... Pressure Washers

I have a Honda xr2600 power washer. When I tried using it, water was squirting from the top of the gun. I took it apart to find that there are o-rings on top of some kind of washer---looks like a lock washer but it's made of cardboard??? Two of these washers were broken. I can get the o-rings but I can't seem to find the washers. I tried getting the manual for this model on line with no luck. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

I have a Honda GC160 5 horsepower power washer with 2400 psi. When its cold it is easy to start but after it has been running for a while the only way to start it is to have the water shooting out of the wand. Once it is hot and running if i stop the stream of water (release the trigger on the wand) then the machine shuts off. It seems like the only way to keep it running is to constantly have water running through the wand. Please help

He ran the washer till it was out of gas and proceeded to refuel and at this point it would no longer start.
