I have a hand operated water pump in my garden that worked quite well until the leather washer wore out.  I found a replacement but now the pump dosen’t work I assume because I didn't assemble it correctly. I’m now looking for either answers from this forum or suggestions as to forums that specialise in this subject.

I added your post to wells and springs, so you will get better advice.

I'm not knowledgable about pumps, but I do know that pictures of the problem can make it easier for folk to help you.
