    Fired it up last evening, no pics, but it came to life on first prime. Will clean some more and get pics on next fire.

    Flame is a little off but it brought a cup of water to a rolling boil in about 2 minutes.

    Oooo.... I like the cap on the jet. Mine must be missing that. I'll have to find a substitute.
    Any more pics of the cap?

    It's a generic cap, but I've seen 2 pics of "shiny" 88s with them. Amazing that this one is intact with a used kit.
    It goes over the threads so the id of it is about 13mm.
