A wick around the stem improves priming
I discovered that a short length of wood stove door gasket, (1/4" diameter from ACE hardware), really improves cold-weather priming. Tie it or wire it one at the base of the stem at the indent...

Nothing like a cloud of mosquitoes to deliver clarity on the subject

Optimus/Primus? Svea 123R
