About 40 years ago I acquired an Enders Benzin-Gaskocher No. 9061 (former Bundeswehr) stove from a military surplus store in Kansas. I tried to get it running again but failed. I did not have the necessary knowledge and parts to succeed. Instead, I spent a lot of time doing the same things over and over again and expecting a different (better) result. Insane, yes. One night, while futilely working on it outside, my wife (new to me then) locked me out in the cold and put a note on the window that said “Sleep With Your Stove!” I gave up on it. Time passed, but I kept the old stove. Earlier this summer, she reminded me of that episode (which apparently still annoys her ;-), and I resolved to finish what I’d started. Thanks to the great information on this website, and with the help of The Fettle Box and Markus @Russenjesus, I was able to bring this cool piece of Cold War equipment back to operational readiness. I recently tested its readiness by preparing hot chocolate on it for some of our grandchildren. Great success! Here are a couple of images: Some lessons learned during the course of this “fettle”: These stoves were issued to the German soldiers with a complement of spare parts to allow maintenance in the field. Here’s a list of these parts: fuel pump cup (leather), fuel pump cup gasket, fuel pump tube gasket, fuel pump non-return valve (“NRV”) gasket, NRV cup, NRV spring, fuel cap gasket, fuel pressure safety-release valve (“SRV”) cone, SRV spring, SRV pip, fuel jet, fuel jet cleaning needle, nadelhalter steckschlüssel (a/k/a “clock key”) for removing the cleaning needle, and graphite packing (x2) for the fuel control valve and cleaning needle valve. The following non-metal parts in the fuel pump, fuel tank caps (including spare), or found in the spare parts tin will probably need to be replaced due to age: Fuel pump cup (leather) Fuel pump cup gasket or “O” ring (seals pump cup against shaft on downstroke) Fuel pump tube gasket (seals tube to fuel tank) NRV gasket* Fuel cap gaskets SRV pips __________ * If you choose to fabricate this part the dimensions appear to be 11mm wide & 2mm thick with a 3mm center hole. Viton® should be the material used. These parts may also need to be replaced: Graphite packing in fuel control valve and/or cleaning needle valve (if leaks are found) NRV spring (if rusty/deteriorated) SRV springs (if rusty/deteriorated) Most of these parts are not easy to find, but it can be done. (Searching the world over can be part of the fun ;-) Fuel tank capacity is about 400ml, but for proper functioning the tank should not be filled by more than 75% (i.e., with not more than 300 ml). Duration of burn at sea level should be up to 3.5 hours. MSR SuperFuel works quite well in this stove. But instead of using stove fuel for priming (as called for in the directions on the data plate), use denatured alcohol. It is much cleaner (no soot). Thank you everyone!
