Question about Northstar Garden
I have a bored North Star pressure washer with a Honda GC 190 motor and a Comet GXD 2627 pump. It appears that oil is leak out around the cap with the yellow top at the top of the pump. Do I need to add oil? If so how much and what type? How do I stop the leak?
Thanks for a quick reply.
I have a follow up question: where is the drain plug on this pump? I can't find one at all.

The oil in the pump is probably leaking because a seal is blown and water is getting into the piston housing. Take a look inside at the oil. It should be brown and translucent. If it is gray, white or milky, you have a blown oil seal. This reservoir should only be 1/3 full of non-detergent oil to begin with. Hope this helps
