The burner is interesting. After blowing it out and waiting about 1 min., maybe less, fuel will start shooting out of the jet hole. The coil is still hot. The burner is still very warm. It's necessary to loosen the cap on the fill port to prevent the fuel from coming out. Must be why they have some type of heat resistand plug to put through the center of the coil.

I have some coil burners that use a piece of cork where the taykit uses a rubber sleeve wrapped around the filler funnel.

So the taykit has nothing to seal the jet hole?

Have you had a chance to look at the Classic Stoves website? They have the original factory instructions manual for the taykit. Try this link: http://www.spiritburner.com/fusion/show ... p?tid/576/

It may answer some of your questions. Hope it helps.

Thank You ggarris, that was a helpfull link. :D Whenever I visit that site I spend at least an hour browsing :roll: I have not had the time to browse lately.

Nice to be able to have all that info available.

This page shows the rubber funnel/stopper for the coil. The one on the lower left.

Thanks again ggarris

If you refer back to the third post on this thread and take notice of the second photo I inserted, you can see the funnel/stopper sitting in front of the assembled stove and also another one inserted in the coil of the unassemble stove. ;)

Yep, as described, it glows cherry red. Better the deflector than the bottom of the pot taking the full force of the flame. ;)

I've had a thought to use this stove with "butanol" as fuel. anyone know where we can purchase butanol?
