Pedal Force floor pump $2 overhaul

My much used floor pump from Performance wasn't pumping as well as it used too...took it apart and found that a O-ring is the seal on the plunger...and that a Number 18 O-ring from Home Depot plumbing area was a perfect replacement (1 3/16 OD by 15/16 ID by 1/8). 10 O-rings for a couple of bucks. Sweet.

Isn't it refreshing when something bike-related isn't unnecessarily made to a proprietary dimension?

Just fyi, I've switched over to an ace store near me, mainly because home depot / lowes makes you buy bags of parts, usually when I only need one. They have a much better selection to boot, especially when I'm looking for stainless metric hardware. You may want to see if some local hardware stores keep a good selection.
