I think just about any place you're going to have to send it in and ARS is well known and trusted, simple process they get you a quote fast, and get the lighter back to you in 2-3 weeks depending on how busy they are. They wanted $45 to redo an IM Old Boy, seals, tank, the works. With what I paid for my St DuPont it would be worth 200 (totally pulling that number outta thin air) or whatever they get for refurbishing them. Good investment and I love my lighter, just doesn't hold gas anymore, it's gotta be over 20 yrs since i bought it.
Can you tell me a little more about the pipe flame nozzle. I have a couple of Ligne 1 lighters and would be interested in converting them to pipe flame.Had a fellow pMag buddy & Dupont lighter owner ship this Line1 back to me for a Pipe-Flame nozzle install:

Also, I'm testing out some more minor improvements to my "stowable mini-studio" lighting setup, & I'm still getting used to some new (to me) camera gear. Pic is a little blurry, I think I forgot to move the autofocus target onto the lighter.

I own both originals and the knockoffs. The later are more reliable than the former, so maybe I need to send the originals off to you!More stuff that I've recently refreshed, & no longer own.
Enjoy, especially if you've got at least one or two of these!

It's an early Line1 Short. It's gold-plated, but it is the thicker 20 micron plating which they refer to as gold-filled. The regular gold plated units have 16 micron thick plating. Should date back to the early '60s.Hello,
I was wondering could you tell me a bit more about this lighter, production year...

You should be able to find them available for the later Line1 units with the barrel-style flame adjuster. I was buying a dozen at a time so I could find ones that clocked where I wanted them to when fully tightened, to create "lefty", "righty", & "ambi" options. (The threads on the nozzles & the lighters don't always start at the same places. ) Now they are harder to find & my last order took two years to show up. The early style Line1s never had the Pipe-Flame nozzles, so if you have those, then they aren't available.Can you tell me a little more about the pipe flame nozzle.
