My honda gx200 generator has stopped working. I have checked oil, replaced the plug and checked the bulb for fuel flow. Should I dismantle tthe carb and see if blocked or can you suggest another likely problem.

Hi,my name is mike and I will assist you with your question.
From what you have already checked the issue really has to be with the carb being restricted or the valve inside not letting the fuel through. Yes the next step would be to remove the carb and check the valve is opening and closing properly abc clean the carb really well and this should solve the issue.
