I’m going to go with (drum roll please) option number four. When I poured off my oil mixture that so far has fixed everything I’ve put it on, such as my moms hood latch and certain padlocks around the house, there were...   BLACK PARTICLES.
My friends don’t call me “Lantern/lampie Levi”
for nothin’,if they did call me that.

Looking for bday lanterns 8/38, 8/41, 
10/25, and 8/07

The biggest lie I tell myself is
”I don’t need to write that down, I’ll remember it.”

"four places can squeak when pumping:"

You might also mention air escaping out of the pump vent hole under the thumb. You just never know...

I would think he'd feel that on his thumb.  It also would not be consistent?

Pull out the air stem--the thingy that screws into the pump check valve--and make sure it's straight and clean. That's the only metal-to-metal contact in the pump assembly. I've fount several that were bent, and many that were badly corroded. The brass stock of the older airstems is easily bent back into shape by using a soft mallet and a hard, flat surface. While you have it out, run some 220 grit sandpaper over it.
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.

With the older lanterns with the metal pump cover/collar, there may be metal to metal contact between the outside of the pump stem and the hole edge in the pump cover/collar. Just covering all the bases.

How did the 'squeak' sounded like? A mouse? Or some inflated rubber toy when you squeeze the air out of it? Or more of a creaking hinge or metalpiece? Or something else?
Could be the sound of some air escaping back out between the leather cup and the pump tube when you're pushing it in? Some grease would stop it all if that is.

I sit corrected! Most of my older, solid-metal caps are badly worn to where the hole is a slot.

The sound is low but still high enough to be a squeal, like air slowly escaping from an inflatable toy.

This could also be thirteen year old ears, vs. most of the rest of us.  The highs gradually go...

Probably need a graphite packing gasket replacement, there will be one in a baggie packed in the box that is on its way to you. Have you tried to tighten the jamb nut on the fuel knob?

     Thanks @gotac65. However the valve stem was bent because i just learned that it comes out. I decided to try taking it out on my best lantern, because, yeah. Anyway, as per usual, brute force is my lover and i guess i bent the valve stem. after i grabbed a donor from my first parts lantern, it works just fine. Ill go out in a minute and try all of the things you guys said to do with the pump. Tomeythreus Out

     Alright, turns out the pump squeal was actually the thing that holds the pump in like @zoomkat said. When I unscrewed it, the pump stopped making noise.
