Having problems with your Honda Pressure Washer PSI 3000 ?

My pull cord broke on my honda p.w. and replace and had bad pump

\015 So now I am trying to find a pump for my md.xr-2600 gc160 honda pw. and am not having much luck because honda dose not carry the pump. I have been told it might need to be replaced with a karcher pump. but have not found anybody that can confirm this .. when your pump frezzes up it gets very hard for the pull cord to work so it breaks and is usally caused by a bad pump???????\015

Answers :

Before you trash the pump, try this. Get a very good flush through the entire system from faucet to trigger. Let it run for say, 5 minutes. Make sure that there are no high spots in the hose supply line where air can be trapped. Once done, start the engine, but this time with the trigger depressed on the spray nozzle. This acts like an unloader, and makes it much easier to start, as there is no back pressure. I had a P/W that I had to crank that way. It worked for me. I have a new one now, and I still crank it the very same way. One last tip: If you need to shut down the machine, say, for a pit stop or lunch, leave the trigger depressed with the engine off. It allows the pump to cool, and makes re-starting much easier.

My Honda 2600 psi power washer will not pull to start. It was running great then I allowed the neighbor to borrow it. He ran the washer till it was out of gas and proceeded to refuel and at this point it would no longer start.

If i take the casing off are there any spring loaded parts that will dismount? What should I do? Spark Plug? Turn
