It had a leak around the filler and the insert for the mounting screw had a leak as well which took two attempts to repair. The repair is hidden by the holding bracket so it can stay as it is.
    The filler cap had a leather seal, a rubber type seal and a plastic cutout sandwiched together and not making an effective seal.
    One of the tank mounting screws was also replaced with a screw more of a match to the original.
    A standard pricker was too short so I lengthened one using a broken axel from a MIC toy car.
    It will be a good companion for my Campingo no: 2

    Nice pair of stoves you have there. It's nice to see these things being preserved and so well taken care of.

    They will both be on duty when I go camping after Christmas.
