to check air leak, correct me if wrong, you spray carb cleaner around where the carb connects to engine and where it connects to shroud. if the engine changes speed you may need a new gasket or that part between carb and shroud. ( dementia is not letting me remember name )

I always keep a large towel and fire extinguisher around when working to cover/douse any fire outbreak. it happened once. or it will happen if not prepared ; some kind of law of the universe.
So no luck with the gas tank vent. I even let it run with the lid off the tank and no change. I’m definitely not getting enough gas and I am getting good flow through the gas line to the carburetor so it has to be a carburetor issue. I’m wondering if I should just buy a new carb or maybe I should buy some new gaskets first. Also, take a look at the two attached photos. First is of the assembly. Want to make sure it’s assembled right (I took off the air shrouds). Second, is there supposed to be a spring from the choke control handle to the bracket for the choke? You can see from the pictures that there is a hole in the choke handle and a second hole in the bracket for the choke. Is something supposed to be there?

you don't have a choke cable? I guess that's okay. just move that lever with hand.

PROBLEM SOLVED!

Real quick, yes I do have a choke cable, I just removed it since I was in the middle of taking the carburetor off.

The problem was the pilot jet. I did a random google search and discovered another post on another site where a guy was having problems with his 1132 surging. Someone came back with a diagram of the pilot jet which showed a small hole right at the base of it.

I took mine apart right after I saw the diagram and could not see a hole in my pilot jet. I poked the bottom with one wire from a brass wire brush and the tiniest speck of debris came right out. Put it back together and now I’m running full closed choke at idle and full throttle and it’s running beautifully!

I have to thank you all for the responses and I do apologize if someone here told me about the small hole in the pilot jet. I’ve been reading through a lot of posts so I may have missed that if someone posted it. I’ve attached the diagram so if anyone has this issue in the future, they can read through this and find the solution to the problem.

Here’s a video of it running now with a fully opened choke at low and high idle.

Next things to do is remove the augers and repaint the impeller housing and the inside of the chute. I’ve already removed the pins connecting the augers to the auger gear box shaft and made sure they spin freely and aren’t frozen onto the shaft. I know removing the augers is a very simple process. Is removing the impeller simple as well? It would make paintings much easier if it was removed

easy to take augers and impeller out as long as impeller is not stuck on pulley shaft. you have to remove impeller shear bolt then all bolts on both sides of bucket and the the 2 bolts that attach the auger tranny to support bracket attached to bucket.

I knew someone must have mentioned it. Sorry I missed that! But thank you for all the help it’s truly appreciated. Wow, that is one of the worst carburetors I’ve ever seen. Thing must have been sitting outside with ethanol fuel in the bowl.

And thanks for the tips on the auger and impeller removal. Paint is not as pressing as the engine so now I can take my time with this. I planned on using steel wool to clean up the auger blade shafts and then applying some water resistant grease to them before putting it all back together.

Will that carb get cleaned enough from the ultrasonic to be able to use it, or will you have to replace it ?

i'm gonna try for the fun of it. it's a fine rust throughout. not deep and seems like no corrosion.

I have nothing but time and enjoy experimenting.

Good to know you found the problem. That is very common on those carbs with the slow jet clogging.
Be careful when you run a wire up thru it, it is plastic and you can ream out the pin hole easy if you are not careful.
You got to work on a Honda engine, those are the easiest carbs to repair out of all the different manufacturers, so you got good experience with it now.
Welcome to the Honda club, keep it maintained and you will enjoy it for years to come with the reliability and ease of repairs on them.
They don't break down as often as other company's machines. They are easier to operate and very reliable machines when taken care of, and they can handle the tough jobs.
