Having problems with your Homelite Pressure Washers ?

How does one adjust the spring-loaded pressure regulator (?) on a Homelite 308653045 pressure pump. Can it be over-adjusted or under-adjusted, resulting in a breakdown?

\015 Just bought a new pump. I am assuming that I am referring to a pressure regulator on the 308653045. There was no manual with the pump and I have no idea if the regulator (if it is a pressure regulator) is now set at the max or the min pressure AND if a breakdown will occur if the pumpt is over adjusted . . . either way..\015

The Hom Model No. 308653045 gas-operated cold-water pressure washer has a spring-loaded control on it and I am assuming that this control regulates the output pressure of the water from the pump . . . for example, 1500 psi to 2700 psi. Is it correct to assume that this control regulates the output pressure of the pump. If the control is a pressure regulator, how does one use it and, EVEN MORE IMPORTANT, can one under-adjust or over-adjust the control to a point where THE CONTROL OR THE PUM

I have a G2500VH pressure washer that has started to pulse when the trigger is squeezed. This happens if I use the 0,25, and 40 degree nozzles BUT if I use the one for low pressure(detergent use) it will hold pressure fine. I have changed the unloader valve, checked all the valves and seals ad they seem to be fine. What could be the problem?

I have a 4,000 psi, 4.5 gpm 45G cat pump powered by a 13 hp honda engine I can not seem to be able to adjust the unloader valve to give me pressure over 950 psi and even at lower pressures, the pump will not deliver consistant pressure without bouncing off to the relief stage and back into the tank Are unloader valves worth repairing, or should i look at just buying a new one my current thought is to buy an EZ start Pulsar

I recently replaced the water seals, V-packing & all six check valves in a CW-3504-4MGH pump on a MiTM 3504 pressure washer that had very low pressure. Usually this would fix most pressure problems on most machines, but in this case it had little to no effect. I suspect that the unloaded is the culprit in this case, but since I have had little experience in repairing unloaders (let alone adjusting them). I would appreciate feedback from anyone that has experience in this area. Thanks
