Default Re: Zenith mystery again.

Doa44Green, sounds like you are looking at capillary action on the fresh surface of the gas bowl. Try just putting in about half and inch of gas very gently, - you'll see the sides of the bowl getting damper above the surface of the gas as it as it wicks upwards because of the rough surface of the casting ( like paper sucking up water). Once the casting absorbs sufficient fuel then the wicking is not great. level the half inch for a few minutes then top up, the actual level should now pretty well be settled at 5/8 in.
