    Hi

    I am in the process of fettling an Hipolito No2 stove with a silent burner and removable legs (sadly missing).

    1. Can someone please tell me if a washer is normally placed between the riser tube and the tank? When I removed the riser tube there was old 'gunk' present but I am not sure if this was the remains of an old washer or accumulated debris.
    2. There was no lead washer under the NRV. Can a Viton washer be used instead
    3. Short of finding a set of Hipolito legs, does anyone know if legs from another stove manufacturer will be suitable replacements.
    Thanks

    Base camp does not have the correct legs, and as they were longer than the standard Optimus legs, Mike 'the stove' is unable to help.

    If anyone has 3 orphaned Hipolito removable legs I would be grateful if they would let know

    Thanks

    @seajay John if all else fails then you can always make your own, CCS have detailed instructions.

    Making Replacement Legs

    There may be No. 2 owners who may be happy to provide dimnsions you can follow.

    A site seach for 'legs' will also throw up some other resources.
