    Lightly used Campus No. 2. Original paint and I decided not to polish it.

    I don't believe the washer in the lower center of the frame is original. I suspect the original owner installed it for added support. Works fine without it but for now I'm keeping it there.

    By far one of the easiest fettles for an old stove I've encountered. New pump leather, cap seal and NRV seals and off she went. NRV came out with the torque required to wind a watch. A very pleasant surprise!

    A few minutes of old fuel residue burning green....

    ...and eventually burning blue.

    Really an outstanding stove. Fires right up every time with sensitive flame adjustment in either direction and a stout flame on the top end.

    Can anyone translate the French instructions? I used Google Translator with mixed results.

    Thanks, Jerry
