I just answered that question on another thread... will repeat:

Oil used in engine is SAE30, I would suggest adding bit of Nulon or similiar Teflon based before even first run as it will extend life of the engine, This is air cooled Honda and therefore overheat easy.

Oil used in pump is Universal Tractor Transmission Oil.

Except two, all pumps are equiped with sight glass, fill as indicated on sight glass or dipstick.

To extend life of your equipment, change oil in both, engine and pump after 50hrs.

If you live in colder climates, where freezing is possible, do not forget to drain pump and high pressure hose from water to avoid winter damage.

Hope this will help keep your equipment in top notch for years to come:-)

What kind of oil replaced the Harley Davidson type "c" oil fork ina SS Sprint 350cc?


Fork oil is the same as hydraulic pump oil. Depending on your preference choose a light weight oil, 5-15 will give a soft ride. As the weight numbers go up the comfort level goes down. However, the heavier weight oil provides better handling. A bit of experimentation will varying weights should be considered for the optimal combination of ride comfort and handling. One final note. Always. Purchase a non-detergent oil

THATS A HONDA ENGINE , SO IT TAKES Honda 08207?10W30 IN THE ENGINE AND STRAIGHT 30 WT NON DETERGENT IN THE PUMP OR YOU CAN BUY IT RIGHT FROM NORTHERN PUMPS SUPPLY AS WELL
ALLWAYS CK PUMP OIL WHEN FILLING GAS TANK AS SOME MINOR OIL LOSS IS NORMAL ON USED PUMPS AND IF OIL BECOMES WHITE LIKE MILK THEN IT NEEDS REPLACED RIGHT AWAY (WATER CONTAMINATION ) IF OIL USE GOES OVER 1 QT FOR EVERY 12 HRS OF USE THEN PUMP NEEDS REBUILT

ALTHOUGH MY DIPSTICK READS FINE, WHENEVER I PUSH ON THE BRAKES, MY OIL PRESSURE GOES DOWN TO 0 AND MY CHECK GAUSES LIGHT COMES ON


I would say that you are definitely low on oil pressure. The oil pump is usually located inside of the oil pan. Depending on what vehicle you have you might have to have the engine removed to access the oil pan to get to the oil pump. I know on a Cadillac Northstar engine you get 43 hours to do an oil pump.

My 1997 cadillac deville, northstar w/85, regular oil changes, burns almost 2 quarts of oil every change. It is not leaking.


If your car is losing oil, and if there is no evidence of oil leaking, there is no question that it is either losing it through piston rings or through the head (head gasket or valve guides).
Best thing to do is use a HEAVIER WEIGHT oil than specified for the vehicle when new, regularly monitor your oil level and be sure it never falls below one quart low, and consider having the engine overhauled when you start noticing a performance deficit or hear mechanical noise (such as rod knock) from the engine.

Foaming in pump oil window


I dont know which comet pump you have, but it is just easier to get a new pump from one of the pressure washer companies on the internet and they sell them on ebay. You can also probably get a better pump that will fit your engine as well. Also, have you tried just changing the oil and not fill it too full? On my 5000 lb washer, if i fill the oil too high when I change the oil, it will foam some. Hope this helps you, Rick
