    pump head rebuild

    Hi all,
    My Google Fu never was up to snuff, and I'm sliding as the years wear on. I need to rebuild the pump head on a Zefal HPX4. where does one find such parts?
    Thanks

    The real beauty of this play, aside from the fact it was made by my favorite team, is that it was perfectly executed. The receiver ran a perfect route; Wilson threw a touchdown pass, and the defender played his part perfectly. A thing of beauty.

    Biketoolsetc.com used to sell some Zefal parts, as did the Third hand AKA loosescrews.com
    but try xxcycle.com in France, they had complete rebuild kits and spare heads up to a few years ago.
    Nope, just looked at their site and either they hide them really well or no longer offer parts
    Components Accessories on sale at XXcycle - en

    Maybe simpler to buy a new pump, although that sort of thinking typically goes cross-grain for me.

    I recently had an issue with one of these, and taking a couple others apart in the process, I found at least 3 different configs of the inerds.

    It appeared, though I can't state unequivocally, that the head shell itself was the same in all cases. So if you find a complete set of the inner works, it should fit, but slipping in one part might not.

    at a glance: yes it probably will. Many of these Zefal pumps shared many parts...but not all or always.

    If you're talking circa 1980s-1990s pumps, this is the pump manual page for switching a Zefal HPx between Schrader or Presta valves. The parts are also the same as the Zefal HP.

    Thanks. I have a HP, that I bought here, and I think I can still buy them here. I might just go that route, If I can still find one.

    Niagara tells me this will work. FYI

    Owning a couple of Silca's prevented me from knowing this could be a problem!
    Bikes don't stand alone. They are two tired.

    Assuming you are using it for presta, it would be great if you could report back.

    Do we think the parts that come in that kit are the entirety of what's going into the pump head, ie. not re-using any other parts?

    We'll see. I would guess we are re-using other parts. It's been awhile since I've had it open. I'll pull apart my HP first, to compare. Only presta for me; I finally gave up on schrader tubes. I don't buy them anymore anyway.
