Hello all! Joined like yesterday because I picked up a 522 burner and realized I’m a collector. I don’t have a lot yet, I got a gas lantern that I prize among my camping gear and I have two double burner stoves among other Colman gear.
so I went to replace the vaporizer and the needle wouldn’t come off. Tried using pliers and it snapped at the base. 

how screwed am I?
doni need to have a machinist make a new slider thing or is there somewhere that has a replacement? Or just toss the ol’ thing

Just the needle broke off or the whole rod? 

If it’s NOT broke below the jamb nut, you’d only be out $15 plus shipping, from what I’m seeing on OCP. I’m not seeing just the rod with needle, only the whole vaporizer with needle and rod for sale. If I’m remembering correctly, the rod unscrews from the eccentric block after the jamb nut is loosened. DON’T loose or throw away the jamb nut!!!!! You will need the jamb nut again. Some heat might be needed to help in loosening the rod if it isn’t broke off below the jamb nut. 


For the love of (insert deity) , don’t just toss it!!!! 

Welcome to the forum from NC!!

thank you holliswood, for the link! Yes the needle snapped off at the base of the eccentric block so I need a new one or I need to make a new one..

That's an old milspec stove. Like said above, our host oldcolemanparts.com has had those vaporizers in the past. If not, look on ePay.

I have 3 vaporizers and needles, what I need is the part the needle screws into. I can’t find it.

If it isn’t on OCP, you’ll have to put a ad in the classified section on the forum, check epay, or maybe someone will see this topic and have a 

Eccentric Block for a 522 Milspec stove. 

Don’t give up hope on it yet🙏🏻🙏🏻
