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.
