Just finished my Akron/ Sears lamp, putting it away and noticed things were loose.  In straightening parts yesterday I may have put too much force into lining the burner tubes up with the air tube.  The air tube is a fairly snug fit still, but may leak too much to run cleanly.  Leave, have a friend braze it or?  Too tight a fit to wrap with muffler tape unless it sticks to the outside.
I spent quite a bit of time freeing up the plugged genny tip, finally used a torch and burnt out whatever was there.  Hate to sideline this.

Guessing it is brass.  Maybe repaired before, some slight amount of solder.  Silver solder possible by me?

Looks like a welding shop job to me, Duane.  Silver brazing will do it if it can be cleaned well enough and has not been contaminated by common  5% silver bearing solder.  Otherwise, a welder can braze it with some regular brazing rod.

Thank you Dean.  Mixing my models up, it is a Akron/Monkey Ward.  The one the other day was a AGM/Sears.

No call back from two guys I called, may go ahead and silver solder, I picked up a new torch that can burn MAPP gas.  The burner just sits there, exposed to the heat that comes off the mantles.

Duane, when you say "silver solder", exactly what alloy are you talking about?  The soft stuff you get at the hardware store?  Not what you want.  You need real silver brazing alloy.  At least 15% silver.  45% to 56% is better as it flows at a manageable temp that mapp gas will produce.

Dean, good stuff, not for a broken part, just rejoining a joint.  My new swirl torch should work, unlike my old for propane only torch which wouldn't get parts hot enough.

Harris products are indeed good stuffs meant for professionals. Kind of pricey too. If the MAPP does not heat it up enough, an oxy-acetylene welding torch, adjusted right, would do it quicker and better.

If the parts have a close fit up, you might look at some of the silver solder paste that jewelers use like below. Big torches with small parts can be tedious.

I'm rejoining the air tube and mixing chamber, see above pic.  Not sure if one surface needs to be tinned or I can flux the pieces and flow the solder into the joint.  My propane torch could never heat parts enough to work with the silver solder, so this new torch should do the trick.  I've repaired a few of my small Euro stoves with my old torch, so this new torch should be a treat.

I have seen those syringe packaged types of silvered alloys. These are blended together with the right amount of suitable fluxes. They're neat and could be applied to just the intended spot. Its probably easier to use these if spaces are tight and with delicate parts. They'll melt and wet over the intended metal parts once sufficiently heated with less tendency of flowing all over to adjacent areas. Perhaps these could be handy for anyone who's not particularly skilfull with the torch as opposed to conventional brazing, which in some ways, an art that requires a fair amount of practice to produce anything decent.

That's the stuff, Duane.  That is silver braze, not silver solder. 
You will need to get the parts VERY clean.  Use a wire wheel on your grinder or Dremel until all of the carbon and any other schmutz is gone. 
If you can't get it hot enough with just the mapp torch, put your propane torch on it too.  Between the two of them they should do it.  When ever I silver braze anything with that much mass I use two torches.  A mapp and a regular propane.
Put flux on both pieces and put them together.  The piece will get almost red before the flux turns to what looks like water.  Then it about hot enough to flow the silver. 
Good luck!
