    Hi all!

    Wanted to share some 1550 action in the Swedish autumn evening. Also got a Optimus 5R stove running in one of the pictures.

    Regards Matti Kucer

    Looking good Matti !

    I fired up my 1550 tonight. Super bright, love that Swedish engineering...but then I've been driving Saabs for 25 years!

    My 1550 needs repumping/repressurising every 10 minutes or so. Cant see any fuel leaks. Any thoughts?

    I would guess its air leaking out either from the fuel lid or from the quick igniter. Dip the preassurized tank in water.

    Regards Matti
