Pressure Washer problem.

I have a Karcher pressure washer with a Tecumseh engine. It recently has developed a low pressure spray and the engine runs fine. I removed the four bolts for the pump itself to see if maybe there were any worn parts or clogged filters/screens. There were none. When I reinstalled the pump and tightened the screws I noticed that I cant pull the starter rope. I loosened the bolts and it frees up so I can pull the rope. Thing is i have to have them tight so it doesn't leak oil. Maybe there is a special way to put it back together..I cant really see it though. Any ideas guys?

Kind of hard to tell... there are a zillion different models and yours could be any one of them. Sounds like it's not put together right.
