    Here is the EX100 that I have just fettled (the before photos will be at the bottom of the post):

    As found:

    The pump cap was damaged, so I replaced it with one that fitted, but was not quite the same:

    Fettling was reasonably straightforward (except for the solder, which I will link to later.

    A new vapouriser was required:

    The pump reassembled:

    The Tilley reflector came from a Kayen Lamp:

    Here it is, lit up and running on my verandah at early dusk:

    Nicely done Tony.
    Is that a brass fount or steel and do you think the paint it come in was original?

    The tank is brass (as is the bail); and it was the original paint in the "before" photo (I checked underneath).

    I tried to rematched it as best I could: the colour is almost right - except for the gloss!.

    Cheers
