Yep, my 442 has been used for mechanical purposes before. And will be again if my BMW RD bearing fails on the road.

Roadside mechanics,please vote with me, "rate thread".....that one needs stars. At least 3 for.....inspiration.
I had the same problem with my Coleman . Changed the rubber seal in the pump for a leather one.
I made the pump leather from an old boot but there is a repair kit available too.
