I absolutely had no need for a three burner but every stovie should have at least one, right? Got it about a year ago and have lit it up a couple times just for kicks. Didn't do much except the cap gasket. Kind of interesting firing these old ones up. They require a preheat which is done with the fuel in the tank which is directed into a priming cup by manually lifting up a little baffle plate allowing the fuel to flow from the end of the generator into the priming cup. Once a sufficient amount of fuel is in the priming cup light that and after a few seconds sounds like a jet engine taking off as any fuel left in the generator vaporizes and ignites. They call this the "hot blast preheat". If all goes well it settles down in a few seconds with the generator hot enough and the burner will light. This one burns quite well on all three burners. Not sure if it was a repaint by a previous owner or not as I have seen a few overspray factory splash paint jobs. Splish splash get them down the assembly line as fast as they can and out the door. So who knows?
