Slow cranking (low battery or dragging starter)...

Slow cranking (low battery or dragging starter) can make it more likely to backfire. Also you might try a different spark plug, just a regular champion. Closely mounted muffin type mufflers can also...

To make the solenoid engage, you need to put power to one of the small terminals, and ground the other. The headlight portion of the stator has nothing to do with it other than it's a path to ground....

Hello Deesigns, welcome! I moved this post to a thread of it's own since it really had nothing to do with the old thread it was attached to.

The pumps can be very difficult to get off sometimes. I...

Agreed, it should be filled with acid the first go around. You don't really want to top off with acid over time as you refill because you will make the acid concentration stronger and stronger,...

Great, just make sure you keep the trash can full, let it overflow but not on to the pressure washer, and you should be in business.

Most likely the clutch drum brake band got engaged during removal or before removal (hence difficult removal). I'd reset the brake bar and see if it goes on properly.

It sounds to me like you have an externally grounded solenoid and you are giving it a ground by connecting that terminal to the stator.

You don't need three. Three won't be any different than one. You probably won't have the 20 psi but if you have ample flow, it will probably work fine.

That's the whole point of the different color tips. Different spray angles for different applications. They normally have the spray angles embossed on them.

Stop throwing parts at it and do some diagnostics. Can you turn the engine by hand? You never addressed my last question but if you get a click, then the fuse should be fine.

That's why I suggested a larger size plumbing to compensate for the low pressure. As long as you get a flow of over 5 gallons per minute from it, you should be able to supply the pump. Set it up and...

No, az-guy, the pressure washer doesn't pump water in. It needs available water. It can develop a small amount of suction but that will starve the pump, it's not designed for that application and...

Good points above, I guess it depends on how long you intend to have it in storage. If it's possible to crank it up every other month or so, that's the best. If that's not likely to happen, it still...

Even running it until it stalls leaves some residual gas in the carb. Many carbs have a drain screw so that you can drain the last bit out. I highly recommend doing that or carb problems are likely....

The spigot can be installed at the bottom, it doesn't have to be higher than the pressure washer, only the water level in the drum does. You can find plastic 55 gallon drums on craigslist and...

I'd visually check for spark at the spark plug electrode. The air gap of the coil is around .010". It's not critical as long as it's close, and it doesn't care if it's rusty or not.
