Hello To All I recently acquired an old Svea 123 from the evil bay. This one has some Sievert stamping and I believe it to be all original. Stamp on wind screen... ... on burner bell... ... etc... ... etc. This one burns quite nicely. I had only to change the tank lid rubber bits. Also, I gave the burner bell and flame plate a brass wire brush scrubbing. Some fresh CF and it fired right up. What I did notice is that the flame plate is a little bent. That one is a simple enough fix. However, the burner bell is frozen to the vaporizer and out of round. Also, the vaporizer is cross threaded into the tank. As for the burner bell, I am confident that I will be able to release it then carefully tap it back into reasonable shape. Cross threaded vaporizers is something I haven't come across yet and the thought of it is giving me acid reflux. I know these fittings are a specially threaded and tapered. I plan on running the stove as it is and giving it special care as a user. If somewhere along the line I need to get deeper into this stove, would it be possible to have the cross threaded vaporizer / fount connection buttoned up and functional after it is apart? I like this stove very much. I'd appreciate any input, especially from some of you who may have run into this issue before.
