    Found my first one at a yard sale this summer, missing the proper bail and vent loop/nut. Just got the other that was sprayed purple, so stripped it and used Old Ford Blue on the fount. Unable to verify the founts were originally a slight purple. A Rob Butts chimney on the one. I need to bend a bail, but just can't bear to try my hand.
    Note the two differing knobs on the valve stem. The pump has a NRV type pip at the tip. A neighbor had to spot weld the one vent.

    Thank you, I left the original find as it was and put the bail on it.

    Nice score. Are those kero-fueled lanterns? They're running well:thumbup:
