One thought on “Honda HRX217 Thermowax Choke Actuator Replacement

  1. The wax that seals the Honda hrx217 thermowax actuator is degraded. When I pulled the actuator out I noticed pieces of wax etc. Is there a replacement wax ring or something that I can purchase when I install the new actuator? Or how do I go about making sure it seals when pushing the new one back in? Thanks
