When using an air pump to inflate a ball, where should you put the ''pin''--should you make a hole in the ball (where the plug is?) or should you just stick the pump into the plug?

How do I know how much air to put in my exercise ball when I fill it?


The most precise way to know that you have enough air in your exercise ball is to measure the height of the ball once it has been inflated. The easiest way to accomplish this is to make a very small pencil mark on the wall (equivalent to that of the proper size of your ball), then inflate your ball with the pump provided until the top of the ball matches the mark on the wall.

How To Pump Up A Soccer Ball?


To watch an instructional video on how to pump up a soccer ball follow this linkhttp://youtu.be/SK1PohTCJj8

According to FIFA the pressure inside a soccer ball must be of a pressure equal to 0.6 -- 1.1 atmosphere (600 -- 1,100 g/cm2) at sea
level (8.5 lbs/sq in -- 15.6 lbs/sq in)
When inflating the ball, use a small pump and pressure gauge. Avoid using high pressure pumps made for cars and motorcycle tires, which can easily over-inflate and damage your ball.

The rubber pump on the Sunbeam BP Monitor we have now has a hole on the ruber pump. Super glue did not hold it together. Is there anything we can do w/o buying another Digital B/P Meter, Model 7622? A...

I believe you will need something like that ..It is used normally for fixing holes in sports balls ..and if it works for balls under pressure ..it will work on the pump as well...I think it is a synthetic rubber solution ..that adheres on the original one ...(I think it has to be inserted in the interior ..side..with a syringe ...) My advice is to detach the pump before insert the solution ..(read the user guide) ..and this way you should be able to blow air inside from the end you detached ..and seal it proper in the hole..

I have the BS-1D Serfas bicycle pump - I need a basic instruction manual as I am having difficulty pumping air into my tire- I think I am not locking into the valve correctly.


I can't find the manual for this one, but most pumps lof this kind work like this:

1) push down over the valve (using the large hole for large valves(Shraeder valves like car ones) and small hole for Presta valves (little screw in kind -must be unscrewed to pump). You might have to be fairly firm with it
2) raise the thumb lock lever (opposite the valve) so it points up
3) pump till inflated
4) release thumb lock
5) pull off pump

If that doesn't work, then your pump may be defective.

How do i use the schwinn airdriver 1100 pump


This pump is a bit strange to use. The valve in the filler head is odd in that it controls the flow of air in both direction...which is not a great design in my opinion...but it does allow for use in different filling applications. The trick is getting the pump into its different filling "modes"

For a Schrader bike valve:
1. Make sure the pump is in "tire mode" by blowing into the valve with your mouth. If you then pump the handle you should feel air filling your mouth.
2. Put the "locking lever" in the unlocked position, the unlocked position is when the silver metal lever is parallel to the air hose, or said another way it makes an "L" with the air outlet that goes on the tire air filling stem. To verify this is correct, look in the air outlet and move the lever from locked to un-locked, you will see slight change in the diameter of the outlet.
3. Push the air filler hole over the schrader valve really hard and make sure it is seated all the way down. Close the "locking lever" (silver metal lever should now be perpendicular to the air house and be in line with the air outlet... i.e. point straight out away from the tire filler stem.
4. Pump.

For a Presta bike valve:
1. Make sure the pump is in "tire mode" again.
2. Take off plastic caps off presta valves on bike tire.
3. Unscrew the little nut on the presta stem to allow the tire valve to open when pressure is applied (you can test this by pushing the stem in a little and air should escape, the nut holds the valve closed, so it needs to be loosened).
4. Take the adapter from the locking lever (silver metal lever) on the pump and screw it on the presta valve. The adapter is the brass looking thing. Screw the rubber gasketed side down on the presta valve.
5. Press the air pump tire filler outlet onto the adapter.
6. Close the locking lever to seal the filler head on the adapter.
7. Pump.
8. Unlock the locking lever and pull it off quickly.
9. Unscrew the presta adapter and screw down the presta valve nut but just finger tight.
10. Screw on the plastic cover cap for the presta valve.

To Fill a Ball:
1. Twist the ball pin filler out by rotating the gray plastic tab around until the ball pin filler is pointing straight out (in-line with the air hose).
2. Make sure the pump is in "Ball mode" by again blowing into the filler. Sometimes shaking the filler valve really hard is necessary.
3. Put the filler pin into a ball.
4. Pump.

Hope this helps.

When I'm pumping it up the ball sticks and will not inflate. I hear air coming out from the ball you squeeze.


If this is happening when the finger valve is closed, there is a leak either in the rubber tubing or the inflation bulb. Try putting soapy water on the tubing and then on the bulb. Squeeze the bulb with just your thumb and forefinger, so that you can see any air bubbles. If the leak is in the rubber tubing, you may be able to repair it with a couple of laps of vinyl tape. If the bulb is leaking, that will have to be replaced.

Hope this helps you solve the problem.

How to inflate the shake & monkey rattle ball?


Look for a plug on the plastic ball, it may be under the monkey fabric cover. Pull plug and blow air in just like inflating a small beach ball. Re-insert plug to seal.

How do you inflate a Bicycle tire with the small portable pump? the air is coming from the needle to inflate balls and not from the nozzle. It is a Schwinn small portable bicycle pump.


Usually, the needle used to inflate balls is an attachment to the pump. Is there a lever near the fitting the needle comes out of? Moving the lever 90 degrees from its current position should allow you to pull the needle attachment out. The hole the needle came out of is where the valve stem from your tire goes to pump the tire up. Jam the stem in the hole, crank the lever back to lock it in and pump away. Unlock the lever to release the stem when the tire's inflated and you're golden.

Where is check ball valve on my 1982 electaglide


The check ball valve is in the oil pump. When you look at the top of the oil pump, the check ball is under the innermost threaded plug, the low one, not the high one. You will have to drain the oil tank before you remove this ball. Take out the plug, the sping, and use a magnet to remove the ball. Buy two new balls, they aren't expensive.
Now, drop on of the new balls into the hole. Take a brass drift and a hammer and gently tap on the ball. This will reform the seat that the ball sits in. Remove this ball and install the other new ball, spring, and threaded plug. Refill the oil tank.
Then, remove the crankcase breather line from the rear of the air cleaner. Plug the hole in the rear plate of the air cleaner. Purchase one of the small breather filters (/V-Twin #40-0352) and put it in the end of the crankcase breather hose and relocate the breather underneath the bike.

Bought a newwprosport fitness ball from Target. no instructions


You just use a pump with a pointy nozzle, even an air compressor with the tip for inflating rafts and inflatables. You should fill it with enough air so that it is firm when you sit on it, but it should still have about 2" of give. (knee's @ a 90 degree angle when sitting on the ball). Hope this helps!
