Answers :

Check if the carb i is properly seated and screws are not loose , it could be sucking air
Probably the carb's low/mid speed circuits are clogged real bad. The only fix I know if they are as bad as you describe is remove and soak/clean carb, and this may not work as some of the circuits are as fine as as human hair, and the solvent may or may not work. Then it' replacement time.

I have a Husky gasoline pressure washer. The honda motor starts but stalls because the pressure by-pass (not the right term) doesn't seem to open and builds up pressure. I haven't tried to remove any parts yet. I think grit has got in but don't know for sure. The pump looks pretty simple and the part I want to remove for cleaning looks like a plastic hexagon nob. Will this access the by-pass or is it something else.


I think you're right about the knob, but try this:Open the water to the washer. Leave the line open, and hold the trigger down to get all of the air out of the supply and discharge lines. While still holding the trigger down on the spray gun, ... Pressure Washers
