I believe the inner rings and walls get scored so I tend to change these out but I keep the slingshot alum. shaft for longevity. What do you do to rehab your pumps? Any tips or tricks to share?

The best therapy is called "Go to Walmart, Bunnings, Carrefour or whatever it's called where you live and get a $10 replacement that is just as good as the original $40 pump". :remybussi:

Good video thanks. I'm a little concerned about mixing petroleum-based lubricants with the gaskets as he does, may deteriorate them. :argue:

Thoroughly clean out with a soft rag and then apply a small so read of Vaseline petroleum jelly. I have done this now a few times.......perfect.
