I obtained a rusty, crusty JC Higgins ( made by AGM?) stove. I got the pump to work and pass air, but tank looses the air over time. I haven't done a dunk test yet. I changed o ring with what I had on hand, and punched out a new pip from BuNa N. My pips looks like hourglasses though. So far my half assed attempt has failed. Can someone supply me with the needed gaskets? I want to get this burning before I commit to stripping and paint.

Definitely AGM with those valve wheels. LCS-21 clone I think. I had a Kamp Kook like it. You know the black valve is opened at start up to pull fount air then closed to run?

That are no LCS-21, I have one of those in Higgy regalia (blue LCS-21 is 710.74030 - might this be a LCS-41?)...  that said, the valve wheel might be AGM - but then how do you explain the valve wheel on the blue/orange stoves built by Coleman for Sears?  I was thinking left-hand fuel feed is a Preway thang, and I see that AGM likes that too.  (I have PW gaskets, there'll be some in the eelvelope)

[I have never seen a PW or AGM stove in person, I am not 100% sure. My internet research says its a AGM, King Steely, Thermos... what ever maker of that year stove. My educated guess is AGM.
My JC Higgins Lantern though is made by Unimet from British  Hong Kong.

So you have the 388.74001.  I have the 710.  which is AGM.  (BTW in the Sears scheme 710 is a manufacturer code, happens to be AGM.  So not PW.)  Currently open on the bench, waiting for the Kroil to take hold or cut loose or whatever.  No LRL to go with it though.  (Niiiiice LRL you have there!)

My tablesaw (103.27270) was made by the King-Seeley Thermos Corp in 1954.  Huh.  I just discovered that I have a rare bird there, too.  Thanks, Internet...

AGM-King-Seely (Thermos) is the last AGM iteration of the company before they went totally "Thermos" until 1971 or '72. 

It is AGM not PW. I own a couple. Preway was out of the camp stove business by then. Korean War (1950) was their Waterloo. They may have had some camper stove business after that but that petered out as well.

Dave, the valve on the left (black) is air, not fuel. No FA tube in these. If the OP is not closing that after warm up, it will suck all the fount air.

Thats good info. So far no attempt at light up. Tank is leaking air.

I have the same stove. Mine leaked at the soldered joint around the pump tube. I ended up sealing the tank with Caswell’s. Be sure to pull the valve and fuel pickup before you try to seal it. Mine works fine now and no longer leaks.
