Park Tools Pump acting up. (?)
I suspect my Park Tools floor pump w/ gauge has a problem...
Can't get a good seal and accurate, stable PSI reading when inflating my presta valves anymore.
At first, I thought it was the bent valve stem tip.. but I've ruled that out... At low psis everything is fine, but then it starts leaking from the bad seal and the psi just drops and I keep on pumping fast and have to guess by feel when my tire is good.....
I always felt that the threads on the stems were kind of rough on the pump nozzle when inserting.. I think it damaged the whole seal thing by now.
Can I replaze just the nozzle on the pump? or could the problem be something else?
