    I am interested to know the the manner by which the kerosene pressure stoves were classified as regards their size.
    Were the stoves sized according to the burner size or according to tank size? Is there any relation between the two?
    I appreciate if someone forwards some kind of table or other guide.

    Thanks.

    No standardisation of numbering of stoves either by an individual maker or between competing manufacturers.

    Have a look at this listing from Base Camp:

    Paraffin stove reference numbers

    Thanks kerophile. Very interesting information.

    If I may pose another question. What sizes of roarer burners (height and thread diameter) were installed on these pressure stoves (I am after the 'normal' ones, not the foldable camping stoves)

    Thanks.

    Can I suggest you to be a subscriber?
    If so, you can find all of this information in the Reference Library that is only accessable to subscribers.
    In my opinion, well worth money.

    Thanks for your suggestion. I am now a subscriber.

    @kerophile
    Thanks for the link. Great and detailed information.

    I am restoring an old pressure stove. It was equipped with a 203/213 burner. Sadly the burner has deep dents on its pipework (probably damaged by a spanner when it was installed/replaced). I would like to replace the burner. Is this burner available sommwhere?

    Thanks.

    Hi the Op.203/213 burner is a BIG burner. It is typically specified for a No.3 stove:

    Primus No.3 - 1960s

    Are you sure that this is the one you seek?

    Best Regards,
    Kerophile.

    Check the diameter of this large burner against the riser tube of your stove.

    Best Regards,
    Kerophile.

    If you can push a 3 or 4mm steel wire up past that crease in the burner, your burner may ok.

    I would give it a good clean with carburettor cleaner, make sure the nipple and jet is clean, then test it for leaks.
