I saw a hard sale pop up on Marketplace Friday and saw an old looking stove in the pics. No info on it. Kinda thought it may have been a Prentiss Wabers. Got off work Saturday and almost didn't go check it out because it was 45 minutes away and in a not so great neighborhood in Columbus. Glad I did. The fellow who sold it was in his late 70s and he'd gotten it used as a young man. I picked it up for 2$ over the going rate. Never thought I'd find a stove this old at a garage sale. Can't wait to perk some coffee on it.

One lucky dog you.  🙂 

Did it come with the oven rack and heat plate thingy?? If so, you are doubley lucky dog.

I'll bet you oil the pump, put a gasket on the fill cap (a standard 220 gasket works great) and it fires right up.

I'm cleaning up a #1 I got a while back from a member. It was not $2 over the going rate, but I am not complaining.

Looking forward!

Too bad it didn't come with the rack, they seem to be easily misplaced....still, seriously nice old stove, you have inspired me to hit a few more yard sales this summer!

I made up a rack for mine, is not an exact repo by any means but works fine.

It's not showing in your pics - is it a std copper tubing size?  You may be able to replace from the hardware store?  (you may need to use the original nuts, assuming a flare or compression fitting)

The side which goes to the tank/fount is threaded. I'd look to see if there is a solder-able tubing coupler available just like you'd use on half-inch copper pipe in your house. Can you post a photo of the cracked tube?

Ouch! That's worse than I thought.

If it were mine I'd try to find the best way to repair it. The fuel tank end caps on these stoves are soldered, though they do reside outside of the case when operating, so I don't know if you could get away with a lead-soldered connection inside the case. There may be a compression coupler (union)  you could use to join the two together. You could also braze a coupler in place and that would be solid.

Pics of the ends?  That's a serious break, so I'd be suspect of the line itself.    I'm assuming it's copper? or is it brass or even steel?

Hey Dave, great stove you found...I know you will enjoy using it once you have everything back together.

As others  have said, don't mess around with trying to repair that line...you don't want gas under pressure leaking out of that thing when there will be flame around.

First determine what metal it is...looks brass in the photo, but should be easy to determine...I strongly suspect you can either re-use the original fittings on the end or obtain identical replacements for them without much trouble...if you cannot reach out to me as I have a lathe and can probably help you remake fittings if necessary....but probably easy enough for you to reuse or obtain replacement.

Well, @Buckeyecamper either way you go, this is fixable. I believe that Model #1 stoves also have that separate check valve stem, just like the Model #2, so replace that gasket too when you have a chance. That'll help it pressurize better when pumping. It looks like this:
Model2_Fount_CV_Stem_Seal.jpg 


And, assuming the #1 fuel line is the same as the #2, these are the two ends. First photo is at the fount:

And, if you're going to remove the generator end of the fuel line, you might as well get that brass screen out and either clean it or replace it.

So I'm not seeing the tank end well enough but the generator end, assuming the tube is close to a standards size tube, can:
  1. Have the tapered piece cut off,
  2. Drilled to tit a new tube
  3. silver soldered on the new tube.  
That part is relatively easy 

Need more detail on the tank end to offer a suggestion

@outlawmws are you referring to my post? If so, my fuel line is fine. I only showed the two ends for reference of what the two ends look like in case @Buckeyecamper was going to make an entire new fuel line. The end near the tank is a threaded line. It threads into the tank and is sealed with a graphite packing in the nut. 

My thinking was that if a compression fitting at the genny was safe, then a compression union in the middle of Buckeyecampers fuel line at the break should also be safe.

I was using those photos as reference to Dave's issue.

My concern with his is that the tube itself may be brittle, if it broke once like that, so I'd be working towards full replacement.

I got a message from a member here about a model #1 stove carcass with the fuel line still attached that he had sold to another member. I contacted that person who had since sold it to a third member. I am currently working on a trade to get it.
