Latching on my Track Pump

I have a Park Tool Track Pump, had it for years - it has proved to be robust and stood the test of time but I have always struggled to get it to latch onto the valve correctly. It usually takes around 4 attempts of attachment per valve before I get a connection and even then, it only clicks and connects after repeated depressions with air blowing out the side of the valve.

Is it just this make of pump that is awkward? I unsrew the nipple to maximum out, then place the valve over the top, push it down and lift the lever - usually when I start pumping you just get air pissing out the side of the valve, after repeated attempts you eventually get lucky and it will click and connect.
