    I got this Companion heater stove, Model 5C, without the heater parts. Working on it. :lol: I made the top part of the legs and had a spare trivet. Replaced all washers including NRV and the nipple also had to be replaced with the jet going from 14 thou down to 12 thou to get it running better.

    @Tony Press posted the instructions showing the two modes, heater or stove here:

    The stove has the later narrow cast aluminium support base.

    This version does not have the fount brand COMPANION STOVE filled in like on other Model 5Cs.

    The original 0.169" pip was cork.

    The filler cap is labelled on one side COMPANION and on both sides of the air screw.
