    I was gifted this a few months ago.
    And last week I was gifted a pump. I got the pump the other day, so I took the time today to pressure test it. I had cleaned it up and checked it out last week.
    It passed the pressure test in a bucket of water, so I put CF in it, pressurized it, and following directions, opened the valve then shut it. But, I guess I let out too much fuel, so I waited a while for some to evaporate, then lit it with a torch to heat up the curl in the generator.
    It lit the brand new #21 mantles and settled into a nice light. I put the mica chimney in, put the top on, and here is proof it works.
    I have a new mica chimney paid for, and will soon be in the mail.

    The majority of 327s seen have the fuel control knob factory positioned 90 degrees left of the fuel fill cap.
