The "Not so Exact" modifications:
1. Remove valve from burner head
2. find an appropriate length of aluminum tubing to run up through the reflector plate, around the burner, and back down to the burner. (from the picture, you can't tell, but my tubing was a little short)
My Al tubing and fitting came from an old gas water heater control that I threw in my junk box. It had a fitting that was too small to thread up into the burner, but temporarily, I was able to make it work by wrapping it with steel wool and screwing it up into the burner.
3. I did have to very slightly enlarge the vent slots in the reflector plate to accomodate my tubing.
4. Cross you fingers, pray to God, and try not to use the F word too many times when you start the shaping/bending of the tubing up through the reflector plate, around the burner, back down through the reflector, and then.... a 90 deg. bend up into the burner!!!!!!! Geeze OH Pete this took some time and patience (and 4 beers)!
5. I had a braided hose and remote valve that I borrowed from my Primus EtaPower stove and made a connection with that to my tubing with a short piece of automotive fuel line.
Now...... remember, (before anyone starts yelling about the rubber fuel line) this was only for testing purposes on my prototype. I wouldn't want to leave it like this, mainly because that fuel line is heavy, not because it's unsafe.
ABout the brass tubing legs: Yes, they suck! They're light, but they're not something I'm real happy with. My tube bending skills aren't the best (on the preheat tube) and I was just tired of fooling with it at this point, So I raised it up to accommodate the large bend I had to make up into the burner.
Did this cover it?
