I recently came across a model Q lamp, and I have a question for those wiser than I. The fuel pickup will not pass air at all. Searching the internet and the guide I see the feed stem (part M13) for Models M & N lamps listed as being available for replacement. See the Coleman Repair Catalog No. 27 for the Model M and page 23 of the guide for Model N as a reference. The feed stem (part Q13) is listed as an available part for the Model Q lamp as shown on the price list of repair parts on page 25 of the guide. Now comes the difficult portion of the equation. I have been advised that removing the feed stem would be ill advised, and ruin the lamp. How does the bottom of the feed stem come out for replacement? It seems logical that it would be removeable since it is offered as a repair part. Is it a separate part from the standpipe that should it fall out when turned over? Does one simply unscrew the standpipe and the feed stem is set down into the bung? Has anyone ever taken a M, N, or Q completely down and had the standpipe out/off of the fount. Sorry for the long-winded query.
Many thanks in advance for you help.

It would be my guess that the fuel stem is soldered in the fount top and bottom... But I'm not positive of that. Have you thought of back flushing the fuel stem? How does the inside of the fount look? Beautiful lamp by the way.

I recently pulled a PU tube out of a junker CQ. The tube was split and the fount leaked. 
It was lightly soldered on the bottom threads and were it came out of the fount. 
I would get inventive with ways to unplug the tube.

Lye crystals from a hardware store is what I use, be careful, especially if something will drop and cause a splash.  I let soak for a few hours.  Hopefully will clear the obstruction.

Lye crystals was going to be my next step. Just have to figure out how to get the last couple ounces that get stuck in the fount because of the sleeve around the filler. Maybe a basting needle?

Could mix it just before pouring the solution into the fount.  Pinkies get a little slick if in the solution.  When finished, if not aware, rinse all with diluted vinegar.
