Question Pressure washer siezed - Homelite 2700PSI

I bought a new PW 5 years ago.. I used it a couple of times, lent it to a few friends, and then my ex-wife kept it for 3 years.. I finally got it back, and when I tried to start it.. can't pull the cord. Back pressure? easy fix right.. I squeezed the trigger and got the garden hose pressure out. But the sucker still is locked up. If the unloader valve corroded, would that maintain the pressure in the pump? Or am I looking at replacing the entire pump? The gas was drained, there's oil (looks clean), all the switches were off, petcock closed. But I don't think I've gotten that far to worry about those things.

Thoughts? Suggestions?

Homelite 2700psi with a Honda CGV190 (I have had a honda mower that has started on the first pull for 6 years.. )

I have the same motor that sat for a bit and attempting to pull the cord gave me the same symptoms you are describing. It was completely locked up when attempting to pull the cord. Check the oil, pull the spark plug and see if it will turn over without the plug installed. . Mine shot about a cup of water out the sparkplug hole when i did this. After seeing this i decided to split the case and found the case full of a sludge of oil/dirt/and water. Engine has no removeable head so splitting the case was my only option and its not really an easy fix at all. It is easy if you have all the tools, but it is just annoyingly time consuming. Also cleaning the carb is a necessity if its sat for 3 years.

It isnt a problem with the pump, it is a problem with the engine.
