Filled this hole in my collection finally, thanks to @OregonMichael. The 520 has been elusive to say the least. Kind of a yucky day outside so your getting some grungy shop pics ðŸ˜

Couple questions for the stovies, this one does not have a preheat cup, I have read where the first ones did not and were added later. Any way to know for sure if this one did originally or not? And second question what funnel can I find to fill this thing? A regular Coleman funnel is too big to fit against the burner frame and I believe my other military funnels are for the larger filler... Maybe the 530 funnel? I forgot to try it. Thanks for looking and have a nice day

I have a 243A that has a similar, and very small filler hole, what I use is an old turkey paster with no suction bulb on it. It fits snugly in the fount, then I just put another funnel in the end and it goes slow but beats spilling fuel everywhere. I can take a picture later today if you would like.

Thanks Benjamin for the suggestion. That would probably work good on this stove. On all my other small filler holed lanterns and stoves the regular Coleman funnel works great, but this one is pretty tight to the cage so it does not go in as far as intended... Which makes a fuel mess everywhere. I've got lots of GPA funnels laying around I need to try some different brands. 
Benjamin, do you have one of these funnels for your 243? I have several, if you need one.

Get a copper funnel, has the smaller diameter bottom tube.

I've got one I can try. I thought they were the same as the aluminum funnels besides the extra step at the bottom. I'll try it and see thanks.

Glad to see that arrived safe and sound and that's burning so well!  Both the Coleman and AGM 520 stoves were issued with a detached funnel in 1941.  But, since they didn't have a chain, most of them got lost, usually left in the field.  Any of the early funnels that can be used on a 242 or 243 will work on this one, though.

Awesome, the early funnel Duane mentioned should fit under the burner then. I have one laying on the bench... Just always grab the aluminum one. Thanks again Michael.

If the body is hitting,  the copper still won't work, The tip is a bit smaller.

Okay what is it they say?... Curiosity killed the what?... Cat?.. I'm not a fan anyhow. I had to run to the shop and check.
Here's what I did this morning:
IMG_20200712_124331_copy_1200x1600.jpg 
The end of the funnel was so close to the top the venting was pushing fuel out making a mess.

Here's what was suggested... Why didn't I think of this?... What a dummy..

IMG_20200712_124353_copy_1024x1365.jpg 
Still touching at the top but the spout is smaller and went in far enough that fuel spilling should not be a problem... 

Problem solved. Now any insight on when the preheat cups started? I meant to read the directions on the side... They would probably mention filling a preheat cup if it originally had one..
