    Making myself a Turkish brew after supper. I see a graphite washer that needs to be replaced ;)

    Screw in the packing nut but not to much.

    @Nico ,

    I'd recommend you contact our member, @Trojandog . For a very reasonable price, he sells graphite sheets, out of which proper O-ring packings can be made!

    https://classiccampstoves.com/threads/graphite-foil.44302/#post-471010

    Many of us have used Terry's graphite sheets to make our own graphite packings, and they work wonderfully! You'll get enough sheets that they will last you for years to come. WELL worth the asking price! Good luck, and God Bless!

    Every Good Wish,
    Doc

    Thanks Doc, When I took the stove apart to readjust the cleaning needle hight I must have not tighten the packing nut enough like JP2 suggested. It's working fine now. For good measure I did order some graphite foil from Terry123 over on ebay a few days ago...I didn't like the condition on mine so I'll replace it once it arrives.

    @Nico

    My Swedish is as good as my
    Bulgarian; that’s why I use the “translate” function on Google Chrome to translate Fogas.se into English. It works pretty well and the oddities it throws up are amusing.

    I then send them an email specifying the parts and asking any clarifying questions.

    Cheers

    Tony

    I spent an hour looking at their website. Lots of stuff...Some translations were indeed funny. Thanks for sharing.

    It's good but only if you like strong coffee and don't mind having a bit of coffee grains in your mouth. The grains settle at the bottom of the cup but sometimes I forget :)

    I don't mind the stronger the better.
