I think " from what I understand" they were very pricey and rather complicated to work on. What little research I have done seem's that they were not big sellers for what ever reason. I know parts are rather limited and pricey.


Sounds like the Yamaha tractor, parts hard to get and pricey.  They only made them for 3 years.

Dad's old neighbor had a honda tractor. Dad had to interview him about it. I remember his words were something like "it's a great tractor when it runs"

His had cooling problems I believe and he replaced gaskets frequently

That engine alone, is worth 4X what you paid for the whole thing.  They are GREAT little engines and have a 2500-3000 hour service life.


It is most likely the safety/security module, as previously noted BUT, check ALL the safety switches and their associated grounds.  Clean them all up real  well, a little dielectric grease applied, and put them back together.  Honda electronic ignitions are VERY dependable.  Not likely the ignition module, itself.  I run them on all the old bikes I restore as they are nearly bomb-proof.


Great looking little machine and they were very well built.  If you are lucky, it will have the cast iron spindles.  If not, and they are cast aluminum, just be sure to not run over sticks larger than 3/4"...   :thumbs:
