Having a bit of a head off moment and need someone to put me straight.
I have bought a new charging hose off best fittings to replace the one that came with my fx stirrup pump as the parts are corroded. I have bought the hose to which i have added a male to male 1/8" bsp coupling at each end, one end does into the long brass part thats fitted to the base of the pump and the other part i have attached to a barrel fitting - in the other end the quick fill probe is screwed in.
I have tried to then charge the pcp unfortunately all the air is escaping by the barrel/ probe. I have bonded washers around each join ( apart from the male to male couplings to bsp female end fitting on the hose as it doesnt screw in all the way and theres nothing to sandwich the washer).
I have probably missed something stupid and simple.image2.JPGimage1.JPG
