I doubt the old pump is putting out too much PSI sounds to me like something in the needle and seats not letting them shut. or just badly adjusted float levels.

I was gonna say that we used to pinch the rubber line from the tank to the pump till the whole shabang was bone dry, then we cranked the thing over and sometimes pressure would be enough to blow anything in the seats out, (sometimes)

course that was a long time ago we used to do that
