    Just received this stove. Heavy as can be. Built like a truck. I believe the burner was switched along the way to an Optimus style. This is gonna take some love to make it run. Lots of gummed up fuel residue.

    Dead easy to work on, the heat guard in front of the tank is asbestos lined , get rid of it, or seal it

    probably because it has the wrong burner fitted, originally this stove ran on petrol as did the vehicle it was allocated to.

    OK, it answers my second question, which was "why the burner is higher than the grid".
    Thanks.

    looks like the grid can be turned over to lift the pan away from the top of the burner.
