uses a "metering valve" back in the day they were called carburetors, same valve was used in your dad's hunting cabin heater most likely just sayin
It's a Dickenson Antarctic, but you described it perfectly. Matter of fact, our first home was a one room apartment in Germany and we had a similar diesel stove to heat it. Oma and Opa used to sell us five liters of diesel at a time that went in a little fuel tank and was gravity fed into the burning pot. The heater in the boat runs off our main tanks with a low pressure pump. It ticks at one second intervals. It's the boat's heartbeat in the winter time and we find it pretty soothing along with the flickering light of the fire at night.
