Have you investigated the problem with the pump?

The plug that connects pump to cigar lighter is poorly designed and can have loose connections internally.

Another possible issue is the motor brushes. Mine once failed and it turned out to be a corroded spring on the brush; easily repaired with a spring from an old biro.

By the way the correct term is compressor so to avoid inviting fury from the illuminati it is advisable to use this term exclusively.

Woa, woa! £36.00 via eBay; it's far too precious to sell!

If you can't find a 'correct' one, then 997 generation auto hobby compressors (<== really??) are readily available on eBay. They don't look much different and more usefully incorporate the pressure gauge, which saves a lot of faffing about. That's water-cooled progress for you 👍
