Default MSR Stove GK

Hello,

I'm hoping to get some advice about an MSR stove that I just purchased
used. I was told that it was the XGK, but on closer examination, it
turns out that it is the GK Blue (with flint starter).

I have a few questions about the stove (assuming there are those that
know about these things)

1) Is it a multi-fuel stove?
2) Will the XGK service kit work with this stove?
3) What type of pump does it take?
4) Will it give me a year of constant service (going on a trip and may
need to use it everyday for about a year)?

Any information about this old stove would be appreciated.

Or...should I be trying to get my money back off the person I bought
it from? The princely sum of $25.00

Thank you for any information.

Do you have 2 jet nozzles?
One labeled G for gasoline and another labeled K for kerosene?
It should have a fuel pre-heating loop as well.

Should.

MSR's.

Treat it well and it should.
Should be field mantainable.

Any information about this old stove would be appreciated.


Get the 18 page instruction manual?

Make certain the pump, didn't you get a pump?, fuel bottle combo thread.

Depends on era. Might be a little pricey for some older models.
Cheaper than new. If you just got a burner, then you are lacking quite
a number of pieces. To say nothing of the condition of pieces (known
failure or maintenance problems).

Looking for an H-912 (container).
