What model, what is wrong would help?  K is for kerosene, if you have a International, it will not run long on kero, the 600 is better suited.  Contact Cascade Designs and ask them to send you a G jet if it isn't the 600, they will need to now which stove you have as there is a shaker jet model also for the Int'l and regular Whisperlite.

I just found my maintenance kit #22129 for Models G and GK.
I also found the booklet that came with the stove.

By this I now know that I have the GK.

Is there any cleaning fluid that you may recomend to losen up any of the parts?

I also found two Jets. One stamp with a G the other I can't make it out looks like its a C. or it could be a ). any ideas what it could be?

Thanks for the help

len, Heat and quench will clean carbon out of the fuel line hopefully, if the jet is stubborn, run the stove briefly, then try a screw driver to remove the jet while it is hot still. Sounds like you have both jets the stove will use. The second one sounds like it is the G/gas jet as there is no "C" jet, they are not always stamped clearly. If you have a pricker, the K jet will have a larger orifice. Try the second jet with Coleman fuel, should run great. Duane

I just bought a Whisperlite universal and am really excited about it! I went ahead and ordered the spare parts kit at the same time. It has three jets and two different ends for the hose so you can burn canister fuels, white gas, kerosene, or unleaded gas! Groovy :)

its an orifice,luckily MSR is american.call  MSR tell them you have K orifice.another option is find out the correct orifice size(probably in MM,might be in " conversion)and drill it.
