I also fit a Silca Presta-only chuck on my Medai until I could find a repalcement chuck insert. I replaced the OEM pressure hose with a length of 1/4" air hose I got from an auto parts shop. The Silca head fit fine and I clamped it in place with a stainless steel worm clamp. The pump end of the hose was slightly large but a tight clamp made it fit also.
