craftsman power washer question

I have a 6hp/2400psi pressure washer, about 5 years old and used very little and runs great but I have to keep the wand handle squeezed or pressure builds up in the line and shuts down the engine. Understand it may be an unloader valve - where is it located on the pump? I have had the top of the pump apart and all the way to the pistons, put it back together and same issue. Any help is greatly appreciated. Unit has sat for over a year and there seems to be a lot of calcium buildup inside the pump.

problem hopefully solved

Found the part, it's contained in the manifold kit so I ordered one and will install the manifold and hopefully fix the problem.
