Limited Warranty

SILCA LIMITED WARRANTY 

Parts covered by SILCA Limited Warranty are considered to be subject to wear through normal use or are consumable subject to degradation through the course of their daily use.  SILCA guarantees the life of these items to be at least 2 years from the date of original purchase.

    What is it?

    The sealing gasket for at least 3 historic SILCA brass chucks with reversible heads as well as the IMPERO frame pump.

    Who's it for?

    If you own a classic SILCA floor pump with a reversible brass head or an IMPERO frame pump, this is the replacement gasket. The images on this page shows some of those possible applications.

    Why We Designed It | Product Specs

    Why We Designed It:

    There are at least 3 original SILCA brass chucks that use this gasket as well as the IMPERO frame pump.  However, none of them were as widely sold as the Presta Only chuck and we had been unable to find original 323 gaskets that were unused and in near original condition to assess performance, so the team at SILCA had to completely redesign and optimize this part from scratch.

    This modern 323 gasket has been developed using the same high-tech fully synthetic elastomer used on our modern 242 gasket on the SuperPista ultimate.  We find that this material allows for greater valve holding power, greater sealing and significantly improved life expectancy.  New 2-stage Seal Design improves high pressure performance and also makes it unnecessary to press the chuck on as far as the original design required.   With a 323 gasket your classic SILCA pump will literally perform BETTER than new!

    Here's to another 50 years!

    I needed to replace the old rubber gasket in my 1970's era Silca pump with a new 323 gasket. I'm very happy that you still offer these parts, and Martha's patient instruction videos are quite helpful. I'll be 70 next month. My Silca pump will probably out live me!

    A new lease of life for me and my Silca pump.

    Dear Silca, I bought my Silca track pump 30 years ago when I was a keen cyclist. Then came marriage, family and a mortgage and my pump sat unused in my shed for 27 years. Then exit marriage, mortgage and grown up family and now I am a keen cyclist again. I was going to throw my old pump away after I found the original rubber gasket had perished and failed after only a few uses. My local bike shops had no solutions. Luckily I found your website and ordered the new gasket. Your YouTube channel showed me how to use it properly (as I never did in the past) and now I actually enjoy pumping up my tyres where as in the past I used to hate it. You have made cycling even more enjoyable, if that was ever possible!!! Thank you.

    SILCA: Gasket did not come with instructions on which way to orient inside head; had to call to make sure orientation was as I assumed--also, learned on phone which way the white plastic prod should orient when reassembled--would be good to have this assembly illustrated within a comprehensive instruction. I do not see any high pressure-low volume hand pumps in the Silca offerings for shock pressurization--is Silca interested in developing and offering this kind of pump, as the cheap ones I rely on are very hard to use especially after getting up to over 200 psig. Is Silca interested in developing and offering an inflator similar to e the type that Park Tool offers (https://www.parktool.com/product/shop-inflator-inf-2?category=Pumps), except make it much better and more durable along with more features? Again, I do not see this type of tool in the Silca offerings. See attached photo of crude assembly I put together long ago that uses as Silca head for presta valving and trigger I bought from an auto parts store--this could be idealized with higher quality trigger, duality for presta and schrader built in to the design, and gauging ,etc. Please call me at 303.478.7201 to discuss if you are interested in hearing more of what i think on some new offerings that may expand Silca's market presence. I was in Indianapolis last week and called in to your facility hoping it was a storefront of some sort or at least having opportunity to tour your facility, however I came to understand that Silca is not set up for tours and that purchasing is done through distributors. Thank you, Bill Irvine MBA, PE 303.478.7201

    Good as new

    In addition to replacing the hose, I replaced both gaskets in the chuck of my 30+ year old Silca pump. Cheaper than buying a new pump

    Your products are excellent. My only gripe was that I did not have a shipping option for a much slower, but low cost routing. I was in no urgent need of the parts, but had to pay shipping essentially equal to the value of your product. I purchased another item earlier this year and it took a long time but was very economical. What happened?
