Thanks to help from rsterne, lauchlin, bribiguy, Ace, and Arden, my C1400 is back in action and looking good.
Here's a shot of my valve and and the new cup I got from RG Airguns. I'm using the photo from rsterne's post.

I have a minor issue with the pump handle not staying up after a while.
I wonder if the length of the pump cup rod needs adjusting.
Thanks for all the help and for taking a look at my reborn rifle.

notec/jonathan,
That is a fine collection, I must say, and thanks for the compliment.
I worked on the stock refinish and barrel/tube re-blue for quite a while.

lauchlin,
I will try that adjustment.
Thanks for the advice.

notec/jonathan,
You must be one trigger-happy dude.
Impressive!


lauchlin,
About 1/8 of an inch did the trick.
Now I can put the roll pin back in... been using a small bolt to hold the handle.
Thanks very much.
