. Could yo...

The main identifier that most people would see is the 85 had no Kickstart while the 86 did. If you know that relevant information that would narrow it down to an exact
