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!
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.
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.
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.
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 !
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.
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!
