Originally the triplex piston Comet pump was driven by a Honda GC 160 and sat on a wheeled cart. The engine was sold thinking the pump was not fixable. The pump piston seals had worked loose letting in some of the gearbox oil past the piston seals, reseated the seals, modified it to bolt directly to the 1A08 Mil-spec engine with a modified new carb, modified Tecumseh muffler to take off the exhaust note edge and built a custom portable frame for it to bolt all on to. Fuel pump is camshaft driven and fuel tank out of Ryobi 2-smoker snowblower.

This is late summer for pressure washing the rear deck for re-painting, right now i am using a 1/4 '' 2800 psi cheap hose and gun but will be replaced with 3/8 3000 psi heavy duty goodyear hose and better gun with different nozzles, carry handles will be mounted to the sides with a tray/box for holding all the nozzles and hopefully some paint to finish it all.

The pic's are not in order of build and testing.

I though you had put the diesel on that too. But that should work!

Thought about that, the 3/4 Di. 2 1/2 long crank would of worked but the Mil-spec was sitting around waiting for a job collecting dust.

Spends more time sitting so it made sense to use a military engine that is built to sit for years but always fire up.

Looks nice....Should do a good job pressure washing GT's too!

I see you have a soap suction tube....Hope it works for you, as I have a $4500 unit at work that the soap deal has never worked correctly from day 1!

Nice job. I need to get my Honda pressure washer out and get a new engine on it.
