My "catch" from a few weeks back, a 454 Utility stove has been the most troublesome, bad luck, dirty in the fount GPA I have ever found.   After swapping parts from a new genny to the old genny as the pricker wire was broken off and unable to completely stop a slight fuel leak only at a sweet spot when opening the valve, made it worse by fixing it.  So since I had nothing to cut the threads on the new genny/valve as its threads were ever so slightly larger then the old and the fuel line would not thread onto it, then tried to heat/oil/pull/pry/wedge out the new parts out of the old genny/valve.  Heat, prying, prying against the pieces only messed up the first four or five threads on the old genny/valve, thus then unable to tighten the packing nut after I added more graphite.  I think inner pieces were not in correct order somehow.  So finally with nothing to lose, grabbed a crowbar and proceeded to pry against the genny/valve tube that screws onto the fuel line with the packing nut below my vise as a firm area to pry against.  Took a little effort but finally the valve shaft and pricker rod popped out.  What a nightmare.  Hoping now I can salvage parts, but not necessary as a new genny I got from OCP had the correct size threads this time, so all I had to do then was swap genny tips to stop the large and high yellow flames.

I think I deleted all the pics off my other tablet, wasn't much interest and don't believe any living members here have one.

... so we are not interested at all in seeing rare stoves here, lol...  might I talk you into taking some fresh 454 pics if you don't have any?  I didn't photo your campsite cuz I thought it would be impolite...  and that is a neat device.

Some people come home from a GPA gathering with less stuff than they left home with.  Apparently I am not one of those people...

Stove isn't near as rare as mantles.

mantles ROFLMAO!   
Thank you for the photos!  That looks pretty pretty good indeed! 
I also think you have the only 454 here, and I'm willing to bet a running 425F (exactly what you'd want. lol)  that the whole of the GPA collector community will show less than a double handful of 454.  Which is why I was beating on you to show yours off...  again thank you.

Leave it to Duane to use a crowbar and come out smelling like a rose! 

Great work once again!

Wish I had a correct grate.  Hope to get the second genny threads cut soon.

A guy I know has a bunch of tools, garage is stacked with stuff, narrow path around boxes and boxes.  None of his tools would fit, said threads are 28 count.  Looks like all the NOS gennys are gone at OCP.  Just dont have a usable spare,  but no big deal as with so many stoves, none get overly used.  I can fiddle with the old one to see if I can do something with the partially stripped threads on the horizontal part.  Use the removable pricker wire assembly on the old rod, add packing.

There are a few more 454's around. I traded one to another Texas member a few years ago and there is another one with the original grate here also. I was lucky, mine lit right up and worked like a champ. It didn't have much of the Colac paint left on it, but was original otherwise.

I think Coleman made a few changes over the years, only brown paint under the collar, no colac.  Built in pump, not a external pump.
