Nulite model 5 feddle help please.

I'm fairly convinced this is a model 5, unless you guy's just say I'm wrong.

I think the valve is clocked wrong because of pic's I've seen, and it just won't go together right.

Here's what I have.

I believe the knob should be centered of the pump and fill cap, and the bail over them too.

Someone has all ready had this all apart. Nothing was tight on it. There's tool marks on the valve. I need to turn it back. I'm afraid of breaking something though. Should I just put it upside down in a vise? Does this top part unscrew from the top of the valve making it 2 pieces?

Seems like I'm missing part of the pip assembly. I think the spring, pip cup, and rubber pip. What do you guys thin?. A pic would be great, and does anyone have those parts?

I guess I better stop there for now. Thanks for any input.

As far as I can tell, my Nulite No. 5 has not been fully disassembled. In the photos below, you can see the clocking and bail alignment and also the spring, cup and pip for the check valve.

Thanks Steve.

I was able to move the valve. But things still aren't lining up right.

Does you air tube line up over the knob? It looks like it. My base plate does want to let it do it. Does yours look like this? Notice the air tube hole at 6:00 and the way the valve hole is pointing.

Never mind. I got it. A little user error,,,lol. If I wouldn't have posted that last pic above I would have never noticed the one hole is bigger. That's where the support rod goes, not where I was trying to put it. No wonder it wouldn't go. But in my defense I was putting it together like I took it apart,,,, I think.

I think you've got it right. Here is the photo before I removed it.

I'm going to post a wtb for the pip stuff. Is it ok if I use your pic please?

Is that pip like the one used on a Prentis Waber? I think it might look like the one in my brown bomber?

I thought someone had soldered the pump in. I thought the top few threads were striped. I kept digging stuff out of them. But as I'm typing this it dawned on me that it probably has a lead washer there. I bet that's where James said he used an o-ring. I thought he meant for the filler cap. I'll have to go back and read what he said.

Try an euro brass stove pip, pip holder and spring. I bet they will fit right.
I’ll take pigeon mine tomorrow, I put my hands today on it.

Sure you can use pic.

I'm thinking that the size used would be about the size used in a Tilley 246X lantern. I'd need to go get the pump back out and do a comparison to some replacement Tilley gaskets. Maybe tomorrow if I remember and you don't find an original one. Poncho may be on track with his suggestion and that reminded me of that Tilley rebuild I did some months ago.

Yes I used a oring on the pump assembly and on the fuel cap as well. The lead gasket on the pump might work but mine came off with the pump assembly and had a piece of leather over the lead gasket as well so I just replaced it with a oring. Mine was rigged all over the place. I made my own pip. And used a m1950 sized leather pump cup because the original was trashed.

Sorry the pip holder is wider so the pip is too but spring is the same.
