    This is the version of the silent burner of optimus No 11 86296502-C277-48F5-A052-08BD24D43F9B.jpeg The picture below is what I got when I got it. 9A28192F-C0A1-400D-803E-FA97DE193803.jpeg I have rusted the outer casing.

It is enough to close the valve clockwise and then insert the needle. The needle is exposed when the valve is closed


    The connection between the fuel tank and the iron box is also relatively simple, without bolts. 96336F40-ABBE-42AA-B9E5-5999A7A79BB4.jpeg 19C5135D-9367-4B5D-9C89-C2A0DBD1A471.jpeg DEFA1640-44E4-4AE4-8726-37EC4AC5F589.jpeg

    Starting with the ancient ancestor Campingo, and the development of optimus 11, three different versions, and the early version 111 E5541666-F015-4C02-9D88-312815FB271D.jpeg 7D4D7A08-63E0-46A2-81A7-EBE79433BF49.jpeg 30F6930D-3D8A-427C-8B94-A21F70031E08.jpeg 55B312D0-BC8F-41DF-8498-FCE4F22A9F9F.jpeg 2CFF29A8-772E-4FD6-8568-CA83305479BE.jpeg 85918855-9BBD-4D1E-97E5-BF03A7D01B27.jpeg 5CD9EFA3-2AC0-4B6A-9B15-5B6A0B8C72CE.jpeg A3CB0D39-1684-4957-820D-4E95BDDC3207.jpeg

    Very nice and well done
    I like to see the pump at the front, il is more practical. Is there any specific reasons why they moved it on the side
    Thank for sharing

    I' not sure, but I guess that from the side a longer pump assembly is possible and a longer stroke means less times pumping.

    Really nice posting @anfeng and a beautiful collection.

    Does anyone know if this silent burner ever existed or if someone handy in brazing/soldering has made a one-off?

    @Staffan Rönn Except that the end of the valve shaft appears to be handmade, the other parts should be factory processed.
