Not that I think that any of this is the source of your problem. I don't see how something like faulty cores would prevent you from going beyond 40psi and the likelihood of two pump gauges being in agreement, while being so wildly wrong, is exceptionally low.

edit: one thing that you could try immediately, just to rule out the cores, is to remove the core and inflate to see if you still hit a wall at 40. All of the air is going to rush out when you disconnect the pump head, obviously, so be sure to keep the valve away from the pooling sealant inside.
