My No.5 1960 as indicated by number on upright.
Hi @NIbiker . Good looking stove and lovely blue flame pattern. It is a bonus to have the date coding as well.
Please will you take and add to this thread, some additional photos of your stove. In particular of the lettering on the tank top and base, and main features such as pump knob, filler cap and air-release screw and date code.
We do not have many examples of this relatively late Primus No.5 stove, and in such fine fettle.
These are great work-horses of stoves and offer a wide range of power settings. I reckon yours will offer twice as much power on maximum with a bit more pumping.
Thanks for posting,
As requested kerophile.
Thanks for the extra photos. The dog is a bonus!
I have never seen an “O” ring mounted adjacent to a Primus pump knob before. Did you fit it.
Well spotted, I fitted that myself as a little shock absorber
Oooh, another neat Mod.
Can you fix the horn the brakes don't work type of thing.
Rapped.nuckles due to worn leathers is possibly more common than 8 key branding.
