spratt pressure cleaner w/honda engine

Spratt 1500 psi pressure washer with Honda gx140 5 horse engine.

Problem: Engine starts right up and runs fine until I engage the pressure cleaner. After pressure cleaning for a few minutes the engine starts to stumble and then stalls. Will restart but continues to stumble and stall when the engine is under load. There is a rod that moves back and forth (think its the govenor rod) when the engine is under load. Any ideas. Thanks in advance for your help.

The trouble you have, most likely, is pump related and not engine related. And, most likely, is the unloader valve.

If the symptoms appear while pressure washing, IE:with the trigger pulled, its prolly not the unloader valve. Check the hoses fittings gun and wand for damage or obstruction.
