    With the 1/3 pint shorty Primus 71 already established...

    1938: is the 1st year for the 1/2 pint (standard sz) Primus 71 and
    this is a good example. Capacity of tank is 1/2 Imp. Pint / 0.28 ltr.

    First rate. What is the protrusion on the burner bell?

    The whole stove model is basically "new" but I meant to mention the "dome lid", this '38 is the debut for that filler cap as well. It threads onto new larger filler neck (16mm OD).
    ------------------------------------
    SveaS,
    That is what they call a "stop pin", part of the (air restrictor) burner head, in use on the Primus 71s 1937 - 1950.
    It is included in the instruction that came w/this stove.
    As subscriber you can also see it accurately illustrated in the 1939 catalog.

    OMC. Thanks. I read the catalog entry and studied the schematic. So it's sort of a carburetor for mixed fuel, like ''Gasahol'', I guess.
    The P 71 won't run on pure alcohol, will it?
    Interesting that Primus was thinking of petroleum - gasoline shortages, a year before the conflict broke out in 9/39. Or did the catalog post date the Invasion of Poland? I'm assuming Pin X was on the stove when new in 1938.
