    This arrived today and will need minor fettle. No burner washers at all so no flame shot or it might end up as a fireball.

    It's marked as 1935. I've browsed around the gallery and not seen any with the heater.


    How common is the heater kit? Would this have been original equipment?


    Cheers

    Hi what a brilliant score and with a heater attachment you must fit some of kerophiles heat proof washers, and it will be great if you add some pics of it running and with the heater attachment

    DISCUStingly nice :-)
    Tank to riser is a taper thread ... no seal required .
    7al wraps of ptfe tape will provide a useable riser to burner seal .
    The 54 is lovely ... Are there any markings on the heat bowl/reflector/wireworks ?

    I keep scrolling up and dribbling :-)
    Nice.
    Nick.

    Glad you like it. I thought it was a bit unusual.

    Brass monkey is helping out with some washers, thanks! (kerophile is a bit far from NZ)

    There is no markings on the heater kit at all, so no clues there.

    Cheers

    I fitted new washers and fired it up. A slight issue with a leaking jet but all good now.
