Unless the wiring has been hacked the "LO" wire is the Bl / Y (Blue with Yellow stripe) and that goes to the fuel cut solenoid on the engine.

 

I mistakenly said Blue with Yellow stripe. It should be Black with Yellow stripe. on the LO terminal.

all is well with the honda so long as it is not running at WOT. i ran it at WOT for 5-10 minutes and let the pipes get cherry red then without touching the throttle i shut it down. took the plugs out and they looked fine to me. i also brought them to my local small engine repair shop and he concurred that it is not running lean if anything one bank was just a tad rich otherwise normal. so back in went the plugs and plowed for an hour or two at about less than 3/4 throttle and it plowed the heavy snow with no problems and didn't even turn the pipe red.

  next test will be putting the 2-stage blower in the front and see how well the pto set-up works. not sure but i might get new belts and see if i might have to raise the engine a tad to take up some slack.

 

WOT with no load would cause those pipes to get pretty darn hot. A load would slow down the motor a bit, thus not firing the plugs quite as fast.
