    Hello all, this is my first post here. I recently bought an Optimus 8R gasoline stove off of eBay and the fuel cap seal and the safety release valve is leaking when I perform a dunk test. stove works somewhat but takes a long time to come to full output. I had an Optimus 99 many years ago and it would start up relatively quickly. Is there a Guide for replacing said srv seal?

    You’ll need a “penta” tool (or make one) for dismantling the NRV.

    This is a different stove, but the NRV is the same. If you scroll down it shows the dismantling of the NRV:

    Cheers

    Now it's time to get started on the case. Looking for proper color. I think I'm going to use stove or automotive engine paint for the temperature tolerance. What do y'all think about gun blueing. Lol
