Here is a full picture of what the stove looks like at the moment Here is the stamp located on the burner In my small bit of research, I thought the best way to progress with this stove would be to see if it creates pressure in the tank. It does not. I unscrewed the pump mechanism from the tank and the first thing I noticed was the gasket that holds between the pump and the fuel tank is dried and broken. Looking further into the pump I found extra pips that, in my inexperienced eyes, are dry and brittle. Also, the leather pump cup is quite dry. Here is a shot of the pump and all its innards. For now, I have some alcohol in the tank and I fashioned a make shift cap from a piece of plastic bag, a couple of neoprene washers and the screw on cap. I'm hoping the alcohol will dissolve any varnish left by the old fuel. I am also slowly feeding the leather pump cup with neatsfoot oil because it is dry and brittle. I'm hoping it might come back into shape and might be useable as a spare. I do have a new leather pump cup coming as well. This thing looks as if it's been used and then sitting for some time. I'd like to start by getting things nice and tidy as I possibly can. I ordered a couple of M-1942 stove pump washer kits from Fettlebox with graphite tape for valve packing. I'm hoping that my valve packing is fine as is. From what I've read, if the packing has to be repaired, that particular repair can be a weak point in the stove. I suppose I will continue to clean the fuel tank with alcohol and leave everything else as is until the washer kit gets here. The thing that has me kind of worried is this part I found in the pump I'm not sure what to call it. Is this a generator? It looks like it has a graphite bushing around it that is crumbling. The black specks in the white box are what I believe to be extra pips (also look as if they are made of graphite). Are these all extra parts or do they function somehow within the pump? Is there anything else (cleaning or checking) I can be doing now while I am waiting for parts? I was thinking I could clean the burner top with some throttle body cleaner. That stuff rips through caked on soot fairly easily Sorry for all the questions and my ineptitude at naming the correct parts and their functions. This is my first camp stove and I'd very much like to learn about and get some use out of it. I have a feeling this won't be my first and last stove. I repair/restore old tobacco pipes as a hobby. This small scale of careful repair and detail is what love to do. When I came across this forum and looked into it, I knew this was the right place for me by all the detail and care you folks put into your stoves. Thanks again!
