I was readin the forum on the different pump #'s and I still don't know the difference. What # is most common? What # would be best for hoppin? And what # would be best for your normal rider?

Also, is it best to match the hose # with the pump # for best results?

#6 = low volume, high pressure.
#13 = higher volume, lower pressure.

even #'s are regular steel pump heads
odd #'s are italian style alloy type head.

i like the steel ones... with some machining.. they are great.. also depends on the usage on them.... because most of the steel pump heads now days. are very old..
