All is goo...

Re: Jubilee mk1 bandit handle not returning HELP the newb

Well, the mighty Badpenny solved my problem identifying it was a mills pump in the machine. I set to work, the bleed valve was filthy, the rear of the pump was covered in orange foam, the piston was grimey and sticky.

Re: Jubilee mk1 bandit handle not returning HELP the newb

Its definitely the pump, doesnt do nowt. Im not risking making a pigs ear of it so im getting a reconditioned one from Henry Powell, so i send my one to him and he will do it up.
