    Looks good Fred. :)

    I have wondered about these filler caps on the 1020 etc. I have seen them in a catalogue but never in real life. Is it the same size as the one for the 1082?

    Hello Nils,

    No it's slightly smaller ( will have to double check on that ) i would not be able to tell the build year on this one as the whole bottom has been soldered due to rust at some point, but the preheater cup has that riveted shield, it has the old metal wheel and the pressure gauge fitting.

    Assuming all the parts are original, is it an aluminium or asbestos washer under the top nut? If it is aluminium, then I would guess the year to be 1938 otherwise 1937.

    Ok Nils, so the wingnut lid is a replacement you think ? it is shown in the 1945 catalog.

    No aluminium washer, only asbestos.

    Btw, The lid it self is totally different in design compared to the 1082 design.

    I just don't know whether the filler cap is original or not. They are not very common so there isn't much information to go by. The rest of the parts look like they would fit in with a 1937 date.

    Ok, 1937 then, must say she looks good in that case, compared to some people born in 1937 :-)

    Not sure if the fuel filler would be a winged type for a 1937/38. But its still a Primus part. Looks great. Especially when it still works.

    A rare find! Please educate me; what are the differences between the 1019 and 1020?

    Phil, the main (only?) difference is that the 1019 has a tank made out of nickel plated steel instead of brass.
    ...which of course is one explanation to its rarity :lol:.
