I recently picked up an m1942 stove in great condition minus for the fount not holding air/fuel. The seam between the bottom and sides of the fount is broken. Is it better to silver solder this or weld it. A buddy of mine can do either. All the parts are there and all extras were in the pump. The outer part of the pump may need to be replaced as it's slightly bent. Everything else looks fantastic. Picture shows the problem.
