What kind of pump oil for simpson gcv190


I need to know the model of the pump you have. You are giving us the model of the engine which is a Honda GCV190. Can you tell me the model on the pump itself. It is more than likely an AR pump but I need to know . It is more than likely going to take 30 weight non detergent but some pumps take specific oil. You can also call Barens at Pressure washer parts catalog quick links Pressure Washers High Pressure... They can hook you up with the correct oil for your pump. Good luckOADXAV

Does it hurt a pressure washer to run hot water thought it went they hook up the water for outside to hook it to the hot water i did not no it and i hook it to the pressure washer


most pressure washers have packings that can sustain a temperature of 140 degrees although it as strongly not recommended since the pump head heats up when in bypass mode(triggergun closed)best rule for pressure washer is never leave the trigger closed for more than 3 minutes even with a thermal sensor:):)

Where are the filters located on the craftsman 2700 power washer


The only filters on a pressure washer are: Where the hose hooks up to the pump there is sometimes a washer with a screen inside it. The syphon hose usually has a fine filter on the end that drops into the detergent. If this question is related to your other post see my answer there.

Detergent tank will not draw.


Detergent tanks will only draw at low pressure. Switching to low-pressure is done is several different ways with different makes/models. Some pressure nozzles are push/pull, some are twist and some just have a quick coupling and you have to keep up with a low pressure tip (usually colored black).

If it will not draw at low presser, it is either stopped up with debres, or the check ball inside the injector is stuck. The injector is the little device that is just before the outlet where the pressure hose hooks up. These always have a small metal ball, held in place with a tiny spring. This ball is there to prevent pressurized water from shooting back into the detergent tank. The ball and seat that it presses against can get stuck together with old detergent residues, calcified deposits from the water or even rust.

Use a small crescent wrench to take it apart -- or if you prefer, find the right size box end/open end (metric) wrench. Be very cautious as it comes apart because that little spring can leap out and they are hard to find.
I hope this is helpful to you. If it is, please take a sec to rate me. Thanks!

Water goes thru. have hydrulic oil to level. gun semas to stick on. NOT GETTING ANY PRESSURE AT NOSSEL.


Hydraulic oil?
Is this a pressure washer?
Pump should be half full of SAE20 or SAE30 non-detergent motor oil.
Engine should have 10W30 motor oil.

If you have a pressure washer ... and not water is coming out end of gun:
Take all hoses off machine.
Look at incoming water hose connection.
The should be a filter washer.
Clean or replace filter washer.
Hook up water and turn on water.
Water should come out other side of pump.
Turn on power washer and see if water coming out of pump is pressurized.
Now hook up pressure hose without gun.
Turn on pressure washer and see if water comes out of hose and is pressurized.
Finally, the gun may be bad.
We used to replace guns when they went bad.

John deere 3800psi pressure washer will not siphon detergent. the water end does fine but cannot get any soap


The only way the washer will draw soap into the line is with either the black tip installed or with no tip in wand at all.There is a ball and spring inside of the pipe that the siphon hose hooks to so when you use the washer with alot or even a little pressure the ball is forced up and blockes off the soap inlet port.So if you use it with no tip in the inlet port is open cause the ball isnt being forced up by back pressure.I hope this makes sense.

How do I hook up and use soap on model 020228 pressure washer


There are different nozzles. One for detergent, Max, General and Delicate. The detergent one is more a less a soaker its opening is the biggest (less producing pressure), it's the one that must be used to siphon the soap out of the container none of the other tips will allow to siphon. I hope this is helpful to you please rate this answer on how helpful it was. Good Luck and have a great weekend.
