    See post #15, above. No googling necessary.

Also, what I'm trying to find out is whether or not the 21 oz Kat's bottle will fit the old Milspec system, not if it's interchangeable within the current model Kat's systems.

    The bottle is the same as a propane torch bottle or mapp bottle. Only it has ether in it.

    I have tried a propane bottle, it will not start on propane

    I read somewhere that there are two different nozzle sizes, though. Apparently there is a 7/8" neck and a 1" neck. The Kat's bottles have a 1" neck. This is all just conjecture at this point. Once I get home I'll pull my bottle off and see what I can see but for now I'm just trying to see if anybody has any direct experience.
    One thing for sure is that I'm going to bypass that dang 20 cutout switch. Running on WMO, I need ether anywhere below 50!

    You need the tall skinny bottle (18 oz.) The fat squat one (21 oz) does not work. The 24 volt systems thermo is set to 50 deg, not 20.

    Saw that video posted a few times already!

    How sure are you of that number? Is that the original system or the aftermarket? Everything else I've read says that the military ether system is switched at 20, not 50. I suppose it would be easy enough to check it with a thermocouple, DVOM and a freezer.

    In fact, that entire thread has a lot of good info regarding thread sizes, bottle sizes, etc.

    My system was on the truck when I got it from the KY National Guard I know for a fact that it worked above 20 because I used it above 20 deg.

    If you click the haldex link I posted it will download the specs and it states 50 deg. Nothing I can find on kats site states anything but 50 deg, so I don't know where people are getting the 20 deg number from... The system I had only worked with the 18 oz bottle. the 21 oz bottle was too large for the bottle bracket.

    I will trade a good used flame heater for a ether injection if anybody wants to swap.
