Clamp the tube between two soft surfaces like wood. Rotate 1/8 turn and clamp again. Lather, rinse and repeat until it's fairly straight.

Looks like you already have the generator successfully removed. Gently straighten it, take your time.

I think you'll be surprised how well the generator will straighten out if you follow John's recommendation and take your time.

I've been amazed at the smashed Coleman pieces that I was ablevto save. It's as if they know what shape they were and just need a little coaxing to get back there.

One technique that I learned here may apply to the buckled area on your generator. I call it spoon peening. It will gently reshape metal that is too thin to use a heavier hammer on. Lots of repeated light blows with the back of an ordinary table spoon can flatten bulges without leaving a trace.

I think that generator will straighten out just fine.

Question gentlemen ,,, the air tube is brass on her. What I call the burner shoulders = the part the on the top of the air tube with the holes for the burner tubes and the nut hole in center ...... is definately copper like the tubes. Anything different I should try to get them off or should I be trying to re thread the ones that still have yet to budge. The shoulder also has not budged nor the valve as yet.

Ok the mixing chamber that makes sense, mixes gas and air. Sorry I sew alot so I see it that way when I look at the ladies. The shades are their hats. Frankenlamp? From what I have read I was expecting brass.

Corey, all those parts are brass. Some have been much hotter in their lifetimes than others, which can change the color.

Brass tubing in the burner assembly has been very hot, many times for a long time. Hence it's very soft. Like you can bend it with your fingers soft. So be gentle. It'll be stuck, most times, and more heat and PE oil is your friend--as is patience.
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.

Regular 220 or QuikLite tubes and caps would be correct for that mixing chamber.

As for the copper color, brass is an alloy of copper and zinc. Years of heat and oxygen have "burned" some of the zinc out of the alloy at the surface--same thing will happen from too long of a cleaning with acids--leaving the copper exposed. It'll buff out, if you care. I don't get all anal about cleaning parts that are just going to discolor from heat as soon as I use the appliance anymore.

Agreed. I only want it apart to re thread the tubes. No threads left for the caps to screw on to. I only want valve off to deal with the collar. She will be dirty the day I get her running. They are actually going to be in my home as lamps. I inherited alot of antique furniture. They are period to my dining furniture. aka my sewing table.

If I can get the chamber off the air tube I may just replace the chamber and burner tubes and cap. I never imagined it would be this hard to get off.

Suggestions as to how I straighten the part coming out of the fount. slightly slanted. Also what to do about the collar as yet the valve is not budging.

" The part coming out of the fount" the fuel feed tube...... if you don't have handle off can't really deal with it. Once handle is off, a vice and or brute force, depending on what is bent...

Valve is probably not as stuck as you think, takes some force...

I am greatful for your help. Maybe I am not strong enough. Do I heat the generator before I straighten it?

The generator should be thoroughly annealed. More heat won't hurt it, but it shouldn't be necessary. Just go slowly. The biggest lesson I've learned here is not to rush things. If it takes a month or two to get something apart, that's what it takes. I take a break before I break things. More heat and quench, more penetrating oil, more time. All good.

Yes, you done good, straight enough .

You shouldn't worry about "re-threading" those burner tubes, replace em. I have some you can have, I think others have offered as well. Nice things is, they are already junk, so you can be a bit brutal. After some heat and piss and time, find a stick or something that fits inside air tube, grab it with vicegrips or something, and remove it.

So that was my thought I think if i can get them out or the chamber off the air tube I will go the replacement route.
The air tube has a bit of a curve I assume I will straighten the same way? Whatever happened to her is sad. So far she needs one burner cap and 2 tubes. I expected so much worse. I was very nervous to do the generator but I feel a little more confident now that I can get her in working order.

Your air tube may be almost straight once it's clocked correctly.

Do be watchful with the vice grips and don't smash the pliers jaw into the air tube when the burner tubes rotate. I prefer just rocking them back and forth with tools until they are loose enough to remove by hand.

That tube is threaded and soldered in at top and bottom. You should be able to ease that back straight with it in place. That brass hasn't been heated, so it will take a little effort, but it will straighten out.

The fount looks great!

Thank you! I polished her yesterday. That to took some time. Still no luck on the burner tubes or mixing chamber but I heat and quench and this morning. Tried rocking it around a bit too. Some junk loosened. Patience is not my strong suit.

Patience is a great asset when working with these things. Does the "junk" roll from side to side or just seem to rattle? There is a multi-fingered clip soldered to the bottom of the fount that guides the fuel tube during assembly. These will sometimes come loose. It won't affect the fuel delivery.

The junk came out of burner tubes. The tube coming out of the fount is solid. No movement. So I am not sure how to straighten it. Heat and try to bend it back. Same as generator between the wood?

Hmm, I wouldn't heat that fuel feed tube, Is the tube itself bent or does it just not come out of font straight??

If tube bent, clamp in a vice. If no vice, I would it on it's side on a table, with font hanging off the edge, and roll it around while tapping it.

If bent coming out of fount, I would clamp tube in a vice and just muscle font back to position, it wont take muchj force.

Do you have a vice?? Just clamp the feed tube (maybe tween two pieces of wood) and just grab font and bend the thing back in shape. It shouldn't take much force.

If no vice, should be able to find SOMETHING you can wedge feed tube into.

If you have a record player or potters wheel you can spin it and see if it's perfect.

It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.
