BT,

The water jug is name an Aristocrat. Limited edition. The personal engraving from the Mr. Coleman himself makes this a real collector.

Bringing this back up.

Sitting on the porch, and it's chilly out... So I decided to fire up my 3--70 heater, just to see If'n it still works.

Picked up a 242C this morning





Fount was under pressure but had some brown, slimy stuff mixed in with fuel

Guessing it was a water/rust sludge

Going to try and revive it

Looks like 2 6's on bottom, no double digit month year like the newer ones

I think it will work, may need a new rubber washer in the connection. One in there has some gaps in it

Original Buddy heater

Coleman users

Now is a good time to do some yearly maintenance on your stoves and lanterns.

add and little motor oil to the pump well to keep the leather or neoprene cup lubricated.
Make sure the fuel cap gasket does not have any cracks. Most of the pressure leaks will come from a bad gasket.

Take a can of compressed air and blow out the mantle pipes and burner plates on the stove. Add some fresh fuel to them and burn them for about 30 minutes. If your stove burner plates are not burning evenly take them off the burner and soak them in Coke or metal rescue. Let them sit for a few hours. Dry off and re-install. Light stove to make sure the issue has been resolved.

If anybody needs any help with a stove or lantern just let me know. I will try to help you.

Figured this would be a good place to sell these. My parents cleaned out the attic and have these. Figuring from late 70's or early 80's. Have original boxes too but the boxes aren't in the best shape. Not sure if these were ever used and if so it wasn't much.

Look on the bottom stove and lantern font for month and year.

both are pretty common so price will range from $5 - $20. If a collector is looking for a specific date it might be worth a little more. Both look to be in good condition and should sell pretty easy.

We used to do a lot of floundering with those. Put aluminum foil on one side, so it directs the light one direction, then grab a gig. A buddy also used to tie a cord on them to hold the handle half way down, so you could hold them at a angle easier, to direct the light into the water.

Those were the good old days, now some really bright LEDs on a pole sure works a lot better.
