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

    Most of the time but not ALWAYS...30 weight Non detergent SAE is used in most pump but on the smaller engine Hondas as well as the larger pumps such as the dual pumps that run automatic car washes take a special gear oil or hydraulic oil....This is why I asked for the model of the pump. It is not always safe to assume it is 30 weight non detergent. I have repaired too many from people putting 30 weight in and it being the wrong oil.

    Hello Jeff, (I commented/replied earlier, but don't see it?) Anyway... Thank you for that info! I have learned something today. I truly appreciate folks like you that share their knowledge, and will offer correction when deemed necessary. And I, always welcome correction if needed. I own multiple washers both electric and gas, hot and cold, 1800 psi / 1.5 gpm to 5000 psi / 5 gpm and I add Non detergent as instructed to all of them. Once again, thanks for the clarification.

What oil viscosity and how much on my simpson pressure washer msv 3024


Here's a link to your Simpson manual:
http://simpsoncleaning.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/manuals/megashot/MSV3024-I-pwmanual-7107460.pdf
No oil is required for the pump.

10W-30 is normally specified for a Honda GCV160-GCV190 engine. You drain the oil by removing the oil cap/dipstick and then tilting the machine on it's side so that the oil can drain out if the oil fill into a container. (Drain when warm so it flows easily).

The capacity of the engine is ~18.6 oz. Refill amount is ~12.0-13.5 oz. (either engine).

When refilling, add oil and check on dipstick often. To check, press the dipstick into the oil fill, but DO NOT SCREW IT DOWN. Just insert the dipstick in until it contacts the top of the oil fill. The correct reading is between the lower and upper limits marked on the dipstick. (You may have to look carefully to see the marks).

What kind of pump oil


What you have is a generic pump from china more than likely. Its built along the line of a FAIP pump. They arent supposed to have the oil changed in them at all. Most are sealed pumps but may have a plastic plug in it. If you must replace the oil then I would suggest Pressure washer parts catalog quick links Pressure Washers High Pressure... and get this item 4.5 OZ. AR64545 OIL FOR AXIAL PUMPS. It is recommended for pumps built similarly but not for your specific pump. But it should work. Good luck. W

My husband has a husqvarna self propelled mower that was running great and now all of a sudden it will not allow him to pull the string to start it? I believe the model is gcv190? Do you think something...


the problem with tilting the mower on its side is that you put oil up in the carburator.that makes the needle let dirt through it.remove the spark plug and pull the recoil a few times until you do not see any more fuel comming out.once all the fuel is out of the cylinder,reinstall the spark plug,chech oil level.you should change the air filter.it probally has oil in it and will make the engine not run right..start the mower and let it run awhile.the problem shoul clear it self up.if it happens again you will have to clean the dirt from inside the carburator.hope this helps let me know...................
