    Say, that's a nice stove...

    Lame Terminator II references aside, it really is a nice stove. I like it.

    I have 3 Hipolito stoves: a 1 (an NIB 1 3/4 pinter from Base Camp many moons ago), an 0 (a pristine beauty in the truly great tin), and a 2 like Pablo's, but with regulated burner. I have used the 2 a lot over the years.

    The Hipolitos are fine stoves, and their graphics are right up there with the best.

    Good post.

    I have a #2 that I bought in 1972. But I'm having trouble building pressure in tank. I have the silent burner.

    Hi @Punch, welcome to CCS.

    Several possibilities:

    Is the pump working? Empty out the fuel, put you thumb over the filler and pump. If the tank pressurises you know the pump is OK.

    Next replace the filler cap. Pressurise the tank, then immerse the tank in a bucket of water. Bubbles should form at any leak site.

    The filler cap is a likely leak site. If the rubber gasket has hardened it will not make a good seal, so needs to be replaced.

    Let us know what you find and come back for cures.
    Best Regards,
    Kerophile.

    The non-return valve finally cleared enough to allow pressure to build in the tank. This after soaking it with liquid wrench and excercizing the pump over and over. After awhile vapor spray pattern out of jet gets upset and stove erupts in fire or snuffs out. Jet 46 years old. It's actually a Hippolito 1

    How do you get a new filler cap seal to fit behind center piece with air hole in it?

    @Punch

    Look for seals at The Fettle Box (link on this home page).

    Hi Punch. I do not fully understand your question.

    1. There is a filler cap on your Hipolito through which you put fuel in the tank. Thia filler has a viton or nitrile flat rubber seal. As @Tony Press has advised you, Fettlebox can supply a seal, or you can perhaps make one.

    2. There is also a cap on top of the pump cylinder, through which the pump rod operates. There is no seal on this cap as the pump has to be able to suck air in when pumping up air pressure in the the fuel tank.

    Best Regards,
    Kerophile.

    Hi @Punch, if you need to remove old hard rubber washers from filler caps before replacing them:
