 High pressure washer problem

I have had problems with my Sears 2400# pressure washer since last fall. I posted a note about the symptoms at that time and most felt the check valves were gummed up. I stored it this winter with RV antifreeze after flushing several times with vinegar. Each time I used it, I would flush it again. The only way I seem to be able to get the engine to kick up to HP is by flipping from low pressure on the wand to HP while holding the trigger open, and then it does not seem to have the poop it did.

I did notice a hesitation/delay in the engine reaction since it was new, but since I never owned one prior to this thought that was normal.

Now to this summer. It still operates the same way, I have to somehow jar the water supply to make it run up. I completely dismantled the pump and check valves and found everything fairly clean and free from corrosion. I just finished reassembling the unit but it is too dark to try it. I doubt anything changed as I found nothing wrong.

The power plant is a 5.5 Honda and I am wondering if the governor could be adjusted a bit heavy. If I hold the trigger open on the wand when it is set at H/P, I can make it run up by either turning the rpm down slightly and back up or bumping the governor linkage. It still does not seem to have quite the pressure it should at that point either but once in a great while you can feel it increase. I believe I have been chasing a ghost with that pump and that the problem might well lie with the governor, but I am not very familiar with these new small engines like this Honda.

Anyone had to adjust one of these, no instructions in the manual except return to dealer (Sears).

Thanks

OK, let's make this attempt to post #4. I posted this 3 times and the message said successfully posted and nothing posted. Not sure if this is what you are looking for but I will post it just in case.

I don't know what is the problem here but I attempted to post the Honda owner's manual link 5 times and it would not take it, just disappeared. You can still copy and paste to your web browser. Sorry Cutter!

Chief, this is the manual that I have. It does not detail anything about the governor or throttle controls. It looks as though I will have to feel my way through it. Hopefully I can identify the method necessary to set it properly, if that is indeed the ghost I am hunting on this thing.

The fact that you have to jiggle the water supply sounds like something is clogged in the pressure side of the equation. Have you back flushed the wand? and cleaned the nozzles? Is the intake screen clean
