    HECK of a flame. :thumbup: Take it easy on that pump there. You don't want to trip the SRV.

    Whoa - you are switching burners on us without telling. First you have that gorgeous flame with a regular flame spreader, and all of a sudden there's a BD minicap instead!!!

    No kidding. It's amazing :shock: how big that flame gets when the SRV does its job.

    Learned I could have been a place kicker in high school instead of a running back when I blew the mini-pump off my 99. :whistle:

    The running back skills came in handy, too.

    Hi Jim. Your right one has to be careful when using the mini pump. Those flame shots are taken after the stove boiled some water for tea and has 3 pumps from the mini pump.
    The funny thing about pump caps is the NRV fails first instead of the SRV. With the SRV opening around 50 to 55 PSI the NRV won't be able to hold much more than 40. Still testing though.

    Cheers,
    Jeff
