If you want to run a very small amount through the engine to help clean carbon deposits I would say that was fine as long as you only used 1-2 ounces to the gallon. But if you want to run diesel through the pump itself I would not recommend this.
I would disassemble pump and thourghly clean all parts being especially careful to clean and polish all vanes on the impeller and bearing surfaces. Inspect and clean seals and replace if needed.Clean and inspect any o-rings and when you reassemble lightly coat all bearing and sealing surfaces with a good grade of silicon grease. Thank you.

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.

Diagram of a craftsman power washer


The only filter on the detergent pickup is usually at the end of the hose you drop into the detergent. To clean the line and syphon attachment only requires a little pressurized air to blow out any debris that may be in the line. Make sure you are using the black, soap tip on the pressure gun when trying to use the detergent syphon system. If you are using any of the high pressure tips there will be too much back pressure in the line for the syphon to work.

Oops! I put my son's weed-eater gas in the pressure washer. Now, I can't get it to start. I have emptied out the mixed, put in new... still no luck. is there a way I can prime it?


take out the spark plug and put just a couple drops of gas in the cyllinder head, and maybe one drop of oil, it will smoke a bit, but should **** new fuel in to carb

if there is a fuel filter running completely out of fuel sometimes allows all of the bad stuff in the fuel tank to plug the fuel filter (if it has one). press the primer bulb until you can hear fuel, then it should start.

New 75219 Power Washer is missing owners manual.


Any luck finding someone to give you a copy of the manual for this model? I bought one on clearance and it doesn't have the manual and I'm scared to even start it up without reading the manual as I don't want to mess anything up upon first start. If I ever do find one, I will post a copy of it for you. Good Luck! Thanks
