Svea 123 best ever

I went to Philmont in 1984 as a young boy with my Svea. After Philmont, I went on to other things and did no backpacking until my boys got into Scouts. My parents had my old backpack, and in it was my Svea. I literally did nothing to it, but it fired up on first start with 20+ year old white gas in it, and has run like a champ since then. I've still got the unopened all "moving parts" repair kit, but to date, have not had to do a thing to it. This is an amazing stove, and it is what I learned to cook on. The designers should have gotten a Noble Prize for something.
