    My limited experience tells me to replace all the seals at once. If one item is hard or perished, the rest won’t be far behind!

    I suggest you buy a good supply of seals, as the lamps breed you’ll be consuming them quite quickly!

    You could solve all your problems if you fetched the bits up here. I will have all the seals and if need be sare parts, to fettle any Tilley. Can't be all that far I'm only about 25 miles north of Marble Arch. ::Neil::

    Agreed. Just bought a couple of full kits from Julian Shaw.

    Hmmm Bexley is more like 60 miles. Quite a trek from the other side of the river. Your call. I am mostly here and visitors are always welcome. ::Neil::
