How do you replace the honda gc190 decompression mechanism


This is a problem with GC-160 and GC-190 engines on pressure washers, tillers, etc. Once they get some hours on them and as things seat in-wear in, they get to a point you can not pull the start cord. If you remove the spark plug, the engine turns easily. The valves need adjusted. The valves are set .005" to .006" off the seat. This allows enough compression release but the engine runs. I find the valves need adjusted every 25 hours, not the 100 hours Honda states.

I lost my manual ,how to start the pressure washer


Check gas and oil. With water OFF, pull out choke on washer. Pull the start cord until it starts. Let run for about 20 seconds. Push in choke. Turn on water. Bleed wand line. Insert desired tip. You should be good to go now.

White smoke. when it won't start, raw gas comes out of the exhaust GS190 honda Karcher 3000 PSI


Sounds like it's flooded. Close the throttle and open the choke if equipped. Pull it through a few times and then open the throttle a bit.

Pressure washer wont run unless choke is on


I have a Karcher pressure washer w/ a 5hp Honda engine. It only will run while the choke is pulled out and only runs at about half the rpm's. When the choke is pushed in.. it coughs, sputters and shuts off. Can you tell me how to fix this....
