    This is an early FL5 flood lamp. It has the twin inlet burner with the blanking plate on the back of the reflector. XN control cock with long spindle and the narrow pump with raised lettering and bayonet NRV. It also has the sprung door catch.

    Thanks Steve, Yes had it going a few times. It's very bright when it's warmed up. In fact it was running at Ashover.

    Beautiful restoration Matthew, :thumbup: :thumbup:

    It's nice to see these not only looking so good, but being used on occasion.
