    Wow, that's a great find. I've never seen a suitcase stove where the burners are hardwired to the tank. In the second photo I'm wondering what that metal rod is for that goes beneath the burners. It's a little dusty but everything seems to be there and I'm sure it will clean up nicely. Congratulations on a great score.

    Well a.bit of an.update. Got the genny apart but destroyed the coil getting it out but replaced it with a Coleman coil. Cleaned up the cast manifold and soaked the burner parts and misc hardware overnight in citric acid solution then used wire wheel to clean the parts up. Carefully cleaned the tank so as not to destroy the stencil. Re assembled everything added fuel pumped it up and it lit. After a couple of minutes pump started dripping fuel, no big deal but then it started spraying fuel where the genny screws into the valve and over the burning flame. Darn a bit of excitement so I shut it down . Shouldn't be too much to make a pip and thread sealer on the genny rod

    Been so busy but I dug this out tonight while moving stuff to the new shed. A friend made me some new pips so I cleaned up the pump assy added new pip and pressured it up. No leaks so fired it up.
    Yes, another PW saved.
