MSR ID

Post by Pancholoco1911 »

I am well aware this is NOT a stove place but anyways I’ll ask this. I need you guys to help ID this stove before I go ahead and get it, I’m not a MSR fan but this seems like an old one.

That looks pretty cool. I'd definitely grab that.

I don't know much about the MSR stoves other than they're cool.

Looks like a very early model G, gasoline only. Bakelite base (they didn't last), no generator over the top like a GK, yellow pump. I'd guess mid-'70s? Aluminum fuel siphon is different from any MSR I have, too. Send those pics to MSR and maybe get an answer.

I’m not sure that’s damage. I’ve flipped a few of these early Model 9s. You’ve got early parts including the Sigg bottle with the MSR safety label, early pump and the simmer plate that looks like the top to a can of tomatoes. Missing the tin cup that the stove sits in. Look closely at this pic from the MSR gear history. The burner was cut to allow the striker to move in and out. It might need some adjustment but I don’t think it is “damage.” Although I would defer to Duane as the expert on these.

De nada! classic camp stoves has some great threads on the early MSR stoves and lots of pics. I think Duane has made some nice contributions there too. The pump is not the earliest and the pot support length will help tell the model and age. Good luck!

Eager to see it when it arrives and compare to the one I have. Unfortunately, I do not have all the bits yours does, only the burner. Nice score on the early on. My vote is an early 9, 9a, or 9b based on loose bits of brain matter, not really attached to reality, from previous searches.

Nice stove . I think it is a Model G- gas only. The G I had was the same color and had a small cotter pin thru a hole in the bottom of the burner bell , which was supposed to help let fuel drip down to the priming pad to help with preheat. The one pic that shows two stoves , you notice the scalloped burner bell on the left stove which looks to be early model 9 ?, the blue one has a flatter generator loop which was either "Dual" fuel or Multi fuel Models. I own the silver one in the other pics that is near the same as Pancho's,but with the added generator loop, which is a G-K- model -Gas-Kerosene The stove body is cut out by the sparker to be able to remove it for service. Once removed, the hard pipe fuel line is turned to the right thru the notch to remove the burner bell/fuel line from the pan wires /base. The Sigg fuel bottle was the standard used with the safety label, before MSR made their own. I think the yellow pumps changed slightly in the years they were produced. Great old proven classic mountain stove. Fun stoves to run, Post some pics when you get it running. Just my 2 cents.

I need a picture of the fuel line and especially the block where the fuel line connects to the pump. If it has a date stamp, that's where it will be.

From the Bakelite, base, it's early, because, as you can see, the Bakelite base falls apart after some use. Another part MSR replaced on my early GK--even if they deny it, they did it.

I'm a little late to this, the Notch is not damage, I'll find pics of my early Model G and post. ** edited ** Hmm, no pics, I'll drag it off shelf for pics, and Yellow Pumps are pretty rare these days!

Actually mine is a 9A. No dates on latch. Traded in yellow pump in 2006 (mistake) but have since found two more.

Bought NEW in 1975 or so at Oregon State Univ. Used for decades. Pic of Bro Dan and I at Phantom Ranch Grand Canyon 1986 or so with TWO yellow pump MSR stoves.

And the thing that looks like a can lid is an original early MSR simmer plate.

Keep it with the stove!

Yes! And originally had a metal cup, aluminum windscreen/heat concentrator, and two different diameter aluminum base plates. The tool shown is from a maintenance kit.

Pretty sure it’s a 9A. The first model 9s had a masonite base. There’s a ton of info on CCS. Start here.

Mine reassemble this

Look at the striker knob in the 9a and the knob in the G

Or striker could have replaced at some time. I need to look closer over CCS link provided and started by hikerduane. Thanks guys, this stove looks interesting 🧐
