    I have had this for several years. I did fire it up when I got it but it flooded easily, and pulsed so badly that it was next to useless, so I put it away for a rainy day. Well had some time and dug it out of the pile of old stoves, pulled the valve and genny, no wonder it didn't burn with a s**t

    the end of the pricker rod was burnt off so a new tip was made and held in place with a wrap of wire. So what to do!!!!!!!!! luckily the old rod unscrewed from the valve, then I grabbed an old genny from a Canadian 4 M stove, cut down the rod to length and soldered it into the valve, so far so good. The tube was nearly closed up with carbon build up and after many heat and quenches it was still a mess, chucked a drill bit into my drill and reamed it clean, but no spring in the tube, so I cut 1 down from the 4 M and after a bit of metal removal it slid inside the tube. I re-asembled everything and lit it up, darn, burns great now, just a bit of leakage on the tip threads. This old girl deserves a new coat of paint, so I guess its now on the to do list

    Jan, that is a very nice stove and also very unusual
    It is clearly a No. 3, but does not have the usual No. 3 pan rest surface.
    I have a number of No. 3 adverts from the 1920s and non of them show the pan rest surface that yours has.
    Yours has the surface that came with the No. 7. But the No.7 is a larger stove and so the top surface could not have been transferred from a No. 7.

    Of course, your stove might have dimensions larger than the normal No. 3.
    If not, then your pan rest surface must have been specially made for the stove.

    An advertisement from 1922.

    Looks to me like they ran out of No. 7 labels so they stamped a "7" into a No. 3 label and called it good.
