    This 1924 Primus 14 came to me from France. There are a number of small differences between it and the 1932 model I have. Especially the burner.

    Unlike the 1932 model the burner tube opposite the valve is simply for support. No fuel flows through it.

    The burner skirt with the holes is permanently attacked to the burner itself. There is an inside burner cap and an outer cap that fits on top.

    The stove can be easily adjusted to a simmer using the control knob.

    After replacing the pump leather and firing the stove up, it kept clogging. Suspecting a build up of gunk in the burner, I sent it to Gary "BernieDawg" Adams for a clean out. He cleaned the burner, repacked the spindle, replaced the nipple, and fitted a new fill cap gasket. As you can see the stove runs great so a big "THANKS" to Gary.
