    Go to Old Coleman Parts (OCP). Mike (the owner) sells a M1950 rebuild kit. Your problem, is a small O-ring inside the stove. You will have to remove the burner from the fount to replace the O-ring. Go to the Coleman Collector's Forum, use the search feature and you'll find disassembly tutorials and discussions with lots of pictures. There may also be a parts diagram on the OCP site. The kit is only a few $ and the stove is well worth rebuilding.

    Also check your NRV seal, page 2-5, item 17, this is essential for stopping it urinating Naptha everywhere. :thumbup: :content:
