I Have a honda gx390 13 hp engine on my hydroseeder. It is getting more and more difficult to turn over when I start it and it doesnt seem to have as much power as it used to. It did get a little low on oil but it never triggered the low oil shut off. It probably has about 400 hrs on it and it doesnt smoke. Iam concerned that one day while on a job it will quit working. Does it need to be rebuilt? Could running it low on oil cause it to become stiff? I suppose I should check the hydroseeder pump and make sure it turns over freely. I have put about 15 hrs on it since I noticed it getting stiff.
Thanks for any advice.
