Looking for some AGM experience and knowledge. Picked up this KampKook stove awhile back because it had cast iron burners. It was full of old RUG so I disassembled the tank and flushed it out real good. Clean the pickup tube and air orfice. Cleaned the generator by disassembling and propane torching it red hot till it quit burning off, then flushed it out. Assembled all back together and then cleaned out the the air circuit of the burner manifold, nice and clean no obstructions. Now when I fire it up I'm getting an air fuel mixture like I would with any other lantern or stove but just cracking the valve gives me a 530 experience that never goes away with any amount of preheat. Here's a picture.
IMG_20200708_131018_copy_600x800.jpg  this was with a propane preheat... And fuel valve just cracked with air valve one turn open.
So I looked closer at the gen tip and it looks way to big to me... Not too mention very little taper for adjustment? Idk I'm not a big stovie to begin with but have always been able to figure out what was going on with them by the way they were acting... If I didn't know any better I would think the air system of the burners was restricted but that's definitely not what's going on here. Here's a picture of the gen tip disassembled.
IMG_20200708_130505_copy_1024x1365.jpg  any other insight? Adjustment I'm missing? Thanks for any help

You're on the right track - obviously too much fuel.

I'd suspect the orifice is enlarged or the tip is loose. Even if it doesn't feel loose you might put a couple dabs of copper anti-seize on the threads and re-tighten.

Thanks Chuck, yeah I thought of that also.. Had a 502 a couple weeks ago kind of doing the same thing and it ended up being a deformation on the end of the generator causing a leak which of course caused a flooding issue. But this one has the threads on the outside of the burner like my gas plant does.
IMG_20200708_135536_copy_1024x1365.jpg  definitely got me scratching my head. I'm still thinking it's in the orfice end of the generator as it's all or nothing I'm guessing there's some taper missing or worn somewhere... When I disassembled to clean the inside of the orfice it was caked up with what I'm assuming was years of burning RUG residue... Not sure where in going to find the parts if that's the case ðŸ˜

Are these LCS-41s? Looks identical besides the pump?

That looks possible... I'll see if I can find a breakdown on this generator. Someone may have left it out over the years.. Not sure

Just looked at the end of my 3burner generator (is same as yours) and the needle fits into the tip opening with very little clearance. Not sure if that helps you.....

And fyi those fat gennys take a LOT of preheat, not just a few seconds with a torch like a skinny genny.

Thanks Keith, that's kind of what I was afraid of... Now I just need to find out if I can find some replacement parts... I had given that large generator a good long torch heat up prior to firing up.

Pulled apart another genny and yup got that little insert in it. So I have one if you need it or buy it from Mike.

The Thermos one Mike has will fit this AGM? I've got a list with him, I'll just add it to that if so. Thanks for all the trouble

Thermos/AGM same thing for the most part. The one I just looked at was, appearance wise, like the one in the link above.

If it doesn't work, you are out a buck, and I still have one.....

Very good.  

I had my 3 burner Kampkook out last night, seriously nice old stoves.

Now cook something!

I'll have to do it when the wife is away... Don't want her thinking I can fend for myself.... ðŸ˜
On a side note this thing will put a 425 to shame on BTU output! Wow!
