Do slants typically run Q77?
After the T88 was discontinued, the Q77 would become standard from my understanding.

Re: Q77 Preheat (stupid question of the day)

Those iron generators are handy for converting slants to a T88 style gen 😁 How is that? Use the gen tip on a different gen? I noticed that these 603-299 generators are the same tube as the Q77.

These cheapy cans were not designed to be "bled off". Once you open the valve the pressure will equalize.

I can't speak for Coleman stoves (altho I suspect they do to) but the 242 and 242A with the NRV also have the snorkel pump tube just like the 220/228B's of the same period. One can easily swap in the later check valve/air stem setup and be perfectly safe doing so.
