    I spend five minutes trying to re-fit the pricker till I found it fits the opposite side to the normal 111 :doh: .

    That would be on account of the fact that the left hand burner is assembled differently to deliver the control knob as a mirror image to the right hand burner :lol:

    Hence the oft repeated warnings to look after that burner - you can replace the other one with a burner from a 111, but you can't get a spare left hand burner.

    I haven't looked recently, but I think I worked out a few years ago when I first got my 22 that the left hand burner actually uses all the same components, just assembled differently. Therefore if someone was competent at brazing they could disassemble a normal 111 burner and reassemble to deliver a 22 left hand burner. I'll have to take another look tonight.
