    Hello all,

    amongst the stoves I bought recently are 2 Buflam N°2's. Now the funny thing is, the oldest one (left in photo) came with inner burner cap only, the younger brother came with outer cap only :roll: . I first tried to get the younger one going, so fitted both caps to it, filled with kero and pre heated. All went fine, till I started pumping; Kero came out through the seam at the bottom! Cleaned things up, and resoldered the entire seam with soldering paste. Tried again today without good result as you can see from the second photo. My guess is the jet is far to big, the pricker went in it without touching the sides leaving room for a doubledecker. Next, I changed fillercap, pump and burnercaps to the older one, but had to stop again after a while, this time because the NRV started leaking, causing kero to come out of the pump. To be continued!!! :whistle:

    Regards,

    Wim

    Regards,

    PS, with this lovely "summer" we're having, the kitchen has not yet been used for any cooking this year, only for testing stoves :(
