    The Enders 9065
    I've had this for about a year. An auction piece I paid around $120 for. Since I did not see it in the Reference Library, I thought to put it here.
    The 9065 is a pressurized gas dual roarer stove. It is one of the least refined Enders I have. The case uses very simple hinges and clasps. The paint, although I am not sure mine is original, is put on heavy and thick. It is fun that the decal shows a different stove, a 1953er as shown here

    When I first tried to fire this stove it only put out 2 candle type flames. After repeated pricking it tried to burst forth but only 25% of the burner would light.
    I decided to take it with me to the Northeast Stove meet to fettle. It got a full set of seals, NRV, cap and pressure relief, pump cup and rod o'ring.
    Still it needed to be pricked often and put out yellow flames or went out completely. Several alcohol rinses and carburetor cleaner were showing poor tank condition. Thanks to Doug (exeter yak) we decided that old fuel had severely varnished the tank and tubes and there was likely some floating debris that would move to the jets. The jets are smaller than my 111's and 8r's and only took my smallest prickers. I decided to mix 1/2 alcohol and 1/2 fuel injection cleaner to wash the tanks and burners. That helped so I mixed another batch and let it sit 4 hours. What came back out looked like medium bold coffee. It took another fuel injector wash and 3 alcohol rinses but the stove came back big time.
    It has the same output as the Benzine baby but with a larger flame and cooking area.
    I've included size caparisons to the 9065D. I can't see why they have it in the same family as it is a very different stove. A later project will be to put new graphite in the burner spindles. They are unlikely to come out without brute force.

    Getting the gunk cleaned out took a lot of work but you can't argue with the results. I like the knobs coming out of the side of the stove. They're out of the way and turning them would be more natural. Nice old stove.
