    Looks complete to me. It has suffered a bit but still a nice thing. Has the slot to convert to AL16 as well. Looks like a good project. ::Neil::

    The heat-shield is inverted, of course. Beats me why folk replace them like that...

    image.jpg Like this do you mean David?
    Graham P mentions a rod that fits into the slot in the top frame of the mica globe holder to keep the globe from swinging back. Has anyone ever seen one?

    Those pins tend to break off right at the burner.
    Have a close look at your 2 air tube burners Jean, you may have one.
    Some pins are longer than others too.

    1/8" Brass rod, spot of silver solder, not a bad job to replace :thumbup:

    Thanks Anthony and Alec, it seems to have broken off at the burner right enough so John will see what he can do.

    Keep us posted on progress.
    I believe they are threaded in.
