Down Idle Wire Broke On Rigid Pressure Washer


I have a Rigid power washer down idle tech. The wire that opens pump when you press on spray nozzle broke. I tried to contact Rigid but for some reason I was unable to find their phone number.

Does anyone know where else I can buy this piece. If you need to see a pics of it I will post it. Since I am knew to CT I am not sure how to post pictures? I am still learning the this site, but I will find the way to post it.

The piece is called "down Idle wire"

Thanks

Here is the picture of the broken piece. I put solder to hold it and it seems to work but I am not sure how long it's going to hold.
Thanks.

I would not go through ridgid... I would track the part down by the engine brand.

Here is a good place to get your small engine parts online:
