    My first Enders stove.
    I got this a few weeks ago. This is the condition I received it. The tank still had fuel in it. Dirty brown fuel you can see below. And that is after running it through a Coleman fuel filter.
    The wrench will remove all except the spirit cup. That nut is recessed.
    All looks good except for 2 pips (filler cap and pump), filler cap gasket, and a pump tube gasket.
    Where can I get these?

    I have read that the hardened seal may be keeping the pump from coming apart ... is that correct?
    I don't want to pry until I can know that for sure.

    Here you go .. the pictures,

    Ken,
    Congratulations, you are the proud owner of a little dynamo of a stove. :D/ These are fantastic to use backpacking or as a glove box stove in your vehicle. I fetteled mine back to life just last night. :D The nut on the bottom of the burner stem holding on the spirit cup is presumably a 10mm nut, a common socket should be enough to snug it down. The funnel is a most prized accessory and you are fortunate to still have it with your Baby. Being that there was fuel still inside and it had discolored, you might want to replace the wick otherwise it will just not work. The tank on these older Enders' are steel and are prone to rust. Just as there is a pip in the NRV, there is a similar pip inside the fuel cap which is a safety valve which releases if there is an over pressure condition with your stove. If the safety pip does not seal correctly, the stove will not pressurize or support a flame.
    Sefa sells a superb washer and pump cup kit through evil bay and his are even better than original. I look forward to seeing some flame shots of your baby Enders!

    Thank you.
    Sefa also has them listed in our services offered forum. I contacted him last week.

    Hey, Ken,

    Those Enders Baby stoves are outstanding, and will earn a warm place in your heart!! Here are some photos of a rebuild I did on one of my Enders Baby stoves. The write-up is posted somewhere here on CCS, and I can look it up if you want to skinny on this. But, this will show you what I did to rebuild mine, and it's still working like a champ.

    These little Baby Enders can put out some cooking power, but you have to be careful about pot size, as a really large one can easily cause the SRV to blow. I've not experienced that, but it "could" happen. Again, congrats on your new Baby, and God Bless!

    Every Good Wish,
    Doc

    I had found your post in a search. And I think it was the first place I noticed that the pump parts came apart.

    Thanks,
    Ken

    Hey, Ken,

    HUmmmm..... :-k :-k :-s I don't remember it being that way, but if Bryan says it's so, I would definitely be inclined to give strong credence to his comments. I can dig mine out, and give it a peek, but I trust Bryan's opinion on such things. Take care, and God Bless!

    Every Good Wish,
    Mark

    The pump tube came apart as soon as I got the hardened gasket out. (Thanks John) I just saw Doc's post as I came back inside.

    Then I put the tube in the lathe and cleaned the rust off of it with steel wool.
    I have both pips, filler cap and pump, replaced, as they are the same size as pips for the Swedish stoves I have.
    I am soaking the tank joint with KANO KROIL to see if I can remove the tube and replace the wick. When looking into the tank the wick looks quite brown, and would be wise to be replaced.
    The graphite packing looks great.
    I got the pump cup to hold some 3-in-one oil and when replaced into the tube it seemed to pump air. I think it is on its last leg, so an order from Sefa is on my short list.

    All I need are gaskets for the filler cap and the pump tube. If I don't get a reply here, I may have to post in the wanted section. (I really ought to get a set of punches)and some viton.

    If it does end up holding pressure, I will then clean it up better, and fire it up.

    Hi Ken, you've got yourself a champion my friend! It is my favorite Enders stove and one of the best small size stoves I know. You'll love it! :D/ :clap: :lol:

    All the best,

    Wim

    I cleaned it up and replaced the wick.
    The pump cup does in fact pump air, but without washers I cannot hold pressure. So, all is done except the washers.
    Here are a few pics.

    I tried to measure the dimensions where the washers go.
    Pump washer:
    OD .. .835" (21.21 mm)
    ID .. .630" (16 mm)
    Filler Cap Washer:
    OD .. ..680" (17.27 mm)
    ID .. ..465" (11.81 mm)
    Funnel Washer:
    OD .. .650" (16.5 mm)
    ID .. .472" (12 mm)
