    Hello

    Asking for advice again. One of my Opt 930 was slowly loosing pressure and leaking kerosene. Problem was burner connection to the tank.Just had to tighten it. But then the wheel for cleaning needle would not align up. According to the drawings there is first a lead packing (#2626) and on top of that a aluminium washer (#2755). I had to add a lead washer on top the aluminium to make things right.Is that ok ? Will do a test burn tonight

    Thanks Bjørn

    I havn't looked at any parts list and would have expected there was only a lead washer there. At least that is what there is on most other lamps so why shouldn't it work on a 930 as well. I only use a lead washer when I refurbish a 930.

    My two only have a lead washer. Putting an aluminium washer on the lead washer would seem to defeat the purpose of having a lead washer.

    I have only used lead washers between the tank and the lower vaporizer assembly when servicing. Aluminum washers is used between the lower and upper vaporizer parts on some lanterns (ex.radius 119) iw serviced due to the heat.
