Bing 130/280 burner dimensions anyone?

Bing 130/280 burner dimensions anyone?

I restoring a Bing 130/280 engine which is missing several parts including the burner.
As I am not likely to find one to fit, I intend to fabricate one as close as possible to the original.
If anyone has an intact Bing 130/280 and can provide dimensions (including the decorative firebox door) it would be appreciated.

I have seen what the burner looks like in some youtube videos but need some exact measurements.

Thanks, Northmich

I have a Bing 130/17/1? they look canily familiar to each other.  I saw a nickssteam youtube video and the burner looks identical.  I know they share common parts.  let me know.

Hello PO9R4S4CHE,

Thanks for the reply. I'd welcome any help on the burner dimensions, and I appreciate the fact that you are in the US as am I (Michigan) and try my best to avoid using metric measurements. In my mis-spent youth I was a toolmaker/machinist and all of my calipers and micrometers are in inches. But + or - 1/32" dimensions would be adequate for fabricating the burner tank.
The firebox opening on the 130/280 measures 2 3/8"wide x 1 15/16"high, if yours is similar then we're in business.
