Honwave T40 - Cant inflate!?

Hi all,

I've just bought a Honwave T40 and the tubes and keel are way under pressure and need some air! I've tried to pump them up with the foot pump that came with the boat (is un-used and is the genuine Honda pump with the Halkey Roberts type valve etc) but I cant get it to seal on the valve of the boat. No matter what I do I cant get it to seal and there's more air coming out than I can get it there! Any advice would be greatly appreciated.....

Has anyone else had this issue and do I need a connecting piece or additional 'washer' etc?

Thanks in advance.

Mark

Hi & welcome. If it's a genuine Honwave it's a simple bayonet twist fit, only the aftermarket ones sold as replacements require fitting of washers. There should be no need to depress and twist the centre of the valve to inflate only to deflate.
Can you post a picture of the end that you're using ?

ID:	121026 this fitting works on my honwave no bother, just checking but you've got the knurled centre pin in the closed position right?

Push in clockwise twist (bayonet like)to open, push in anti clockwise twist to close

Centre of the valve seals with internal pressure pushing outwards, let's forced air go in via pumpClick image for larger version

Looks identical to mine. The valve should seal itself automatically. I've no answer to why it isn't unless the centre is depressed and not functioning. If you look online these things are usually very simple & reliable. I use one of the Sevylor 12 v electric pumps for speed but the foot pump is a good standby.

Looking at the picture of your pump,the hose is attached to the in section.l think to inflate you connect to the hole marked lp (low pressure) for the tubes then to hp (high pressure) if you have a high pressure floor.
The (in) l think is to deflate, or suck.
Just a thought?

Sometimes lubricating the centre of the valve with some silicon spray lube helps it seal properly

Honwave T40 - Cant inflate!?

Get yourself a two stage Bravo BST12 HP pump, its all I ever used on my Honwave. Takes 10 mins to full working pressure and makes inflating a pleasure not a chore.
Never used my foot pump!
Here's a link to one :-

https://www.mailspeedmarine.com/brav...-bst-12hp.html

They do a version with built in battery too, the BST12HPBATT for inflating away from the car.

If it's a HR valve make sure you don't need the adaptor that has the extended lugs.

Thanks All. I've ordered an adaptor cos somebody said there were two different length 'nozzles' - hopefully that's the same as you're saying Jambo
