    This pendant has caused me all manner of problems to fettle and there are more in store for me.

    Everything was seized up on it and required oil, heat and a fair amount of brute force to separate.

    The fuel pipe was blocked up with crud where it enters the valve and I thought I might have to cut the pipe as Neil did with his 28517[/ATTACH] 1366994098-pendant2.jpg 1366994103-pendant3.jpg 1366994108-pendant4.jpg 1366994112-pendant5.jpg 1366994115-pendant6.jpg

    Yes well done in getting going again James,

    Finding the proper globe for that model of lamp will be a problem. It's the same type that went into all the 100/150cp table and wall lamps and also the 1128 hand lamp, hopefully some one like "Base Camp" might get some made one day?, as i am sure there are other members who are in need of this type of globe as well, including me.

    Re the pricker pin wrack which you soldered back together, if you want a new one let me know as i have some, both old type with out a cap and new type with a cap.

    Jim
