    I have had a Pimus Century 2 burner propane camp stove for about 30 years that I bought new. It has worked fine until recently when it started leaking fuel from the regulator (see attached photos) that screws into the propane canister. Does anyone know where I may obtain a replacement regulator for my stove?

    Where is it leaking, the valve, or gasket?

    Gary, May have luck repurposing a valve from a stove propane adaptor. These are made by Century and might have same thread size. May be a hit or miss deal. Not sure if the modern day adaptors have compatible thread size. Coleman made on/off propane valves and from what I have tried they don't match thread size with primus items.
    John, I do believe new gaskets are available and by adding some additional packing to valve stem should seal it up there.
