your LBS should have a little drawer filled with assorted washers etc, but you can also get a new complete locking head from RJ Chicken. I did a year or so ago for the exact same pump.

it's a peculiar washer if i remember rightly - side on it looks like a "T" shape with the top of the T being where you plug it on to the valve and is the entire depth of the brass outer case that holds it.

hmm...

It's a standard SKS presta washer. Used on thousands of pumps.

If you want a new locking head, you can get it directly from RJ Chicken, the SKS distributor in the UK. The SKS locking head is also a standard part for SKS floor pumps. It comes with the hose and screws into the base of the pump.

I have the same pump and converted the head a year or two ago, but you can also find the washer for the old brass head in an old-fashioned UK bike shop.

edit: if north ayreshire doesn't have any bike shops, you can also get the washer through the post from, for example:

The washer on the locking head will probably last longer, but replacing the original washer is a lot cheaper.
