How do I disassemble an antique oil lamp?

They appear to have been stored for many years, still have some sort of fluid in them, and I have not been able to easily unscrew the burners. I don't want to break anything, can anyone help?

Boil the lamp in hot water and detergent for 1 hr. Should loosen and remove the Kerosene wax that is binding the threads.

The burner assemblies on all old oil lamps unscrew from the tank assembly and can be lifted out. The OIL is usually old kerosene, or diesel fuel. The burner assembly is not usually designed to be taken apart but the wick can be replaced if it's no longer long enough to reach the bottom of the tank, and their available all over the internet.

If the burner assembly seems to be seized to the tank you might want to put some GUNK on the seam and let it soak in overnight.

There is nothing particularly hazardous about the old oil but it is messy and you probably will want to remove all of it from the lamp and if you intend to use it, replace it with kerosene or lamp oil that can be bought at many hardware stores.

Car won't start & leaking lots of some kind of fluid


The computer stopped the car to prevent you driving it and destroying the engine. So you will not be able to restart it until the problem is fixed.

Have you checked any of the following:
== engine oil level
== radiator coolant level
== if its an auto trans, the auto transmission fluid level.

Drop a white tissue into the fluid the car is dropping. Is it watery or oily and what colour is it.
