    I've joined the 41 owners as well. :lol: The stove is nice and straight, the case has seen better days on one of the corners, but not the end of the world. I've got half the original regulated burner but it came with an unregulated one so i managed to get the stove going earlier, I'll add flame shots after it's gone dark. If anyone has the spare parts, spindle, cleaning needle, packing nut and control wheel, or alternatively just any old regulated Primus burner that will do the job, I'd be interested to hear from you. ;) :D

    I'm not sure, I did see in another post that the 41 spindle was different to I think it was a 111. So whether there are any interchangeable parts from others stove I don't know. I thought it would be fine as is with the unregulated burner on, but then I remembered how bad things get when you screw down the filler cap with a tank full of paraffin and things start to warm up. ](*,) ](*,) :lol:

    Matthew,

    You are getting some epic scores in the stove arena! It's amazing!

    Nice Primus 41 with a really nice flame!

    So, what else do you have off stage?

    Unregulated burner will create some challenges for the use. If you cannot keep tank open you need to keep stove in constant temperature so that pressure in tank won't rise. Also you need to keep stove in cool temperature that fuel evaporation will not create pressure. Also you can carry stove in quite limited ways. :mrgreen:

    Looks that the regulated burner is not the original regulated burner for that stove. Do you want to get stove into use with regulated burner or do you want to restore stove to it's original condition?

    Thanks Sam, they are a couple of nice ones. :lol: I don't think I've got anything else that I haven't already posted elsewhere. I don't make a habit of looking at stoves on Ebay so usually when I find one it's out and about and normally few and far between... Thank goodness. :lol: :lol:

    Yes, your right Afterburner. With an unregulated burner it makes use a lot more difficult. I was thinking that this could be a good one for the back of the car, but as it is that's just not an option. So I guess to answer your other question no I'm not overly fussed about getting an original burner, if I could find one that would just "do the job" then I've always got the option to swap it out in the future. :p :lol: :lol:

    That burner that you have looks very much like Optimus regulated burner. It doesn't have long stuffing box like in original(?) burner in this thread: https://classiccampstoves.com/threads/10847

    I would be quite confident that 111 spindle, stuffing box nut & gasket and washer between spindle thread and gasket would fit to that burner which you have. Addition to those you would need 111 style adjustment knob. 123 spindle and other parts would not fit to 111 style burner since in spindle "tip cone" is shorter than in 111 spindle. (I have 123 and 111 spindle and I compared them side by side)

    So maybe there is a change to get that regulated burner running in that stove... [-o<

    Thanks again Afterburner, I have a couple of 111's, so I can try the spindle from one of those and see if it works. If it does then I just need to find a cheap one of those. :lol: :lol:

    Update on this stove, I bought a spindle, packing nut, washer and graphite packing from a Uk seller on eBay and all the parts fitted perfectly. Only thing I'm missing now is a cleaning needle. The control shaft is a bit of my own engineering, all the bits work well together, the wooden knob is a temporary job until I get a nice piece of wood to turn a proper one.:D

    Thanks @kerophile I believe my burner is a standard primus/Optimus regulated one. Not sure, but I guess the needle would be the same as a 111. I bought a needle and jet off the same seller as the other parts but neither of those fit this burner. I've made up an external pricker that works pretty well.
