    How to fix 2003-2006 Rubicon air locker pumps

    The factory locker air pumps are made out of plastic, so the air line nipples snap off really easy. I know from experience.
    So when you find your self in this situation you have two options: 1. Buy a new one. OR 2. Fix the one you have. This is what i did fix mine.
    5/32'' brass tube
    1/8" barbed nylon coupling
    Tap & Die
    Super glue

    Use the _ size die and make threads onto the brass tube long enough to go into both the pump and the barbed coupling.
    Be sure to use a tiny bit of super glue for strength, but DO NOT block the air way. See pics below.

    Nice repair. Should outlast the pump.

    Holy $%^&! An actual technical/repair thread! We have not seen one of these posted on the forum in ages.
