Wanted to cut back on (tiny) binding here:

So cut a delrin spacer for here:

This lifts the cocking arm up just a fraction to essentially eliminate any slight catching. Pump resistance increases just a touch, but because it is delrin it does not become rough/binding or anything like that. Slightly heavier but smoother stroke as a result.
The heat shrink isn't a bad idea!

Not sure why the pump arm is hitting that screw head It should have the same clearance as the guide screw. Measure the shank length if you have a chance.
