I have a Karcher 1750g pressure washer. While doing a repair I turned the pump upside down and oil ran out of the pump. How do I put oil back into the pump? Does it require disassembly of the pump? What type oil does it take?
Thanks in advance.

Why don't you try adding oil into the same orifice the oil ran out of?

On the Karchers, generally you pull the entire pump assembly off the unit, disassemble it, turn the housing that bolts to the engine upside down, fill about 3/4 or the way with oil, reassemble the whole thing, then bolt it back to the engine. Typically 30wt synthetic engine oil is recommended by Karcher. You can find the owners manual and IPL here: http://www.ordertree.com/partlist/manufacturer/models?id=33&mn=k17&page=1

I have an 850 which is similar to yours but smaller. 16 years old and still pumps right along. Never had to go into an old one, but we do see a lot of the newer ones in here for warranty repair, mainly the unloader sticking on the gas ones, bottom pump seals out on the electric ones. Feel free to pm me if you run into any issues.
