413D Fuel Tank refurbish question

I posted about the leak before. I've had it apart and back together a couple of times and it still leaks minutely. I s'pose I could just release pressure after shutting down but changes in atmospheric pressure and temp. still might force fuel out. I just thought I'd put in new parts. My real questio...

413D Fuel Tank refurbish question

This is the 413D I've previously posted about not shutting off. I've given up on fixing that so have ordered a new valve and generator unit from Mike. <br /><br />As you can see the fuel tank has some rust spots that are starting to pit and I need to clean it up and stop the rust. How best to do tha...

413D leaks after shutting off

I have what I think is a extraordinarily well used 413D. It looks hard used and put away wet (and nasty.) Despite how it looks it works well enough. However it does not totally shut down when turned off. I s'pose it always leaks a little thru the generator but not usually noticed until one shuts dow...

Have you notified Rustoleum of your problem? Let 'em know you're not happy. Seems like enough other folks have the same problem that they should be considering changing the product. Just a thought, Regards,

Since this thread has digressed somewhat from the original topic, I'd like to ask the experts just how "level" the propane fridge actually needs to be.

They are indeed under serated sickle sections. Replacement cutters for a sickle bar or similar hay cutting machine. They do also make a dandy small weeding hoe. I have one so arranged.

Why not a 5 GALLON propane tank? Would match the capacity of the poultry lantern and there should still be some of the outdated ones around. I know I have a couple.

choosing a 2 burner stove for restore and use

The first stove I ever bought (about 1966) was a 3 burner. Seems as I never had enough room to actually use 3 burners at a time. SO along comes a 500A single borrowed from my Dad, now inherited. Best in my humble opinion is any 2 burner you choose AND a single. My 2 pennies worth. Regards, Woody
