Great to have
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This is a very complete kit. It is something you want to have just in case your stove has problems on the trail. It is one of those pieces of gear you really don't want to have to use but if you do you are glad you have it.
Peace of mind
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
When you're actually somewhere a stove is necessary or replacement would take days--- more than a day out, or in the third world, having spare everything in one spot makes life easier. Fuel in some parts of the world is crap, and you'll be glad to have an extra jet and the wrench to rebuild a stove every night. Only wish would be a self repairing system.
I have a dragonfly msr stove. there is a...
I have a dragonfly msr stove. there is a rubber o ring in the pump that has come out. will the expedition service kit help to fix it or should I buy a new pump? Thanks. RJJ
This kit will give you everything for both stove and pump, even beyond just all the o-rings and lube.
Just to see what you'll be doing, here's the link to Dragonfly/pump maintenance-watch the last 2 videos in the description section.
Replacing Parts > Replacing Stoves
This will be close to the review that I posted for the MSR replacement fuel pump, so to quote myself:
"In 1801, Eli Whitney started producing firearms with interchangeable and replaceable parts. In modern times, MSR produces stoves with interchangeable and replaceable parts, utilize this feature. Parts will go bad (eventually)."
$30 to fix your stove? An absolute STEAL in my opinion. This kit lives in my gear box for as I quote myself again "those "oh sh!t" moments" in your gear's life. MSR makes a quality product and gives you the option to fix things on your own. It's not hard either! Buy this kit and save yourself the headache of a broken stove!
*Note: Always test and inspect your gear thouroughly before ANY trip, an extra few minutes of planning is better than a miserable experience!
My XGK EX expedition service kit.
Does this kit will work for an 13 years...
Does this kit will work for an 13 years old dragonfly ?
The Dragonfly hasn't changed internally since it's inception. This repair/service kit has everything you'll need for a complete, overall replacement of essential rubber parts that eventually break down due to their exposure to liquid fuels, especially white gas.
Which of these service kits is suitable...
Which of these service kits is suitable for an older (15 years) Whisperlite International? Does the kit include replacement jets (that's the part I really need)?
You will probably need to contact Cascade Designs directly. The jet was improved in the early 90s with a shaker jet which changed the threading of the jet. You can call (206) 505-9500, or write them at Cascade Designs, Inc.; 4000 1st Avenue South; Seattle, WA 98134. They will most likely send you a new jet. None of the current Service Kits have the right jet you'll need.
Our WhisperLite stoves haven't changed much in the 15 years you mentioned above. Mine is about the same age.
There is a WhisperLite/International Expedition Service kit available which I would recommend. It contains the parts specific to our stoves including the #28(kerosene) & #35 (gas) jets. bc.com can, most likely, get it for you.
light, handy, very helpful
nothing is worse than not being able to cook dinner after a long hike. i was stuck without a working stove at garibaldi lake until a neighbor lent me his repair kit, and i had the stove working again in 10 minutes. AWESOME.
My 22 year old whisperlite , just this season developed
a leak in the extreme cold. This kit completely upgrades
your old stove , and I especially like the priming cup
sock that is new. ( old models didnt have this )
20 more years of blowtorch !
The Next Step For Stove Maintenance
This kit has more pump-related parts that your stove will need over & above the annual maintenance kit. It includes the essential rubber pump valve ball & spring that should be checked annually due to fuel exposure. The fuel line cable should also be inspected on an annual basis. Lubricate rubber parts with silicone grease. Don't have a fuel blow out like me because I didn't replace a simple o-ring.
Now we're cooking with gas
Well, you will be with this kit if your stove breaks down in the middle of Patagonia. It's got everything you need to get our stove going again if something breaks. Be a Boy Scout. Be prepared!
