Just picked up a fairly nice, in the box JC Higgins 2 burner camp stove (Model 710.74040) which I understand is made by AGM (any idea what year? or date range) prior to the Ted Williams branding, so I am guessing possibly late 1950's. I believe there is possibly a KampKook branded stove also made by AGM/Thermos, but don't know the model number.    

I am in need of both the leather pump cup (5/8") diameter pump tube and the pip for the NRV which appears to be made of cork(?)
  The Pip has a hole all the way through it (must have been poked at one time) and of course will not hold pressure in the tank.   I have researched both items with no luck of finding them.   I did see where people stamped their own pip's or used O-ring making material (doesn't it have to be solid)? 

I did fire the stove but could not build or maintain good pressure with both of these issues.   I know someone has traveled down this road before and I would appreciate any help you can provide me.  I would love to get the old girl running like she should.   With the cast iron burners, she is a tank and pretty good looking too! 

Also, Has anyone found Sears catalogue print advertising for this model?  

Thanks Much!

Welcome Ron.

The PIPs people make from O-rings are solid, You simply cut a section of the the O-ring maybe 1/8 in. long making sure the diameter of the O-ring cross section is what you need in the PIP cup or holder. Our host carries PIP's or "dots" as some call them. 

I think that pump cup is the same as most of the Coleman's. Our host carries them:  http://www.oldcolemanparts.com/product.php?productid=77&cat=&page=1

Chuck,
Thanks for the quick reply.  Picked up a 3/16" thick O-Ring at ACE hardware and trimmed it to leave about 1/32 of an inch above the top of the cup holder.  Tried it with the original pump cup which had been soaking in Neats foot Oil.  That did the trick!   I was able to pump it up and it holds pressure great!   Fired up and it roared with a Vengeance!   Will still need to replace the pump cup at some point.    I did call and talk to Mike before I posted here.   He did not have anything for PIP or a pump cup that would fit the 5/8" diameter tube.   Said he didn't know anything about the JC Higgins/AGM stoves and suggested I post at CCF.
I will try a Coleman pump cup which I believe run about 3/4" but I am thinking it may be too big and too tight?  I would like to find something closer to OEM.

Thanks again!

Anyone have an idea as to the date of manufacture and sears product print advertising?   Would be cool to find an ad!

I have several of those stoves and I'm pretty sure I have used coleman cups.

Looks like mid to late 1950's per Dr. Terry Marsh's website:
