    Maybe the lamp could need other parts that are not visible, it's part of the things I need to know.
    Also I need some Mantles.

    Good Day Cesar

    Welcome to the forum. I do not wish to discourage you, but perhaps I can save you some money and disappointment.

    I suspect spares for these older Petromax lamps in South America will be as scarce as anywhere else. After 6 months and a couple of hundred US Dollars you might be lucky to have found all the parts you need. Your time and money could be better spent on finding other lamps.

    My suggestion would be to keep the lantern for spares, or wait until you find another and perhaps build up a complete one. You might also use it as trade with fellow collectors.

    The 900 model is one of the specific lanterns of E&G which part are not exchangeable with now a day parts.
    And it is a rare model. Best change is to find another one for parts.
    Mind you its a 900HK and not 150cp model.

    I'm definitely not an expert, @ASHOK KUMAR
    That's way too flattering for me.
    Whatever comments that I've posted in the past, present or any indefinite extent into the future were and should only be treated as my personal opinions, which might or might not be agreed by others, much less even being drawn from well-documented facts.

    Welcome to the forum @Cesar
    The 100HK Petromax 900; Little Baby is a pretty rare lantern from E&G as mentioned before.
    Its quite unlikely you'll be able to find its original spare parts unless you are really lucky. I'd say, you take the advices as mentioned here by @JohanOptimus and @WimVe ...
    But the wait could take forever, and you might likely be anxious to make it functional.
    If that's the case, the only way is to fabricate some of the parts yourself. But you'll need the exact dimensions and geometries. Others here might be able to help on the dimensions.
    Except for the burner hood, J-tube mixing chamber and the outer hood, the missing rest are not exactly too difficult to make.
    You could easily source out a replacement glass globe or a mica one.

    I know it is difficult to find original parts and although it is my final goal while I would like to get the glass and other alternative parts to be able to light it.
    Here some measurements.

    The following link provides some pictorial info of what the parts of the Petromax 900 would look like:
    Petromax 900 Little Baby
    Scroll through the pages to view the inner burner hood. Its different from the other larger Petromaxes.
    You might still be able to find parts for a 150HK lantern and convert it as such but I think they are a little different from the 100HK. Not exact fit.
    Its almost identical to an Aida 100.
    I do not have a Little Baby, else I'll provide some dimensional info.

    Someone is selling Little Baby parts in a Finnish online fleemarket. I'm not sure is it ok to put the link here? The pic shows the set on sale for 40€.

    If it's not a live bidding auction, but has a fixed price, it's OK to put up a link.

    Well, here you go then. Little baby Petromax osat, Järvenpää

    You can contact the seller with the blue "Lähetä viesti" -button. Note that same seller also has Tilley parts for sale like shades and globes and a Tilley table lamp. I have been a little tempted for that my self :-k. Maybe she is willing to send abroad.

    Is it possible that some parts from the new 150 cp Petromax 830 might fit the Petromax 900?:-k
    I think I might have the numbers wrong on this but someone will correct me.:mrgreen:

    George. Sorry but no, 150cp parts will not fit the 900. Several of us have tried that and they don't. Finding parts for a 900 is so difficult because they are not compatible with any modern lantern. The inner hood is not like the 150cp and the jet nipple is too big. Also the 150cp pricker may be adaptable to fit the pricker rod of a 900 but the wire is too thick and would have to be ground down to fit. I don't know if that has been tried though. ::Neil::

    The jet nipple orifice would be smaller than 0.15mm, possibly at about 0.12mm. The needle should be approx. 0.01mm smaller in diametre than the orifice.
    Does any have the thread size and dimensions of the jet? That might help in case the original couldn't be sourced out.

    Now I have more conviction that it is very difficult to get original parts however this makes me more eager to continue looking, plus all the desire to help that I have felt in this forum surprises me a lot so I thank you. I think I'll start by buying a glass, because at least one of the hk150 (Petromax 830) can be used, do you have any recommendation about glass as close to the original?
    Any link?

    Lahde gives the 100cp orifice as 0.12mm or 0.0047". ::Neil::

    Chuta, weon!

    You are lucky I'm in Mendoza and I have "just" three of these for spares. Where are you from, in Chile?

    When you come to Mendoza we can chat a little and perhaps to make a deal. Do you have something to trade? Or perhaps some friend or relative.

    Don't ask me, please, to send it by post.

    I also have globes, I guess.

    Bien Juan!!!
    For my luck in all parts of the world there is an Argentinean, Juan, thank you for your words and desire to help me, tell me if you have any part of what I'm looking for and maybe some pictures. We can also speak in Spanish by private message.

    Ahhhh, no, this is an English spoken forum!!!
    I have to look, but I guess I have everything you need.
    The only problem is: I don't sell, just trade so you have something to offer (lamps, lanterns, etc); the other issue, as I mentioned before, is I hate Argentine post.
    Well, let's continue this by pm.

    Yes, I'm sure I have jet, pricker rod and needle, burner with nozzle, chimney and a local made (not original) glass globe.
    I can't understand what is missed on the pump.

    That's lucky you've got @Juan chiming in.
    Petromax had been in Argentina before, so I guess you might have better luck over there:content:
