Sorry no flame shots, took ages to clean it Cheers
Pump & Spares
Good 'un! I'd wager it was fight to clean it up, stainless is a dog to get a shine on, and I think the steel was treated to take the gloss off it to start with!
I see you've also got the decal intact, didn't get mucked up in the process. Mine's a bit knackered, Old Coleman Parts has a replacement, but it's a peel and stick, not a water slide like the original one.
I used Autosol and a dremal, the tank just needed a wipe over on the top, it made it easier as i had it in bits at the time, i searched for a long time to find one with the decal intact.
The decal was the least of my problems, here you see them with bits and tits missing, sods want a fortune for them!
Missing canister, no wrench, wooden knob gone, plastic valve knob buggered up, and they all want the big quid for 'em, or if they don't, you get it across the throat in shipping!
I can always get the one from OCP, scan it on the computer and print it on blank water slide paper, you'd be hard pressed to say it wasn't OEM, done right.
I need help rebuilding my pump!
Same bits as a M1950, takes all of five minutes!
What's buggered on your pump?
