when I try to pump it up, very little pressure is built. It seems to not

Try some WD 40 sprayed into the cylinder to lubricate it and try

the pump comes apart. it has some o rings in it. either they rotted out or
need lubrication. do so with some silicone based grease. there's also a
check valve in the pump. it could have gone bad with heat and time. this
isn't replicable.
