Who's it for?
If you are rebuilding any SILCA PISTA or SUPERPISTA produced from the 1960’s to 2013 and want to ensure original accuracy.Why We Designed It | Product Specs
This the of the few full metal gauges for bicycle pumps available today. In updating this part for the new SILCA, we reinforced some of the internals to improve shock resistance.
The internal mechanism uses a diaphragm where the needle is stabilized with a beautifully polished steel plate. The gauge face itself was originally hand drawn by Claudio's son who is a cartoonist in Milan.
The replacement gauge is larger than my original and would not install directly. I spaced the valve body out, so was able to make it work, though not ideal. This is for a c. 1980 pista pump that I have owned since new.
Worked perfectly as a replacement gauge on a vintage Silca floor pump.
The new gauge was an easy replacement with the two washers and prepped threads. Gauge compares w other pump as far as accuracy. Glad to repair rather than waste a good tool!
Put pump back in service..
Exact replacement for the original gauge.
