For the curious I have added drawings, a diagram of the plumbing arrangements and 'condensed' operating instructions for the Philips:-The starting procedure requires that the burner first be warmed by lighting the atomised fuel issuing from the jet, then that is extinguished and the burner proper lit. Now the engine must be pressurised from the tank/carrying frame and, once the heater head is thoroughly warm, you can finally try to start the thing. Oh, and don't forget to recharge the starting tank before shutting down.
I think I got that right, but bear in mind I haven't actually tried it yet!
All this requires the manipulation of three valves and an air choke in the correct sequence together with observing the pressure gauge readings, plus, if you didn't have enough pressure in the tank some work with a foot pump. Add to that that there is a supplement describing "improvements made before dispatch" (but clearly after the main body of the handbook was written) covering the operation of two more burner controls which not all sets have, and you can judge for yourself whether this could really be considered a fully mature consumer product even by the standards of the early 1950's.
