Yea I give up on it. After a looong phone conversation were i was transferred 4 times and finally hung up on. They couldnt even give me the specks on the springs but, ohwell i didnt pay for the pump anyhow and I know what brand not to buy in the futur.
They are throw away pumps these days. They screwed me on a leak detector too. I would go with Yellow Jacket as they sell parts or Vanes anyway.
Also, the last time I looked on ebay there were tons of broken Robinair pumps for parts. You might try that and keep checking if nothing is there now. Most of those pumps have bad vanes so chances are good they have the spring you need.
Thank you but like I said... I wash my hands of it.
You want it? Pay for shipping its yours.
Thanks but Im done with Robinair too. I already have a yellow Jacket and just waiting for the Robinair to crap out. I will never buy their products again.
