This is a wall Mount Tilley lamp, well a very tired one.

The seals are shot, this means the Alloy valve will weld it self to the brass fuel tube.

White vinegar will help break the corrosion, but gentle heat was used.

The pump was in a similar way. New seals, washers and a spring had it working. Bit the bore is pitted, it may have to be sleeved or replaced.

Started the clean up, the brass was in good condition.

Rebuilt a old head unit, but I brought a new glass.

First time lighting it.

There is an issue in the pump, the one way valve is not sealing 100%
