Galley Hand Pump

Hi All--Wondering if you can give me some insight into how to go about fixing my galley handpump. It is the original in a 58 Airsteam Traveler. Pump is fine but does not draw any water. It use to if I sucked the water to get started but now that does not work. Looks like it needs some type of gasket repair or something?

Any help would be appreciated.

Bart

At least I am not alone on this problem. However, I don't have to worry about it for another year since I haven't gotten to the point of putting the inner skins back on.

But yes you are probably going to have to disassemble the hand pump and replace the O-rings and perhaps any gaskets as well. Unless you find something solid is broken inside the pump, a quick trip to the hardware store should help you fix any O-ring issues.

There are also modern replacements available if the existing one can't be repaired.
