Desklamp update

I've already got the desklamp torn down. I've verified that it holds pressure because I managed to get gas just about everywhere. I pumped it up to see if it would make any noise and it did a little. I turned the generator cleaning lever and it made a bit more noise. I figured the tip is clogged. Lets take a look at it, so I loosen the bolt that holds it. Gas leaks everywhere.... damnit forgot to bleed the pressure off. I got that under control but I was starting to sumble around a bit. It looks like it may have lead a hard life. Both burner tubes are somewhat oval shaped because someone used a pair of pliers to losen them at one point. Well I guess it could be worse for being 75 years old. Now I've gotta clean it up, but it should be running in a few days to a week.
