Thank you!

To me a lamp without a shade is creepy!

After awhile, you can work on points for style!

Cap gasket and pip replacement before you even try to fire it up. More people catch this stove on fire by not doing that.

After that, add fuel, pump 30 strokes, open valve to fill preheat cup, close valve. Lift up tip cleaning lever to retract tip cleaner wire, light preheat cup. When flame is almost out open main valve again.

ONce you get it rebuilt; In my experience they are very sensitive about preheat. Make sure you put a windscreen around it while preheating, and when preheat is done and you have cracked the valve, let is run in the cracked position for 10-20 seconds then slowly open it the rest of the way.

OCP for parts, just search for M1942 and, I recommend using white gas; Crown or Coleman, however, it will run on pump gasoline.

Although there may be spare parts in the pump tube, the pip will not be any good and neither will any gaskets after all these years. If the pump cup and spare generator are in there, they will still be good. If not familiar with a 'pip', it's that little rubber-like dot at the end of the pump. When you pump it, it gets pushed enough to let air in, and the spring behind it seals it back up when the pressure is gone. If it's leaking, then fuel will come back up out of the pump tube and the potential fire will be really exciting. Don't get me wrong, I really like these stoves as well as the M-1950's, but before lighting either of these military stoves, I check, double check and triple check that it's functioning properly.

Flammable liquids, open flame, what could go wrong?
