    This was the biggest challenge in the field of renovation of a pressure hanging lamp until today. It is probably a Continental 701 with 200cp.

    When I got the lamp it was in a miserable electrified state.

    I built a complete new generator helix.

    The mixing tube I patched above and provided below with a new suitable mixing chamber.

    The work on the pump was then only insignificant.
