    I just found this stove yesterday at an antique shop. When I picked it up, I thought it would be way over-priced but found that the owner was trying to give it away for $16USD. Yes, I was stunned and quite happy! What made it a nice find was the multi-tool and the extra spare parts in the pump shaft and the parts bin that is attached to the pot support.

    Replaced the NRV pip with a new one and put a nitrile O-ring on the pump shaft to seal the fuel tank. Oiled the existing pump leather and fired it up.

    Stove: US M-1942
    Manufactured By: Prentiss Wabers (PW)
    Date: 1945
    Burns: Coleman Fuel/Gasoline

    Here are some shots of the pump parts in this M-1942. The O-ring is the only item that is not original, which is a flat gasket instead. Hope this helps...
