I recently aqquired this Optimus 200P with a big dent at the top of it.
The plan is to use the freezing metod to remove the big top...
My 300P is under reconstruction. I'm planning to post under reference gallery soon.
Here's a sneek peek pic.

I'm into a similar mission. To restore a Optimus 300P that also had been electrified.
Thanks to my lantern contact Janne W it is on its way to...
Really informative display of the pair.
Then mine is before the Ltd change period.
Very happy to see your 1550 in such good working order. The 1550 and the 1551 i have are super when it comes to brightness. I have no experience...
For me, the location are a interesting fact to consider when it comes to where you are based, what market (fx Sweden =Swedish lantern) and also...
No such spring on a 1550.
The 1550 and 1551 have a shut of vent on the lowest part down inside the tank, and have a NRV like construction there.
I would guess its air leaking out either from the fuel lid or from the quick igniter. Dip the preassurized tank in water.
No marks from the bolts to the tank? Or you don't shake it, only turn it around?
Well performed repair
Keep us posted. Fingers crossed!
You had another 827 that was running good, so compared the J-tube, maybe it is bent?
Please keep us updated
One less spot that can come loose. From wich lantern is it?
Wanted to share some 1550 action in the Swedish autumn evening. Also got a Optimus 5R stove running in one of the pictures.
Great job, and lots of fighting spirit there. Thanks for the guitar string tip.
@spiritburner Sorry, i gave the external diameter.
The internal diameter is some what 9mm.
I'd measures it to 2mm thick and 12mm diameter.
