    First attempt didn’t go too well as I neglected to have the arrow on the wheel in the up position and instead had it down and only realized the error too late.
    I damaged the mantle while taking the burner out to clean the globe so had to replace it.
    Second attempt with an alcohol preheat and its running well.

    @Andrew T Been there, done that... I know what you mean. The arrow is the opposite from what most of them are. Can get confusing...:-k
