I also have a Honda powered pressure washer that i have experienced the same issues with, I have found that if you pull the wand handle on & let water come out as you are trying to start it it pulls considerably easier.

How to remove pump from a powerboss 020309 power washer


Remove the 4 mounting bolts and it will slide of the shaft if it's not rusted. If it's a little rusty it will take time and some good rust buster applied between the pump and engine onto the engine output shaft. Hope this helps, it's not always the easiest thing to do.

Pressure washer hard to pull string


Unless your unit is equipped with an easy start feature...and I think these are not, it is not usual to have to pull the trigger on the water gun to start one of these units. Also...if there is any chance that the washer has tipped over, there is a possibility that oil has gotten into the engine cylinder. Oil will not compress and the rope cannot be pulled..at all. Remove the spark plug and step back away from the exposed hole. Pull the recoil handle and watch for spraying oil from the spark plug hole. Pull a few more times, clean up the plug and the unit may start. If not, you may have to remove the carb bowl and drain more oil. Check your oil fill level. If your gas level is suddenly low you may have gas in the oil crankcase and need to change your oil. When the washer starts it may blow smoke for some time before it clears up.

I cannot get my honda 2500psi pressure washer to start at all i have changed spark plug and do have spark it has good gas in it and plenty of oil but will not start?


Three things needed for engine to run. Fresh fuel, good spark and good compression. I am assuming that water supply is disconnected for now and that you feel good resistance when you pull the rope indicating that there is compession. For now remove/unplug the low oil alert wire (if your model has one). Use carburator cleaner as fuel for now by spraying fuel directly into carb with air filter removed and choke off (do not flood just spray a little then little more if needed, the engine will only begin to run then stop unless you contine to spray fuel). If the engine does not respond most likely timing belt or plastic cam is cause. GCV series honda engines use timing belt with plastic cam gear. Gx series use metal gear. If the engine responds clean carb. Good luck

Motorturns over hard with pullstarter on my gx340 pressurewasher


You have a nice setup, lots of power. The honda gx340 has a compression release built into the engine so it should be relatively easy to start. With the pressure pump under load however, it will be very hard to pull the rope. With water connected hold spray gun open so water is running out tip and pull rope to start (for easy start, remove tip from gun) . If it still feels very hard to pull rope while holding gun open, most likely problem with lubrication in pump or engine valves are not adjusted correctly preventing compression release. If you suspect problem, go to store where you purchased the unit or any store that sells gx340 and pull the rope to get a feel of what force is required to start engine and compare to yours. Good luck.

I 'm trying to pull the rope and it will barely--honda pressure w


The rope may be bound up in the recoil. Take the recoil cover off(the piece where the pull rope goes into) and try to pull the rope with the housing off. If it pulls freely try turning the engine by hand, you may want to remove the spark plug to release the compression. If the unit will not turn over,then the pressure pump may have failed. Best of luck.

My almost new Honda GCV 160 engine will not start.


Hi , I think you need someone to remind you these engins are not made by god and they work by obeying three simple rules ,
1.Spark , Can you see a very good blue spark
2.compression,,can you feel strong compression ,
3.fuel , is the right amount of fuel getting in , is the air mixture good ,

Now try these things

Find the manual and PROPPER set the gap in the spark plug ,
clean and check the air filter ,
remove all fuel and replace with brand new,
check the fuel filter,even in the tank tap?
undo the screw at the carb bowl , can you see petrol leaking ,

If everything checks out then try this to get it started,,

spray "easystart" in the carb , bypassing the air filter ,
if it wants to start but cant for long then its a carb problem
check float hight , float needle,jets and pins ,too much air getting in

find someone thats good on motorbikes , They like me know all the tricks to get things to start ,
