Hmmmm thought I'd already replied?

Anyhoo I'll play again, and I did promise to light a lantern next. 
So after I tie a mantle on the beater (bugs holed last one) and it gets a little darker I'll light one.
And since you included a stove... and we're Stovies lol

Drizzle outside so this became a garage job.

These 2 came together from a small shop that had an old collectors bits n bobs, so only right to light them together.
Silklite 999 on the 200A, I lit it first.
Couldn't hear the 200A once the Optimus 00 hit full stride, the thing is a true Roarer.
00 could do with a little clean as there's a bit of yellow in the flames, but it really is a rocket engine! 

Great way to liven the heart rate up this evening 🙂

49 CA 500 import-(Thanks Alex)
2013 282 unleaded 1

Think it's time to give both gennys a clean, 500 gets a lot of use and the 282 was a bit flarey whilst it took its time to warm up.

i made a custom windshield for my 500 but got flame lift off whenever i used the stove.
maybe i could redo the windshield but really it isn’t necessary were i ordinarily use the stove.
i might be able to light up a lantern tonite as there is a break in the weather at this time.

nice looking 500 by the way.✅😎 i passed up a nice nickel plated 500 a few years ago. there was a good reason at the time but i sure wish i’d brought it home
all good.

Buzz--I was having problems with the flame lifting off the burner on my 500A. Tightening the screws that retain the burner cap and rings seems to have fixed it. Give it a try!

Buzz, MrAlexxx reached out with an offer for the 500, though the shipping was rather high down to NZ I was and am a very happy Stovie with it!
I was worried the wind shield may cause issues being an almost complete enclosure, but even with a CI pan on it I've had no issues.... yet.
I have alway got some flame lift off if I gave it too many pumps, this one doesn't need a lot of pressure to be happy.

Very interesting. I didn’t known lift off was possible till I installed the windshield and happened to read about it in one of the threads dedicated to 500 windshields.
i did replace the screws after breaking one off trying to unscrew it. We easy outed the broken screw and I replaced them both with new.
i had not checked to see if I had tightened them enough, so that could be the problemo
thanks for the headsup

I moved my collection up to the dacha, so I'm out of lanterns to light in the city, only a 530 and the wagons 421D left unlit down here.
530 was giving me a hard time last time I fired it up, time to clean probably.

Gave the genny a clean and no problem lighting, my flame bowl is a bit bent up and the spreader is home made, so flame is hot but uneven.
Need to do another dunk test as I appear to have a very slow/long loss of pressure. 
But there's my light for today, now apart from the 421D I'm out till I head north.

Check valve is the culprit, you can just see the little bubble coming from pump vent, about one every 30-40 seconds.
I'll try some carb cleaner after I pick some up.
Glad it's nothing more serious 🙂

pretty cool inspection of slow leak.
for some strange reason the fuel cap on my 530 seemed to not seal properly?

so i swapped in another cap of known quality and she fires up eventually 
once she is going seems to do fine,

nice flame spreader ✅😎

Still drizzling here, but with water restrictions in place for our largest city we won't complain, but means I'm still in the garage.

Friday night burgers on the 421D. 
I love this $1 bid stove, got it a year ago from a guy who said his mum or dad got it back when he was young, obviously used a plenty, and now lives in the wagon ready for plenty more use, Everything a Coleman is known for 🙂

I like this moment when the air lever is just turned down, the last of the rising yellow flame just going blue.

I'll jump in again because who doesn't like lighting things up???  🙂
Another oddball stove I haven't lit in a while. FRIEND CAMPERS STOVE made in Japan...I think??? Usually seen as a coil alcohol burner but also occasionally as a small powerful gasoline fueled roarer. This is the roarer version and is kind of a neat little unit and don't let it's small size fool you. This thing COOKS! 

Friend1.jpg 

Comes with a neat little preheat torch that you just dip into the fuel tank to use as a preheat source. No need to pack any extra priming can. 

Friend2.jpg 

Lighting instructions suggest opening the fuel valve a crack after closing the fuel tank and then holding the lit torch against the burner. 20-30 seconds later the stove starts automatically. That's what the instructions on the tin say and by golly that's the way it works. 

Friend3.jpg 

Friend4.jpg 

20-30 seconds later away it goes. Starts slow but within a minute pressure builds up and you get a pretty good sized roaring completely adjustable flame from a nice low simmer to full on inferno.
