355122BB-8B45-4EAC-9051-205D98E800C7.jpeg  Well my wife and son know what I like. Especially if I leave hints. I had been watching this unfired stove for a few months. Even had a couple of price drops. When she said they would get it for me for Father’s Day. But I had to wait so today is the day. Now next question to add fire or leave it new?🤔

It's only unfired once!

Now THAT'S a time capsule. 

If that's the combo pump/fuel cap, it may not be safe to fire up yet anyway.  If the combo, there are four O-rings, three of which are readily replaceable.  The most critical is the one hidden under the end of the poppet.  Look up info on Thermos pumps here on the forum.  If the combo, your safest bet may be to put that cap/pump aside, look for a replacement in classifieds, and modify it to take a Schrader valve, eliminating the need for the pump.

Thanks guys for bringing me to my senses. The unfired aspect is one thing that I liked about it. But you know about  temptation. And I do have 4 other  2 burners to use. With 2 waiting for a fettle or being broken down for parts required for a possible build I am considering.  The pump is the combo which I know are problematic. I tested it and it works for now.  For the time being it is sitting on my Display shelf. Probably to never allow a money shot. But as Jim said it is a cool time capsule. 🙂

You can always find a user, unfurled is much harder to come by. I would have a hard time firing that one personally

Really nice gift you got there, Lee, very nice looking stove.  I'm a bit late to the voting portion of this thread, but it's good to know you won't be using it.

Nice!  My wife told me I had to much cast iron and then turned around a bought me a Marquette Castings 6qt enamel dutch oven for Father's Day!  I only have 9 cast iron items -- old, new and various sizes.  I have about twenty lanterns and a half dozen stoves but since they reside in the garage I guess that's OK.
