bump maps not working on all faces

I applied a bump map to this geometry. but only some faces are "bumping" others just a little, others not at all, and some have a bump gradient. the real funny thing is that textures plugged to the color node work perfect. i even plugged the bump maps to the color nodes and they show up nicely but when they get plugged to the bump theres a problem. I traced the problem to the geometry because i used the maps on other geometry and they work nicely. and no bump maps work on correctly. but there are not overlapping faces and all normals are facing the right direction. can any one help please?

Can you upload the scene (just with the geometry that dosen´t work), along with the texture (just in case).

are the normals on the geometry all correctly pointed outward?

Are the UV's layed out correctly?
