Go to Porter Cables website and see if they have an unloader valve rebuild kit.

Or try a site like this one.

Does not have a choke. how do i start it?

does it have a primer bulb
if so press it several times until you feel a slight resistance
open the throttle up and pull the cord
the primer bulb squirts a set amount of raw fuel directly into the manifold

What psi does the gc150 5.0 pressure washer put out? Is it too much for wooden decks and docks?

To answer you exactly I would need to know the model number of the pump. But in general a pressure washer powered by a 5hp engine would put out between 1800 to 2800 psi. The volume (Gallons per minute) would vary from 2.1 to 3 gpm. That being said, any of these variations would allow you to wash a wooden deck with the proper amount of caution. 1st Choose a nozzle with the widest spray pattern (usually the white one) 2nd Hold the nozzle about 6 inches from the deck. 3rd Always used a sweeping motion WITH the grain of the wood. If you find that it's not quite cleaning the way you want you can always move the nozzle closer to the deck or change the nozzle to the next narrower option(usually the green one) Hope this answers your questions.

I have a northstar 2800psi 2.5gpm washer that doesn't pick up the cleaning soluion, is there an adjustment to make it **** the fluid out more?

There isn't an adjustment for pulling the cleaning solution out faster or slower. It's an automatic function, based on the size of the power washer (meaning it ****s at different rates for different sized washers). Here's a link to the manual for more information:
Hope this helps!

No pressure to handle

sounds as if pressure relief valve is stuck open. you will have to disassemble relief valve and clean or replace.
