    Reserve caps for No.96 and No.100 stove types

    "Reserve caps" or transport screws which rely on the lead seal are never very satisfactory, and will almost certainly leak if you pressurise or even tilt the tank.

    This is because reserve caps are seldom fitted with hexagonal tops so you cannot tighten them down on the lead seal as much as you can a burner assembly.

    For transit of No.96 and No.100 stoves, which also rely on a lead seal, I have used an additional temporary washer of Viton or good quality Nitrile rubber. I place this on top of the lead seal before positioning and tightening the reserve cap.
    Of course you must remember to remove this temporary washer before using the burner assembly.

    I use circular rather than ring washers for the purpose. These washers are about 1.6mm ( 1/16 in.) thick.

    Best Regards,
    Kerophile.
