You need to make some adapter to get from the pump into the air line - I just used a sports/ball fill needle and cut the end off of it. The needle is the right size to hold an air line without needing the barbs. The threaded end of the sports needle goes into your pump.

No pictures here, so I hope that makes sense.
It all makes sense. Thank you.
