Out of curiosity, I read through this whole thread this morning and remembered something my Dad gave me this summer while we were thinning out his storage shed:

Looks like a July 1965 200A that he used as a flounder-gigging light on Galveston Bay when we lived in Lake Jackson. Considering it's long exposure to salt water, it looks to be in good shape.

Thanks, guys. Like I need another hobby - I need to get into it and see what it needs.

BTW, it may seem random, but I am at home with a sinus infection and wanted to try this oven again.

I did notice that the internal temp is 75 degrees more than the external dial; which explains the burned bottom on the first attempt.

Timm, let me know when your coming in from the boondocks. I've got that tool in the truck for ya.

Also, my cousin is going to gather up all his old Coleman stuff and give it all to me. I don't know what he has, but it should at least be from the 1960's.

It actually looks better in person. My phone camera ain't worth a crap. It has been sitting under a tree for a while, so the outside needs a good cleaning to start out with. It will be fun to tinker on.

Got some barn finds coming in from Grandmas house! This first one is a 72 Coleman gold bond 413G. I found some info that these must be rare and only purchased using gold bond stamps from early 70s. Any one have info or what value may be on this thing? I'll post lanterns once I get to them. I can see them but haven't dug far enough to get them yet.

Picked this up for $10 today at the flea market. All I wanted was the plastic case so the lantern was a bonus even though it's in rough shape.

That is a huge score!!! Clean it up and hide it. That is a collectors item right there.

I have a question, I have a 220F that is leaking fuel from the fuel stem.
I already know I need to replace the packing. My question is how does the stem come out? Does it just screw out counter clock wise? I donít want to break it, it only screws out so far then it stops.


Thanks

Yes the stem does unscrew and it's held in place with loc-tite. Spray liquid wrench around it and let it sit. After sitting place the fuel stem in a vice and gently twist. Be very careful not to bent the fount. It will unscrew. Just take your time.

Got it out ....... thanks for the help. I thought it just unscrewed but wasn't sure and didn't want to screw it up while trying to fix it.

Just ordered my packing and will get it repaired when my parts arrive.

I bought the lantern in a Pawn shop years ago and never used it because of the leak. After I get this one going I will have 4 220 in various models working. This one is a 220K from 1980.

I have a brand new never been lit 290 from 1985 that belonged to my dad. I am never going to light this one, it just sit on the shelf. When I get around to it I will take a picture and post it.

Glad it worked out for you. Take a picture of your collection. I have 286a never fires and 3 burner stove never fires. Both have all the original paperwork and box.

Picked up a Coleman 413g gold bond stove this weekend. Can't post a pic from my phone but if anyone is interested in it I am willing to part with it. Don't have a cash price but as far as trades I like single mantles or nickel lanterns. PM if interested.

If you want the other red one let me know. All I wanted was the black band. I have another red one I am restoring. I don't need this one.
