With all the lamps I won, I've also had to clear most plugs for them.  Some sorta success.  Vinegar soak, lye, citric acid, a second soak after trying one method.  I usually feel good if the bearing rattles, but that doesn't mean it functions good when the external pump shaft rises rapidly.  Anything work well for you?  I felt lye would eat up any leather or other item and clear crud.

Only the oldest of plugs have leather in them, and you'll probably want to replace it anyway. I use lye to clean all my lamp and lantern plugs and it works quite nicely.

Remember that the ball just inhibits air from leaving, it doesn't stop it. As long as you can pump faster than the air comes out, it's working.
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.

Fresh container of lye, may retreat most.  Most also need/needed a rubber washer or oring.  Thank you guys.

Acetone and 150PSI shop air.  Rattles them around enough that they seat nicely with minimal pressure once cleaned.

That one is a repro that I plated. It's a copy of the one that fits later QuickLite lamps and lanterns.

The original had a lead gasket cast into the bottom of the main body. Usually, that's toast so I use a #110 Buna O-ring under the plug. WOrks great, and no tool required to tighten/remove.
