BEFORE STARTING THE ENGINE
Before you operate your pressure washer, you should prepare
the engine for the initial starting. To operate the engine you
will need the following:
EH ENGINE OIL
IMPORTANT: Any attemp to crank or start the engine before
it has been properly serviced with the recommended oil results
in an engine failure.
NOTE: When adding oil to the engine crankcase in the future,
use only high quality detergent oil rated with AP! service clas-
sification SF,SG or SH, rated SAE 30 weight. Select the oil's
viscosity grade according to your expected operating tem-
perature.
Although multi-viscosity oils (SW30, 10W30, etc.) improve
starting in cold weather, these multi-viscosity oils will result in
increased oil consumption when used above 32°F. Check
your engine oil level more frequently to avoid possible damage
from running low on oil. Oil sump capacity is 20 ounces.
» Place pressure washer on a level surface.
* Clean area around oil fill and remove oil dipstick (Step 8)
STEP 8 — Add oil to engine crankcase. Do not
attempt to start engine without adding oil.
e Wipe dipstick clean.
Pour recommended oil into the oil fill opening until oil reaches
FULL mark on the dipstick. DO NOT OVERFILL.
o Install oil dipstick, hand tighten securely.
E ADD GASOLINE
WARNING: NEVER FILL FUEL TANK INDOORS.
A NEVER FILL FUEL TANK WHEN ENGINE IS RUN-
NING OR HOT. DO NOT SMOKE WHEN FILLING
FUEL TANK.
WARNING: NEVER FILL FUEL TANK COMPLETELY
| A FULL. FILL TANK TO ABOUT 1/2” BELOW THE
BOTTOM OF FILLER NECK TO PROVIDE SPACE
FOR FUEL EXPANSION. WIPE AWAY ANY FUEL
SPILLAGE FROM ENGINE AND EQUIPMENT
BEFORE STARTING.
The manufacturer recommends fresh, clean unleaded regu-
lar automotive gasoline with a minimum of 77 octane (Leaded
regular grade is an acceptable substitute).
* Use clean fuel and store in approved, clean covered con-
tainers. Use clean fill funnels. Never use “stale” gasoline left
over from last season or gasoline stored for long periods.
es Clean area around fuel fill cap, remove cap (Step 9).

FACTORY SETTING CAN BE DANGEROUS.
IMPORTANT: Changing of engine governed speed will void
engine warranty.
B CLEANING CHEMICAL INJECTOR HOSE
If you have used chemical injector hose you must flush it with
clean water before stopping the engine.
1. Place the injector filter into a pail of clean water while run-
ning pressure washer with nozzle in low pressure mode.
Flush for five minutes. 3
2. Shut off the pump.

system. When engine has shut down, squeeze the trigger
on the gun to relieve the pressure in the hose.
Ш NOZZLE MAINTENANCE
If the adjustable nozzle becomes restricted or clogged with
foreign materials, such as dirt, excessive pump pressure may
develop. If this nozzle becomes partially clogged, it can cause
a pulsing sensation during use. This generally is not a pump
related problem, but rather a clogged or partially restricted
adjustable nozzle.
NOTE: You cannot service the turbo nozzle.
If the adjustable nozzle becomes clogged or partially restricted,
immediately clean the nozzle with the kit included with your
pressure washer by following these instructions:

PREPARING THE UNIT FOR
| STORAGE
Water should not remain in the unit for long periods of time.
Sediments of minerals can deposit on pump parts and “freeze”
pump action. If you do not plan to use the pressure washer
for more than 30 days, follow this procedure:
1. Flush detergent hose by placing the injector filter into a pail
of clean water while running pressure washer with nozzle
in low pressure mode. Flush for five minutes.
2. Shut off the engine and let it cool, then remove all hoses.
3. Place throttle lever in STOP position.
CAUTION: Be sure lever is in “STOP” position
A before you continue. If you start engine without
proper water supply connected, you can damage
pump.
4, Empty the pump of all pumped liquids by pulling recoil
handle about 6 times. This should remove most of the
liquid in the pump.
- NOTE: To protect unit from freezing temperatures, draw wind-
shield washer fluid into pump by pouring windshield washer
fluid into a 3-foot section of garden hose connected to inlet
adaptor and pulling recoil handle twice.
5. Store in a clean, dry area.
