    Hopefully in proper section.

    I have a simoniz 2000psi electric pressure washer that's not working properly. It turns on and runs but no water comes out of nozel. So I took cover off to see inside. I took some screws out that are on the high pressure side, no water there. So I know it's a blockage between the inlet and pistons. So I need to take pump and motor out of unit so I can work on it.

    So I was able to take out 2 of the screws from back, but there is this screw/bolt/nut? that I have never seen before that's preventing motor from coming out. have any one of you seen it before and if so what tool do I need? it's the gold looking thing in hole at bottom. about 3 inches in

    It looks like a security torx screw, but it's hard to tell from the picture.
    If there is a small pin sticking up in the middle of the screw it's a security screw and you will need to buy the security screw driver.

    In the past I have been able to break off the nipple in the middle of these security screws and use a regular torx screw driver.
