Those Honda engines have a gas tank cut-off valve. Make sure the gas is open.

I borrowed a pressure washer, and it was running fine till it wouldn't pull start. I was about to load it into the car and go to the repair shop when I decided to go to the internet. I read your post, released the pressure by pulling the trigger on the wand, and it started right up. Thanks again!
