Found another lamp for just a few dollars. After looking the fuel tube was beyond repair.
The pictures show what I have done. Does this look like a fix that will work.

I’m a former drip under pressure so consider that first.
Did you cut off the PU and rethread?

Either way, shut the valve pump it up and dunk test it!

Thank you
Kevin
I frighten easily!

My current shade is Coleman!!

To me a lamp without a shade is creepy!

If the nut that holds the handle down will hold the handle down and still allow the valve to go on, that should work fine. Just seal all the joints up.

Etch your name in the tubing so 80 years from now, the collector will know who to thank for caring so much for their lamp.

Thanks for the replys.  The handle fits over the splice. The nickle trim had to be opened a little.

Yes I cut the original PU and threaded it.

Sealed with loctite.

Past the dunk test. It's pumped will wait a while to see if it looses pressure. 

We will see if I measured right for the nut.

I will fire it up later. Pretty happy for 5 bucks.

  • I did not remove the anything from the fount. The top threads were damaged. So I cut off the damaged threads and rethreaded the top of the PU tube. Then used a coupler and a short nipple to bring it back to the right height.

Well done! I hope you used a fairly high-melting-point solder for that. That part doesn't usually get too hot, but.... Did you mention the fire inspector?

No solder just not threads. Been running about an hour. No bad result yet. Fingers crossed. This will be an outside lamp. Click image for larger version - Name: 20200722_204216_copy_1008x567.jpg, Views: 53, Size: 209.61 KB

Glad I did this outside. The shade holder was painted with some low temp paint. Smokes for 30 minutes.
