Re: How many years do you all get out of a car battery?

3-5 years here in the states. I purchased a new 2004 made in Japan 4Runner that was delivered with a Panasonic battery. It lasted (the battery) 14 years. After it finally died I found out you can’t get them here.

Re: Seems like Silly Money to me...

I expected it to be sillier. At least it’s real. I’ve seen Coleman stickers just thrown on a cabinet and seen the silly money phenomenon happen too. Too bad somebody hit all the labels with a black sharpie.

Re: Cleaning a F/A tube with metering rod (long winded)

That was great! Even tho I am fluent in F/A operation, you gave me an ah ha! moment with the too large of a pickup hole giving a rich light up experience. I have at least one I may want to just replace the current F/A assembly

Re: 220F fount threads, etc

It will screw in. It’s meant to be tight. I think your efforts are better spent trying to multiply the efforts to screw it in. Homemade fount vise with wrench, or strap wrench with fount upside down and valve in a vise.

Re: 220E Burner Frame Removal

The problem isn’t likely to be between the tip cleaner and the main valve. It’ll probably be the F/A tube which means you’ll need to pull the the main valve.
