Old Coleman Parts Closed

I have a 1950 228D that has been sitting in my garage for well over 2 years. I finally get around to fiddling with it, get it all cleaned up but need a couple of parts, and Old Coleman Parts decides to close for a couple of weeks. ? What timing. Glad he's taking some time off. While I could get ever...

425 no workie

Just to close this out, it was definitely the orifice size on the generator. It was way too big. I was just about to order a generator from Old Coleman Parts for $10 + shipping but then someone posted two 425s on Craigslist for $20 total...$17 bucks for a generator or $20 bucks for two new stoves. I...

Okay, thanks guys. Too bad a new generator costs as much as the stove. This may be sitting on the shelf awhile. I'll update once I get the part in.

I checked the check valve by doing the finger test on the hole to see if the stem rose on its own...it didn't so check valve should be sealing.<br />I am definitely tightening the air stem in the check valve<br />I pressurized the tank (100 strokes) and did the dunk test. No bubbles.<br />While pres...

With 30-40 pumps I don't think I could get it to stay pressurized for 1-2 minutes with the lever up and the valve barely open. When I get home I'll put 30 pumps in it, put the lever up, light it and time how long it takes for the pressure to dissipate. May even take a video and post on YouTube for a...

I'm trying to get my 425 red legs to work and all I get are yellow flames and I lose pressure quickly. Going down the troubleshooting tree, this is what I've done so far:<br />1. New fuel in tank (tank wasn't that rusted on the inside)<br />2. Ran frayed wire through manifold to remove any cobwebs o...

288-700 CL2 questions

5 bucks? Score! I just got a CL2 from Craigslist and love it. I did not get nearly as great of a deal as you did <img border="0" src="//cdn.websitetoolbox.com/images/boards/smilies/frown.gif" align="absmiddle" alt="[frown]" /> That's okay though. Put in a new fuel/air tube, some mantles and camp fue...

Project 288 Rebuild (Also covers 282, 285, 286, 290 & 295)

Man, I wish I read this before tearing into my CL2 last night. Instead of removing the valve knob to remove the collar, I decided to unscrew the packing nut on the valve assembly. Why? Because I like to make things difficult. I put it back together and it seems to work fine. Great how-to. Thanks!

426B Getting it clean and working

Hey guys, I ended up getting that 426B 3-burner and the 425 2-burner. Before I go and screw something up, How should I attack the rehab? It's going to be a user, but I'd like to get it looking nice too. Basic degreaser like Simple Green to clean it up? Does it really matter? So far, I'm really happy...

Coleman stove thoughts?

I just picked up a Coleman CL2 (288) lantern on Craigslist and have become an instant addict to all things Coleman. I've been wanting a gas stove to go along with it and these popped up on Craigslist. Being new to the hobby, what do you guys think...<br /><a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http...
