I have a Honda IZY type HRG 415C2 SDE which has developed a very bad hunting. Engine
is constantly going up/down in speed. Can't see any problem with shaft from governor to carburetter nor of the fine spring on the coupling shaft from governor to carb. The engine starts easily, first time over compression every time. Any ideas or suggestions??

Your problem is withiin your carburetor, Rod. You need to do a really good cleaning on it and get the jets spotless. I am not familiar with the UK model numbers so I am going to send you two different links on cleaning honda carburetors. 99% of honda carburetors are very similiar if not the same (just larger on larger engines). Once clean your engine should run like new
