If you have the older revision DV that was diaphragm based perhaps some of the rubber is damaged.

I swapped out my old DV for the Rev D piston type DV after going stage 2. My old one was not...

Luckily I was taught both in public school, so I am familiar with it, but of course everything in Canada is metric. It makes more sense to me than imperial system.
