Silly Tire Pump question...

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Silly Tire Pump question...

Guys,
I have pumped up a lot of tires with my Park bike tire pump but it is only a couple of seasons old. It still works but is starting to squeal when I pump. Not sure if the seal is going dry or if the seal is failing. Again, it still works but is making quite a racket. Anybody else have this happen. Is the seal serviceable and/or can or should it be greased periodically?
Thanks,
George

I use an antique Silca floor pump. All the leather gaskets are replaceable and can be found on Ebay. Maybe the same with your pump?
