Ok, you're going to need some CF, a couple of mantles and likely a generator. My Guess is it's a 134, match lighting (preheat the generator). And a cap gasket of course

looks like one of the burner screens is missing as well.

EDIT: maybe it's just smoooshed up in there a bit, can maybe see it.

Burner tube screen too unless it just shows dark in the picture. and maybe a good cleaning of the cap seal surface. Hard to tell in the pic. Did you do a dunk test for leaks

Could well be but I can't tell if the knob has the disc?

My only experience with a damaged and partially missing screen was on a 200A and the flame would occasionally back up into the mixing chamber and it was not good. but my screen was damaged and very thin wires so might overheat and aggravate the flame back up

Ok so may I ask what a CF is? Gen is on there with the two screens. One was replaced a few yrs. back then I was side tracked onto something else, happens a lot w/me lol.
 Am posting the picture of the knob for you all . Ok will fount can come a part to help with cleaning and a new gasket?  Am thinking I need a bracket above the mixing chamber for a glass globe ( also need).
The knob has no disk, just close on raised letters and a arrow mailKKK.jpg  mailHHH.jpg

CF is just an abbreviation for Coleman or Crown fuel.

>>Gen is on there with the two screens.

I don't know what this means.  If you actually have a screen or two in the generator, remove and dispose.  If you mean the burners both have screens, we see them now and that is good.  As far as fount disassembly is concerned, I would only do this if you can get no air to come through the valve after pumping it up.  There's no gasket there for you to replace.    Get the lamp going and then pursue and additional parts needed to put on a globe and/or shade.

Don't be bashful.  You can take a picture of the whole lamp and post it.  🙂

Depending on the model you may (probably is my guess) have to treat it like your 427, preheat the generator. You won't need a 355 globe just to burn it, 1st things 1st

Ok well I fueled the lamp up, And starting pumping. Then I noticed a leak . So I took it apart and took the wooden handle off. Put it back together and pumped it up. This is what I found crack1.jpg  mailleak1.jpg  mailleak2.jpg  maillleak3.jpg

So that explains the solder pcs inside the fount. Should I try to seal it up? I know how some guys think the best way is fill it up with plaster paris and use it as a paper weight? Any suggestions?

If it's just the seal there, that's not a compromised fount so not a paper weight.   What I would do is remove all the fuel, expose the openings (leave the burner off and remove the fuel cap) and put in front of a fan for a week or two to dry it out and remove all traces of fumes.  Then clean up the area thoroughly, and re-solder it using a butane torch.  Of course you want to inspect the inside of the fount, especially the base, for rust.  But if it's just the seal at the top of the fount, that's not a fount sealer application.  At least not until it's repaired.

I might go as far as getting some gunsmith's heat stop paste

Put a ring around the bung to protect the nickle and heat it up, pull that piece out, clean up all the old solder and redo it right. That would last that lamp the next 100 years.

The "ring" on this BQ gooseneck is all solder and that's what is leaking on yours (appears to me). You'll have to heat it, pull it out, clean the old solder off and CLEAN everything up good. Then stick it back in and with it fluxed good heat and fill with solder. One way to make sure nothing downwards overheats is to put some liquid in the fount, CF would be contraindicated 😮
Water works fine and Can be removed from the fount later, dont fill it too high and have it bubbling up where you're trying to build that solder dam. 
Hopefully other, better solderists will chime in Click image for larger version - Name: 20191118_144408_resized.jpg, Views: 134, Size: 104.54 KB

this was originally soldered from the inside before the bottom plate was put on . if you heat up upright all the inner solder falls to the bottom , like you said . that said all it needs a new solder job there .

Well I can't find the right Dia. for the Fount. Have heated it up twice and so far all I can do is get it to spin( fuel pick up tube) By chance is it flared ? I don't want use to much heat, It will fall apart .

There is likely a washer installed on the inside before it was soldered in place . Just solder it as is .
