    We scored an old cabin stove today. Old but perfectly functional. Even has original paint and decals.
    Canada is big, our stoves were huge. Flame shot to come.

    That's grand.

    When you fire it up talk us through the lighting procedure please. I see a fuel valve resembling one on a Handy Gas Plant mounted on the fuel tank, then there are the two other control wheels on generator and secondary burner.

    Pump 'ball' is handsome, but does that rule out the usual Coleman check valve 'thumb over the pump knob hole to pump' procedure or is there still a hollow pump rod there?

    Apologies for the questions but you've presented something of great interest and out of the ordinary.

    John

    Edit
    On closer inspection of the relevant photo (excellent photos) I can see the hole in the brass centre boss on the pump knob, so I believe that's answered that question.

    I lit this puppy according to these instructions:

    "It's pretty easy to light. The large valve on the tank should be opened 1/4 for lighting. That gives an air fuel mix for lighting. The gen valve works just like any other you have used. Once it's lit and warmed up, you push the detent down to allow the tank valve to be opened all the way. This takes it of instant light mode, and delivers fuel only to the gen."

    That's an impressive piece of machinery.

    I gather from your discussion that it has been in use relatively recently. Is this correct?

    I hope you've got a big cabin to put it in.

    Cheers

    Actually the person who sold it to me was keen on firing it up before I paid him but no one had fuel at the moment. But I trusted him as he seemed like an outdoorsman who had been through a few hunting camps.

    Flame shot this evening.Last pic is @ full throttle.First pic seems to show primary burner flame is directed to the generator. But I am not comfortable with the flame shooting at the hand wheel.
