Zefal HP Husky pump parts?

Is it possible to find a replacement piston gasket? Mine seems to have worn enough over 10 years or so to not easily seal unless I grease it up and push down fast. Also, it's rubber - is grease recommended? Maybe silicone grease? The original grease was pretty black. Mea culpa for not greasing it regularly, I guess.

You can buy it here:
http://www.xxcycle.com/washer-piston,,en.php

Though, you have to pay for shipping from France, so you'd better select something else on the website.

I don't know about you, but $USD1.48 shipping seems like a real bargain for an item that seems almost impossible to source anywhere else!

There is nothing wrong with xxcycle. It has the best selection of French parts, especially, Zefal.

I've ordered once. Some parts were in stock, it took them a week or two to get all of the parts. Then the parcel arrived in a week. I didn't mind waiting because I couldn't find the parts anywhere else.

I've ordered from them in the past with no problems. Keep in mind that I live in Europe.

I've order from them several times w/o problems. The delivery was quick. The only issue is that, while prices may be quoted in USD, a currency exchange takes place. That can be inconvenient because, these days, the US credit-card companies tack a few percent finance charge to the foreign-exchange transactions, beyond the buy/sell currency price difference. I solve that by having a dedicated card for foreign transactions from a company that does not add the extra charge.

Followup. The Zefal Husky is really a rebranded SKS Rennkompressor. I just phoned SKS-USA in Illinois, and they are sending me a free replacement rubber thingy.
