    This is a 1931 Primus 405 which has a nickel plated steel tank.

    I had to replace the Non Return Valve pip and fashion a new viton gasket for the fuel cap. With that it fired right up and ran like a champ.

    I purchased this Primus 1153 stove shelter. It came with the Primus 405 inside which was a big surprise.
