1979 Honda Express

My 1978 Honda Express will only crank if I remove the entire air breather box and will shut off if I try to run it attached. It cranks right up and runs if I have no air filter box on it. I have changed the foam with the correct Honda part. What are my options? Thanks in advance

Re: 1979 Honda Express

Runs fine otherwise? Try a thin filter, like another guy is running a layer of pantyhose. You need something there. You sure the choke or enrichener isn't partially on? (edited)

Clean the carb, Take all the way down to clean.

Consider exhaust clogged as a possibility.
