I have a troy bilt...
I have a troy bilt pressure washer 3000 psi 2,7 gpm with a Briggs & Stratton engine. The pump model is RMW 2.5G28. I hooked the water supply to it and the pressure hose but nothing came through the pump. I did start the engine but it only made maybe 1 revolution and froze. I have disconnected the bolts on the pump but cannot pull it off the engine. Is there another bolt connecting it?

There is no other bolt, just the shaft with keyway, slipped onto the bottom of the crankshaft. Use two pry bars to pull the pump off the bottom of the motor. Some models use a set screw to hold a coupler, but this pump does not.
