Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly
It took a bit of research but I think I found the parts list here:
There WAS a kit for this pump that the part number is B4182 and is no longer available. ( http://www.ppe-pressure-washer-parts.com/horizontal-replacement-pumps
The pump parts list you should be looking at is 020303-2
There are oil seal and water seal kits here: (Half way down the page)
You said you got a milky color then lost pressure. Until you tear it down you will not know if it is the water seals or the oil seals you need. Personally.... I was going to repair it for you I would install both sets of seals. What will be frustrating about the repair process is you usually do not get it going again on the first try. You will end up ordering other o-rings to complete the repair. If you get it by the 3rd attempt your doing great!
What may have caused this problem a lack of water supply due to a restriction somewhere. If for example there is an inlet screen to the pump and the supply line was mostly blocked the pump will cause a vacuum and draw the seals inward into the pump. ( I think this is what happened to your pump) Just make sure to check for any inlet strainers or screens. Who knows you might get lucky and just have to clean the screen / strainer.

Hi. I think the problem may be called either vapor lock or cavitation, or it could be called something else, but the solution is to take the wand apart in the center and let the trapped water escape, then putting it back together before re-engaging the lever.
