Motor Sich PT3

Post by steamjam » Thu Nov 15, 2012 2:41 am

If my Optimus 8R is like the Volvo 145 stationwagen of stoves, and my Coleman 533 the Ford F100 of stoves.....

Then this Motor Sich PT-3 is like a Panzer Mk5 tank.

When I get to work I'm a gonna try and fire it up.. Since the instructions sheet is in Russian, and I can't read Russian.. I guess I'll be making it up as I go...

A little research came up with this. Read the comments for the video

Does the handle pull off to allow the lid to be a cooking pan?

That's a wash basin/backsplash. Raise it so radiant heat will warm it up while you cook and then lower it to add water to it. Heats water up while you eat. :D

I hope those handles are removable for storage.

I read it takes one minute or more to preheat. It doesn't look like the knobs outside the case are removable to store inside or is the lid. Maybe steamjam can share some insight on the workings of this stove ;)

Runnin on Coleman fuel. Not quite warmed up yet.

What I've learnt:
1. The tank is lined with cosmoline from the factory to prevent rust in storage. Pour some kerosene in the tank and swoosh it around for a minute, empty, then fill with appropriate fuel to light. Otherwise you'll fill your office with toxic fumes that smell *AWFUL*, rendering your office uninhabitable for about 15 minutes.

2. It takes a long while to warm up. I was able to light the primer cup, go make a small pot off coffee, pour some for myself, and come back before it preheated. The things gonna need some tinker'in to make work right. Such as scraping the paint off the generator tube, etc...

Like most of those stoves..I'd fill only about 3/4 or less..and try it.
