Hello, my name is***** you for allowing me to assist you today.
What you have here is a locked up high pressure pump. You will need to remove the VST,the silver tank, and open it. Once you have it off and open you will see the pump. If you send me the serial number of the engine I can get you the part number that you will need for the pump.
