Tap lightly on the top of the boss where the hole is for the pin to tighten up the hole. That or take a tiny prick punch and make a small dent under the pin when it's installed to tighten up the hole.
Other options include using a slightly oversized roll pin (be sure and drill out the hole in the pump arm so it doesn't bind up), or if the hole isn't too loose, just a little bit of Loctite may be enough to hold the pin in there.

Hope that helps.
