So I’m cleaning up this Nulite and am running across things that someone rigged up by using a q77 gen where somebody packed the jamb nut with thread material and packed the fuel cap with thread material as well. I know that’s not correct however there is also 96FEAD56-2980-432E-BCEF-723412142227.jpeg  96C8603C-4D9D-41D3-8241-316E1931C435.jpeg  what appears to be leather in between the pump assembly and I’m assuming a washer that sits against the fount flat. Is this correct on any Nulites you guys have seen? Also what size oring should I use on the gas cap insert? Thanks in advance

Is that a lead washer seal and you are missing the lead washer?  And I don't understand where the Q77 enters the picture.  I have a model 8 which appears much different than yours.

i just tried pulling it off and yes it is a lead washer I’m confused about what’s in between and if it’s supposed to be there. As far as the q77 someone tried running that in place of  the proper one.

I just went to remove the pip and it appears to be leather as well.

People without access to a supplier or close to town or even without funds used leather.  Some of my old Primus stoves used leather in various areas.  I've run across leather many times.

I have as well. I found a leather washer on a quick light 327 that I had gotten. I guess I am going to find a O-ring to fill the gap on this one. I’m assuming that the lead washer was probably smashed a little to much and the leather filled the gap17FFCBF8-CA56-45AB-A27B-A41443B4A184.jpeg  4D54DC9E-DFE8-4F1E-8B72-49619816D7AF.jpeg

I see thread tape in a lot of wrong places where someone who didn't understand how things work tried to fix a leak. One common one is on flare and compression fittings, where the threads were never meant to seal.

arghhh.  If I had a dime for every time I had to undo someones crummy flare connection thats sandwiched with Teflon or compound...   I can always tell when an amateur came in ahead of me on a job by flare connections.

If your familiar with the Nulite gen it has a male end that fits into a female valve. This one had a q77 female going into a female valve with packing thread wrapped around the gen and the Nulite jamb nut 6F92F64B-EF21-45A8-8D6D-2AFC0BE94D60.jpeg  C50182DE-3799-445F-BF40-9766008357D6.jpeg
