Question about Garden

1 Answer

I have a Troy Bilt pressure washer with a pin-hole leak where the manifold attachs to the pump unit. Can I just back-off the fasteners, scrape the old gasket off and replace with liquid automotive gasket maker, rather than replace the entire pump unit?

Most likely the piston seals are leaking This is a good thing as since it leaks out it is keeping the water from entering the drive mechanism. If you can find the PUMP brand and model you can get parts fromm a place like www.pressure-washer-parts.com . The parts are inexpensive for just the seals before you ruin the complete pump.When replacing thee seals, you might as well replace the pump packing too since they wear. If you cannot find the pump numbers, then get the Troy Bilt model number and check their web site for parts. http://www.troybilt-gen-pw.com/pressure_washers/ They have parts listed there but i think they only list the complete pump not pump repair parts.

All outflow stops when I start the motor on my Troy-bilt 2600 pressure washer. What's up?


Could also be crack/leak in HP pump. If it were left in cold weather without antifreeze, I'd check there first. Part + labor might warrant new washer if more than a couple years old.
Sorry.

Pressure Washer Troy Bilt 2700 PSI 2.3 GPM will not pick up soap. I am using the black tip low pressure head and it still does not pick up the detergent. Any recommendations?


Take the small soap line off and make sure you can blow air through. Where the line attaches to the soap container make sure the hole is clear if not take a streight pin and make sure the pin goes in the hole easily.

inlet valve connected to water inlet is stopped-up. Unscrew it, take a safety pin run through valve then take the pin and push through valve connected to pump. should do the trick. (the valve the suction hose for the soap is connect to)
