The cleaning wire looks like it should unscrew as it has a knurled section, but it’s not for budging. Wanted to check it definitely should unscrew before I apply more pressure? Whilst I’m here, same situation on the clean/gas valve wheel. It looks as though it should unscrew but again if anyone can provide some assurance before I increase the elbow torque, that would be great. Thanks.

    The pricker rod certainly unscrews but I can't remember if the controls also do. Likely do though. ::Neil::

    Thank you. I’ll have another go today with a little more confidence! Interesting fuel arrangement on these with the two valves. How reliable/functional is it?

    It's been a long time since I fired one of these up but I seem to recall they worked pretty well. ::Neil::

    Yep, nice and easy when you know you’re not going to break it!
