    Got this SVEA by way of Denmark. Thanks Harder! :) Weird thing figured it would be a fairly easy fettle and imagine my surprise when I looked down the pump tube. What the heck?? No accessible NRV. I've seen that on a MEVA but my other SVEA like this has the removable NRV. Doesn't look like it was ever apart but who knows what might have happened in years past? Maybe an early version whereby the later ones had the NRV fix?? Who knows...Awwwww...if they were all easy they would soon be no fun, correct? lol

    Unsoldering the pump tube to fix the NRV. My least favorite thing to do. Uhhhggg!!! :(

    Don't do that!

    Look under the tank and see what you find....

    Well...that sure makes it easy. So there you go looking for something difficult and something easy is right there before your eyes. First stove I've had with that under the tank NRV. Thanks for being so gentle on me you guys. Never too old to learn a new thing. Many thanks...

    Alex :)
