Hi,

get an empty half gallon plastic coke bottle, cut the bottle in half and use the bottom part to collect the oil, remove the oil dipstick, place the cut bottle under the hole and tip the engine on the side.

What type of fuel to be filled in 5.5 honda (R) Over cam


If engine has a place for oil, then use ordinary gasoline.
If engine does not have a place for oil, then you use 2-cycle mix with the gasoline

If you have a power washer, there are normally 2 places to put oil.
1) in the pump head >> use SAE20 or SAE30 >> fill it about half way.
2) At bottom of engine is a screw-out plug >> use 10-W30 oil >> fill until it comes up 1/2 or 2/3 up on dip stick.

If the cam jumped a few teeth the pistons would likely hit the valves. You could have holes in 4and 5 pistons or broken rings

White smoke. when it won't start, raw gas comes out of the exhaust GS190 honda Karcher 3000 PSI


Sounds like it's flooded. Close the throttle and open the choke if equipped. Pull it through a few times and then open the throttle a bit.

Karcher G 3000 BH Engine Pumping Problem


This may not be a motor problem. It sounds like your pump is not working properly and the motor is just following the pump. First thing to do is check for leaks in the pump, wand hose, gun etc. It may also be a blown water seal inside the pump.

Honda GC190 engine shuts down on my Karcher 3000 PSI PW


Well would you believe that I have the very same problem. I suspected that the pump was seizing up, so we tried the pump on another unit and it worked fine. On inspection of the motor we found the cam (which also operates the decompression mechanism) was worn out. It's made of hard plastic. It is only about 7 dollars too, so cheap enough to fix. I have mine ordered now and feel pretty confident that that should fix it.
