    Hi fellas, looking for some information, see picture of pricker, should the pricker be more like fine steel wire or is it abit like the tilley with just a point that either just clears the jet or blocks it off. 20191127_110758.jpg
    I can see that it all appears to be abled to screw apart, not wanting to damage what i have, is there spare or alternative parts?

    Also i have the fuel cap but its missing the pressure release screw, is there an alternative or a link to buy one, ive gone through my collection of spare lanterns and stove but nothing seems to fit. 20191127_111522.jpg
    Thanks fellas open to suggestions

    Get in touch with Conny at www.fogas.se

    They have all the spares for Swedish lamps, I have bought loads of them. The pricker does unscrew from the top and you will just have to screw in a new one. May as well get a new jet while you are at it.

    The 991 is a great lantern. What is your date code on the bottom? I have a couple from the late 1930s still going strong.
