    I'm looking or a generator/vaporizer for the No.5 stove. From pictures I've noticed that the H burner looks to use some of the same parts. Are the generator for the two the same? Anyone have one for sale? I have one made from a US field kitchen generator, but it doesn't burn quite right. Jesse.

    The generator looks like the generator on the M2A.
    If you wouldn't mind taking more pictures of the stove from different angles. Where is the fuel tank/fount.

    It looks like some of these No5 cookers were setup for liquid auto fuel, but some are converted to run on LPG so no generator is needed. Of course I may be wrong.

    This one is setup for LPG.

    The generator in my stove is a M2A that I acquired and had modified (shortened, and different fittings installed). The stove came with the accessories for propane use, but we choose to use it with Coleman fuel. I'd like to find an original generator for it.

    Hi Jesse,

    Keep checking ebay UK for the generator and there may be some other sites available in the UK.

    Cheers,
