Tip when you reassemble

Don't use grease on the pump gaskets. Only use it on the plunger and valves.

If you use it on the pump gaskets, pump pressure can cause them to slip (and leak). This is the voice of experience. I had to open it up and clean the gaskets and mating surfaces with solvent, then reassemble. GOBI got me.
