Re: Service Manual for Greyhound Engine from Harbor Freight
In the beginning, They cloned the 5.5hp "Gx-160"..then moved onto the197cc GX-200...and now today have cloend the 11 and 13hp models...GX-340 and GX-390.
However, due to a lawsuit that was won by HONDA, new clones cannot be.."clones"...they have to have something architecturally and physically obviously different from a Genuine Honda to be legally sold.
Im not sure I understand the need for a manual though...
Oil is the same SAE30 as other engines, plug is the same NGK BPR6ES or Champion RC12YC, Valve lash is 0.005" cold, oil is filled to the full mark, has a low oil sensor, choke it, fuel on, switch on, pull rope...
The service manual/owners manual is probably a page or 2 long, with a good amount of that being warning like...do not run without oil, muffler is HOT, do not pull rope with teeth.
Literally, these things are cheap and simple, unbox, add oil, run it til it wont run anymore, rmeove, and install another. Probably why the manuals are scarce.
The problem at hand here is, a new chemical on the market...mechanic in a can or something, was added in large quantities to the fuel, allowed to sit over the winter and spring, and now it wont run off choke. The problem is a gummed up carb, too much chemical, and old gas. The service manual wont cover this problem, the manual will simply say to "see a professional for repair".
