How to remove unloader valve from a craftsman pressure washer.

Machine was working fine for about 1/2 hour,then engine shut off. Restarted engine which ran fine until about about 5 seconds after the wand trigger is pulled, then shut down. water pressure is good until
engine stopped. Restarted, engine ran fine again until about 5 seconds after trigger was pulled, then quit again.
Now engine won't run at all. I feel the unloader valve may be causing the grief, and I attempted to remove it to check, but can't free it. Is the one small nut all that is fastening the valve assembly to the pump body? If so, I am guessing corrosion is binding the valve in place. Looking for advice on the matter. Thanks in advance. Oz
