    the closest part looks copper, which suggests water,.. water heater?

    if not,..
    is fuel put into it to create heat, or does the "warmth" enter through the fleshlight? :cool:
    is it mostly self complete or are there lots of other pieces?

    It is not copper, but is shaped like that for a specific reason. No water.

    Fuel is put into it, but not to create heat. That is just a byproduct.

    It is mostly complete.

    I am camping right now so don't have access to it to take another pic. I'll snap one Tuesday when I get back.

    Do they do that? Would seem like anybody with a diesel tractor would buy diesel fuel. Diesel fuel for farm use is different and cheaper than the diesel fuel sold at the gas station.

    Kyle said it's an antique,.. I found this,.. "Way back in the 1950's, farm tractors were started using a small gas engine for warm up and then switched over to distillate fuel (kerosene) for running. The distillate was cheaper than kerosene as it was tax free to the farmer".

    :cool: I'm thinking the distillate is a type of diesel
