Hi all, 
I have my Dad’s very old 444b suitcase stove and would like to put some TLC into it in order to use it as my primary car camping stove. It is grimy and not super pretty. Also the plunger on the tank is very noisy when I pressurize it.  Can someone point me in the direction of a tutorial video to deep clean an ancient stove? And also what kind of maintenance it needs?  Last question, are the fuel tanks sold today still compatible with these older stove models? 

Suggestions? Thoughts?

Welcome to the forum! Let's hope you can revive that old stove!

Here's a recent thread about this stove: https://www.colemancollectorsforum.com/post/stove-model-444-5380841
