Re: EDIT: IR - Brunton Vapor Stove Kevin H
- Hey Sheila,
Thanks for the edits. Sorry to be so much trouble. I just wanted to
start off fresh. I corrected the edits. I took your advice on
replaceing two sentences, but on the suggestion

until firm resistance is felt. According to the provided manual, this
usually occurs in "approximately 20-25 full strokes.""
It just sounded better to me.
I also added the length of the fuel line "Coming from the side of the
control valve is a 11.5 in ( 29.2 cm) braided steel fuel hose that is
used to connect the fuel source to the stove."
I also changed amended to added.
I will upload the report as soon as the folder is there.
