Yes, this kit will work on your HRX217TDA. I was able to check a copy of the service manual for your mower to confirm it.

I have a Husqvarna HU800AWD. The manual recommends NGK BPR6ES, however the plug that came with my mower was a BPR5ES.

Both those plugs will fit the Honda GCV190 engine. The "5" is the standard plug when this engine is fitted to a lawn mower. The "6" would work, but is a cooler plug, and isn't recommended for this engine when used on a lawn mower.

Now I work for Honda, so the Husqvarna team might have a different answer. You may wish to contact Husqvarna's Customer Service and confirm the NGK BPR5ES plug is approved by them for this mower.

Question

Will this tune up kit work in a Harmony II HRZ216?

I have a Harmony II HRZ216 Honda mower. When I checked the part numbers in my manual the fiter / plug are listed as Air filter: 17211-ZL8-000 and Spark plug: 98079-56846 (NGK: BPR6ES). This is different than what is listed on your site for this product (Honda Tune Up Kit for GC/GCV Engines, Model # 670365-TUK929 / Internet # 204144337) . However, I know my engine is a GCV160.

Any help would be appreciated!

Hi Joe:

This kit is indeed fully compatible with all Honda GCV160 Mower Engines, including the one on your HRZ216. It's easy to install the plug and filter, and to change the oil; just follow the procedure in the owner's manual. Hope this helps. -Robert@Honda.

Hi Sam:

No real difference, Sam. SAE 10W-30 is the grade (weight) of oil, and that part of the oil is the same for all brands. It's perfectly fine to use a non-Honda oil in your Honda mower, as long as it is marked SAE 10W-30. Change and fill it according to the owner's manual, and you'll be fine. The brand of oil used does NOT effect the warranty. Finally, when Honda certifies the engine for the EPA, we use regular petroleum oil, so we suggest owner's use it as well. Synthetic oil is fine, and again, no issues if you decide to use it, provided it is 10W-30, and you change/fill as stated in the owner's manual.
