Re: Coleman 200 Generator ID

Yep, that is definitely a Canadian lantern and it does not have the kero preheater cup at the generator nut so this lantern uses Coleman fuel or drip gas or white gas. You cannot get the T 66 generator anymore, I think they changed the part number for the newer versions of the 200 to include the 200...

Re: model 400, 07/80 leak resolved?

The brown 400 stoves came with a brass pickup tube and were prone to failure. I suspect the pickup tube expanded where the Schrader contacted the sealing surface or the gasket was prone to failure. Replacing the Schrader failed possibly due to the different diameters of newer Schrader valves. This v...
