Seafoam to the Rescue (again)....

Had to break out the pressure washer for a task. I had used it5 - 6 months ago and had cleaned the carb (manually) then and run it out of gas when I was done.

So it started after 5 - 6 pulls. Problem was, unless I left the choke almost fully closed, it would stall.

Put about an ounce of Seafoam in the gas tank with perhaps half a gallon of gas. Ran it for 10 minutes or so to be sure I got the Seafoam into the carb.

Pulled it out today to finish the job, it started on the first pull, but still needed the choke. Put another ounce of Seafoam in with another half gallon of gas. Ran it for about 5 minutes when I heard the engine sounds change. Turned off the choke, and it ran perfectly!!!

So ran it out of gas again except this time it has Seafoam remains in it.

For all you pressure washer owners, it's in your best interest to lend it to friends as often as possible!

Seafoam was originally designed for boats. That's where the name came from.

I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
