Karcher 3 1/2 HP (gas) been stored 2 years but put away with weather proofing...I thought. Got it out today gassed it up and put water thru it...started right up with no leakage at the pump but the pistol grip leaked quit badly and altho I had some pressure it was not near what it should be...any suggestions and do I need a new handle?
