M1950 preheater cup alternatives?

#1

Post by will5a »

I picked up several M1950's and one was missing the burner bowl, vaporizer and preheat cup. Can't find an M1950 preheat cup at OCP or off ebay, so searching posts here I've seen others recommend using a 530 jamb nut with the preheater cup for a 237 lantern, both available from OCP. Any other alternatives or suggestions? Thanks, Will

The preheat cups from the 520 and M2 burner assembly are a bit too tall, but as a last resort you could cut one of those down and braze the preheat cup to the top. The 530 seems to be hit or miss for me. One of mine spares tightened up the vaporizer okay on an M-1950, but the other didn't, but I'm not sure why.I could be the threads are a bit flattened from a PO. So, I guess a spare from a 530 is your best bet.

Did you already place a WTB here on the forum? Someone might have a spare laying around.

Thanks, I'll order the 530 jam nut and 237 cup and see what happens.

I'm looking for a wrench for a M1950 if you happen to have one you want to part with? Thanks!

Thanks, I'll try the 530 jam nut with 237 cup from OCP approach first, if that works I think it will be easier than modding the 520 cup.
