Re: When we’re these made, and by (or for) who?

My guess is late 1940's through 1960 or so. I have seen those words, "Nitrol Treated" on other mantles of that era.

Re: Fuel for 639c?

Yeah, I use Klean-Heat for the round wickies, and it is almost totally odorless indoors, if I do my part and use a new wick or one that hasn't been previously contaminated with the stinky stuff. It is damnably expensive for what it is, but for emergency use should last years. I'd think it would wor...

Re: Mantle interchange

Yes, the 24A is an elongated design while the 111 is bulbous, more like a ball.

I use the 111's when I want to get heat further down the generator for more even heat distribution.

Re: 237 Frank keeps blowing holes in mantles

More crud in the burner assembly I'm afraid. My best guess.

When I've had that happen it was tiny specs of crusty kero coked up there. If that is a possibility with yours, you might want to pull the assy and boil it, then scrub the inner parts again.

Most of Coleman's current gens have all metal parts, "springs" or coils sometimes one sometimes two and a pricker rod of course, from what I've seen.

Yes, the 290 and 295 gens have the same length and same dia. of the body, top, and bottom.
