Question about Karcher 2500 PSI Pressure Washer

My Honda GC160 engine on my pressure washer is next to impossible to pull start. I have checked and added oil to make sure it is full. Still no luck getting it to pull.

    Try to remove the pump(4 bolts), then start the engine...Most likely the pump is seized.
