    Found this transitional K, Primus made other changes to stoves over the years, but guess this year is where a transitional model was also introduced. One pic does show the early K on the left, it has the air screw off by itself.
    Stove needed a new pump cup, brass mesh added to lipstick, fill cap washer, lead burner to replace the hard washer under the burner, NRV poked. Ran fairly well surprisingly as most need the jet peened.

    Bummed a little. The NRV weeps just a tiny bit and my setup to hold the Swedish NRV tool down to remove the NRV isn't working, it still wants to rise off the NRV head, so will leave it. Not much of a issue. Thank you guys.

    The spanner for the late model K is notably thicker and cruder. Is the 'Sweden' stamping slightly raised as well? Here's a link to a 1916 Primus spanner with the aforementioned raised contours: 1916 Primus 96

    The spanner is a slight upgrade from the plain ones on the "A" and earlier model, as it has "Primus" stamped on both sides. I need to research and see when the double "Primus" spanner was used as a few of my collection have that old one, most are stamped with Primus and Sweden.

    That plain wrench must be original to your 'A' outfit as well. Mine also came with the plain version. Interesting observation regarding the double ''Primus'' stamp. I shall have a gander at mine when I get the chance.

    A few parts get moved around and also carried over by the factory. I see the fuel cap for a earlier stove has the wrong fuel cap, switched it out for a older cap I had. I have some windshields I need to match to stoves, gave one away recently so may be down a nice one.
