Footpumps and parts

My family is just getting back into white water rafting after taking off a long break due to life. We recently broke out all the old gear because one of my cousins lucked into a permit for the Middle Fork. Had a great time. For the most part our gear held up to the task with the exception of our old foot pump.

The foot pump we have is still a good pump but the valve to the hose is shot (bellows still work fine). Does anyone know where I can buy a replacement valve? I know I can buy a new pump reasonably cheap but this foot pump also holds some sentimental value.

Barring being able to fix this old pump, I am wondering what foot pumps people would recommend. My google skills turned up a couple that sound good but then again, everything sounds good when marketing describes it right?

I'm not sure about replacement parts for your existing pump, but I have a 5" barrel pump that works very well. Mine is made by NRS, but another good brand is Carlson. Check out They might have some parts.

The pump is circa 1970 so I doubt I can find original parts but I thought at least I could retro fit a check valve into it but I am finding very little on line in the way of check valves (correction, I am finding lots of metal valves etc... but nothing that would be appropriate for this pump).
