I just acquired an AGM P67 lamp and unable to loosen the fuel cap. Here is a photo of the lamp.

I thought of adding penetrating fluid but the fuel tube is packed with asbestos. So I would have to dribble it through the air valve. Any suggestions?

You could try heating it with something flameless, like a soldering iron or something.
Good luck with it.

I'd try tapping it gently with a lead or brass drift in the direction of desired rotation.  Tapping, not hammering.  A BIG wood clamp will provide some non-marring leverage.  I'd build some fitted blocks from 1x2 to more closely fit the cap, then clamp it and ease some pressure on.  Looks like the center valve screw could be removed first to give you a better grip on the wings.  Go slow, and good luck.

That gives me an idea. I might set it outside in the sun and let it get hot, then quench in ice water. Maybe do that a few times.

you dont need to POUR on the heat the torch , just wave it over for a couple seconds n try , dont forget the thick glove when you try LOL it will be warmer than you might thing . but that should do it , besides tight  its likely varnished shut and the heat softens it up . you also get a little heat expansion .

Thank you for the encouragement and suggestions! Success! I didn't realize that I was a rapper if you catch my drift. lol

I did 4 solar heat and quench in ice reps, then 3 raps with a punch and bfh. 

Again thank you! 😊😊😊IMG_20200801_162837876_HDR.jpg

Good going.
When you go to use it, a viton o-ring works good on this kind of cap.
Just leave the lead seal in there if it's not messed up.
