    The pump was a separate purchase.

    You have what you need, plus an extra control knob.

    Looks like a project.

    Do a search on the bay of evil, and one will eventually pop up. Basecamp may have them. Check it out.

    As I thought, a quick search on the bay, seeking “svea 123 pump and cap” will yield several good choices for you. Good luck, and have fun!

    Very nice, your work is done. You have a one of a kind original as found stove. If you restore it will look like several million others.

    The stove really does not require the pump unless you intend to use it in extremely cold conditions.

    Cheers

    You should restore the case, however. The rust is past what would be considered “”surface rust”, and will soon (if not already) be holes. Simplest is to brush loose rust and paint flakes off with a wire brush, and then treat with some phosphoric acid treatment, like Ospho. That will turn the exposed metal dark gray or black, and will leave a sticky residue (which can be washed off) on the remaining paint. You should not put phosphoric acid on brass or aluminum, so stove should be removed from the case before doing this. This will stop the rust, and you can then decide if you want to paint.

    Do you mean the steel needle itself?

    If it’s burred or chipped, smooth it with 800 grit wet and dry paper. I always clean the tip of the needle this way as well to put a little point on it.

    No the needle is not rising so I think the cogs are broken on the needle block

    Those cogs look fine to me.

    1. Is that rack the same size as the one you took out?

    2. If it is jamming, you might need to file some of the square edges at the back of the rack (not the cogs themselves.

    3. If it is not rising, but the wheel is turning, it’s not seated correctly.

    Have you removed the jet and checked the needle?
    Some people remove the cleaning needle as a way to improve performance (it may or may not).
    If it is there, it may be possible to remove the needle block while opening the valve counter(anti)clockwise with the jet removed and the stove inverted. If the cogs on the needle block are indeed damaged, you may want to just leave it out until you can remove and inspect the spindle cogs as well.

    @itchy just got the needle block out and it is ok. So next is to remove the spindle and check it looks OK from what i can see after removing the needle
    The problem was the needle was not rising. Maybe the previous owner over tighten or loosened the valve. I noticed the valve key was twisted so he used too much force on
