Question about Honda Pressure Washer PSI 3000
These AXD pumps usually do not require a rebuilding process. What happens is the unloader / bypass valve gets stuck and you do not get any output pressure. What you can do is tip you pressure washer so that the input and output fittings are vertical and actually dump oil into the water supply hole. (3 oz at least) Slowly pull the recoil (ign off) and add a bit more oil and let it sit overnight. Then the next day once again pull the recoil through and let it sit another 10 minutes. Then connect all hoses (Purge the air in the garden hose) BEFORE connecting the main water supply and start the unit then running at MAX SPEED rapidly fan the wand trigger. What your doing is cycling the unloader valve. Do not do this for more than 2 minutes if the pressure does not suddenly start. IF the pressure builds continue at lease another 30 rapid cycles of the wand trigger.
I lost count on just how many pressure washers I have brought back to a good working service life by just doing the above. I do know it is a substantial number.
Give this a try before you go off on the need to rebuild the pump avenue.
