Found this online and it looks interesting and familiar but being so new to the game I could use some help with ID. This is the only picture the ad has. Click image for larger version - Name: 2DEA7B8B-D393-4F3B-8812-AC67DB17AC02.jpeg, Views: 149, Size: 110.26 KB

8R or clone like Steve said.  If cheap, go for it.  Other wise request more photos.

$10 if I can get to it before everyone else does. It’s in a town about an hour away but I have a friend going there tomorrow.

You won't beat $10 for that!   Assuming you'll need a fuel cap gasket, the Coleman 1-piece fuel cap gasket is a perfect fit.

Put it this way, I would have paid $10 for my knockoff 8R - but I paid a lot more instead.
This one looks fairly complete.

Well you all talked me into it LOL. Friend of mine is supposed to grab it tomorrow if it doesn’t get sold before then. If it all works out I’ll post up some more pics.

It is a Korean made 8R clone called the Precise Phoenix backpacking stove. Go get it and enjoy.

Well my friend picked it up for me yesterday and it’s indeed a Precise Phoenix Backpacker. Cost me $15 and it is missing the fuel knob but it’s a pretty cool setup. First thought this thing being totally new to me is how do you pump it? Also it looks like there is a wick of some sorts in the tank. I took it apart enough to see if the pricker would move and it doesn’t right now. Something looks a little off to me where it is, I tried to get as good of a picture of the pricker as I could. Also any ideas where to look for a fuel knob?  Click image for larger version - Name: 6DC56C5F-A6C1-4BCF-8105-D6181AE9797F.jpeg, Views: 98, Size: 112.10 KB Click image for larger version - Name: 77435321-5CC0-4DCB-A69D-440796B3140A.jpeg, Views: 98, Size: 105.28 KB Click image for larger version - Name: 259645B9-F2DF-4F39-BE72-5C2CD376A0D9.jpeg, Views: 99, Size: 186.10 KB

You can see here where the hole where the pricker goes looks to be blocked Click image for larger version - Name: 1C5CAB10-4599-4594-92D1-86020DB39682.jpeg, Views: 96, Size: 75.89 KB

The cup below the burner is your preheat cup.  Get some alcohol or CF in there and light it.  Alcohol would be preferred so you don't get soot. The stove is self-pressurizing from the heat, which will conduct from the burner/plumbing. 

For a valve key, take it to an antique store and check out their clock winding keys.  I believe my Optimus clone uses a #2 key.

If they copied its Euro counterpart well, then a Coleman single piece fuel cap gasket will be a perfect fit for the fuel cap in that.

The wick in the tank goes up into the burner riser tube (drawing a blank on the real name).  The wick may be OK, but if you ever run it out of fuel, you can char the wick and it won't work or won't work properly.  To replace it, you need cotton like from cotton mop strand.  If using a mop strand, burn a piece first to make certain it's cotton.  If it melts, it isn't cotton.  I had read on the CCS that a gauze bandage would work and tried it when I couldn't find a cotton strand.  It works just fine.  Even though the bandage seems small, it's folded up and when you unfold it, you'll have the right amount.

Just unscew that jet and see what is going on in there. 

A clock key can be picked up in most junk/antique place and works good for a fuel knob. Take stove or measure to get the right one.

I remember the first time I looked at one of these (actually a Russian clone) thinking "where is the pump?"

https://fettlebox.co.uk is a great site for getting parts for these foreign made stoves. Any parts for the Optimus 8R should be relevant.  As Jim said it is self-pressurizing, but the more fuel you have in it the less pressure you'll get.  You can buy pumps for them that I fit over the fuel cap, I believe, and I would guess these were only used in low temp/high altitude situations.

My clone has much different threads on things so no hard parts....like the cap and pump....will work. YMMV
