    hi Jaun, nice hard to find lamp and looks in great condition, i have just acquired one myself but no shade, Jaun mine has the fuel pick up tube soldered to the bottom of the fuel control cock, do you know if this is standard on the Tilley ex 100 or 4 models, other may know, cheers Frank.

    Nice find ::
    What's the rectangular label,is that a steel font?
    I will second Bob never seen a tube fixed to a c/cock yet.
    Perhaps a repair after a blocked or other fault with pick up tube.

    this is a first for me to, this is a early model ex 4 I[Ithink] has the air bleed screw on top of the tank, when i unscrewed the control cock it just has a threaded opening for the control cock to screw into, not at all like normal Tilley, it looks factoy, no sign of home tampering, but the pick up is missing with clear evidence of where it was soldered in, when i get home in a few days i will post pics, cheers Frank

    Had a look at the tubes in 2 ex4's and 3 ex100's and none were soldered but all the ex100's are about 4 or 5 mm away from the bottom of the tank where as both ex4's are firmly touching.

    Juan, is that a metal tank?

    These are directions for the preservation of the steel tank. I really made it from parts: the first part was the tank, wich was claimed as en EX100 tank.

    Ex 100 Steel tank was later part WW2 brass shortage production.
    Frank I have not tried too hard to remove the cock rom EX4 as I was told they were not removable, and the pressure release is standard on later EX4`s
