No, I don't recall a description of that specific (check-valve)
replacement ordeal. My photo on Chris's site
does show the old-style pump (on left). The check valve is the
small-diameter part extending a couple of inches from the top--it
sits beneath the disc-shaped silencer. As I mentioned in my post,
it's not going to be easy (and maybe impossible) to replace that
valve without removing the entire pump. Worth doing if that's your
problem, but too bad you don't need a new pump too (just joking). If
your pump looks like the one on the right side of the photo, then
there isn't any external valve to replace, and your problem probably
lies somewhere else.
