    Complete stove, added a pot support from my parts, peened the burner. Ran without issue. Only oiled the pump cup, burned the old cap washer out and added a new one, rinsed the fount, poked the NRV, it holds for now. Had a nice homemade burner plate and a neat homemade tin. Dirty parts and brass mesh were soaked in hot vinegar.

    Tin was a nice surprise, looked like in the ad was just a bare metal tin. A couple sellers who I had mentioned what years I needed both told me about this. Another one that sold cheap.

    If none were made in '41 and '42, then just two more. I think my pre-1911 may have a few wrong parts.

    Thank you Ben. Lots of questions of sellers, most reply, gets antsy at times if a BIN or if won then shipped, checking to see it made it past Customs.

    @hikerduane
    Hi.
    Are you going to be done actively looking for 96’s once you have all the years or you going to look for all the years the specifics came out in? For example the pocket outfit and the 96 sport. Not talking about the opportunities that come up that can’t be resisted.
    Thank you
    Andrew

    @Andrew, I might pick up better examples of some that I have already and cherry pick a few others that had aftermarket parts. I have a bike bracket, many pocket outfits, one sport, a embossed tin on top for one and another with a badge on top from a importer, ringed burner bell, a nickel model, original early spanner, etc. All part of the chase.

    !946 My birth year Duane. Don't think I'd look that good after a hot vinegar soak. Charlie

    A hot vinegar soak might tighten me up some....born 1948.
