    When I get it from an American seller on ebay, these things come together and it looks like a good combination.

    Everything is in this m1961 canvas bag

    The support fits perfectly with the frying pan

    After replacing all the rubber parts, it was reignited

    It is indeed a very good combination.

    Very well presented @anfeng, thank you.

    I wonder what 'knickknacks' an inexperienced soldier tended to load himself down with? Bric-a-brac to make tent life more homely?

    The army had to use the car gasoline at the time of the U.S. army's m1950, and basically you had to burn what Willis was burning, and it was easy to get a carbon on the stove.

    M1950, which was produced in 1951 and served in 1987 for 37 years, has not changed its design from the beginning to the last.

    In the case of carbon blockage, the American solution is convenient and fast replacement of easy block parts.

    IMG_9525.JPG

    Remove the pan support assembly.

    IMG_9528.JPG

    Remove the bell burner bowl with a wrench.

    IMG_9529.JPG

    Remove the bolts under the preheating tray.

    This is the part that can produce carbon, the nozzle, the riser, the copper coil.

    If you are pressed for time, you can change into a spare burner tube assembly, which you can find in the pump rod. The whole replacement process takes only a few minutes.

    In your spare time you can clean up the charcoal in the replacement parts. A pin is a good tool.

    In addition, the pump check valve is also easy to maintain.

    I try to make up for my lack of English by using pictures. I hope I didn't cause you too much trouble. Thanks for all the friends who have been paying attention to my topic.

    If you shut off the valve and still have the gas leaking from the nozzle, try replacing the fluoro rubber gasket for the unit.

    Thank you, @anfeng, for the tutorial on "field maintenance" of the M1950.

    Cheers

    Thank you Kerophile! These two British soldiers may have been fed up with Austin Champ and traded with American soldiers, ha ha!

    Good summary on the disassembly/assembly. Images always help regardless of language.

    This is an older thread but I just happened across it. I had thought the jet and generator were one piece and never realized the jet could be unscrewed from the generator. So I'll add my thanks for the information....now to properly clean about 5 generators and jets in the spares bin.
