How did the upgrade pump for Excel VR2500 seize during first use?

This happens when the pump is installed. When you slide the pump up the shaft and the key slides up the shaft to the curved groove in the engine shaft. When this happens it forces the key to push to far in to the pump hollow shaft and cracks and breaks it

I have a ic2 pump on my pressure washer, the diagrams have failed. My question is I need the parts to repair it, or how to purchase a replacement.

You can purchase a complete unit from Grainger for about $210.00. Their part number is 6UZP8. And in most cases they are located locally, so you can pick it up and be back in business quick. The pump is actually manufactured by Excell Power, so my thought would be replace the pump and then try to find a rebuild kit for the bad pump and try to rebuild it as a backup. Hope this helps.

What kind of oil do you put into a Excell pressure (exh2425) washer pump? Do you use the same as engine oil (30 w)?

Pressure washer oil

I took this picture of my power washer so it's easy to explain the oil.
The oil is different for engine and pump.

The pump oil is 20 or 30 weight non-detergent. SAE20 or SAE30 motor oil. The level of the oil comes up about half way. There is a plastic viewport on side of pump ... oil comes up half way on viewport.

The engine oil is 10W30 motor oil. It comes up about half way or a bit more on dipstick.

To remove oil from pressure washer, do not turn engine on it's side or turn engine upside down or motor oil will run into the carburetor. You might wonder how I know that. Afterward, the carburetor needs to be cleaned out.

To remove oil, you can tip engine to the side but not so much that oil runs up into top part ... to remove the rest of the oil, you can use a plastic hose

No pump pressure

Sounds like the diaphragm in the pump unit has failed, the engine and the pump are two seperate things the engine only operates the pump but if the diaphragm is leaking or broken you wont get any pressure
