    Hello Guys (and gals), I'm new here and this is post #1 for my No1.

    I recently bought one cheap, cost me $25 but it seems to have a blocked jet, I cannot figure out how to remove the jet to drill it. I have some really fine jet drills but a strand of wire brush wire would not clear it. Any ideas? I don't want to marr the generator tubes with pointy pliers or similar.

    Regards,
    Adrian

    Welcome Adrian,
    Pardon the interruption, of note: Initially this begs the question (for me)…
    Do you have a roarer or silent burner?

    As is almost always the case, providing pics when requesting details is a most effective method.

    Typically, a No.1 stove does indicate roarer burner.
    Here is a Meva 1 w/roarer burner, link. credit Tony

    That said, I think this is a Meva 1 example w/orig. silent burner. Is your burner like this?

    Welcome, @AdrianLevi.

    If your jet is just “blocked” with carbon, you can prick it in place.

    Is there a pricker with your stove? If not, use a fine piece of brass wire from a brush or a high E guitar string.

    Prickers are available on line. I might have a spare somewhere.

    Hi guys, thanks for the responses!

    Kerophile, Thanks for the link to fettlebox, now I know such a place exists, they will be receiving some of my money. Can you enlighten me which kit would suit this Meva?

    OMC, This Meva is a roarer but I have another Primus somewhere that I wish to get going as well, it has a silent.

    Tony, I did have one somewhere that my grandfather gave me way before I ever had a stove, sadly it has been misplaced through several moves.

    @AdrianLevi

    I’ll look in my shed for one.

    Cheers

    Welcome to CCS, Adrian.
    I have found some jets too blocked to clear with a pricker.
    Once the nipple is removed from the burner I heat the nipple to a dull red and drop in cold water. The heat and cold break up the crud allowing it to be removed.
