    I have long lusted after a 25 in the early model with the holder for the burner in the upper wind sheild.
    A few days ago my dream came through, from a nice lady who got it as a present from her mother in 1968.

    I will bring it along on my next trip and see how it compares to the latest anodised 25:s with gas burners....

    All the best!

    Interesting, that the Spirit Burner has no threaded cap and the simmer ring has a fixed hinge. I have a late '70s Trangia burner with a threaded cap and the same kind of simmer ring, but with a detachable wire clip that encircles the neck. I'm still looking for a 25-type kit. I may get crazy with a thriftstore BSA mess kit, a drill gun and a holesaw, and create my own.

    Very nice.
    Clean the holes in the burner. You should have a much more consistent flame pattern.
    I think you'll find interesting "actual use" differences between this and the modern version. While I really like the earlier kits for their historical and cosmetic appeal, the modern kits are, to me, much more user friendly.
    I'll be interested in hearing your comparisons / results.

    Nice! Judging by the burner it's pre 1961. :D

    A short update,

    Instead of spending the weekend out in the woods cooking and hiking I am laid low by a terrible cold/lung infection.
    My youngets son is just on the mend from the same after a broad spectrum anti-biotic. So, I am not looking forward to a week of fever and coughing. Being a real man, I am almost dead with half a degree of temperature...

    So many stoves, so little time.

    Sorry be you are ill. The stove waited maybe 40 years to come to your hands. We can wait a while longer for you to test it for us. Get well soon.
