Title says it all. Just wondering if you even get one filled. Or is there a diy method.

Here we can, just has to have the modern valve and in visibly good condition. Some places may even do the old valve, they are pretty loose with propane tanks. I think it's pretty much down to local regs.

You have to find a propane company to install a new opd valve and certify and then fill. Cost about $40-50 bucks and certification runs a period of 10 years. Getting a fill station to do it, is the hardest part, that I found out..campinut..

I had an OPD valve installed, the tank recerted and filled for $35 at my local Ed Staub propane shop. Good for eight years, now. I can have it filled anywhere, regardless how finicky they are.
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.

You can make a "male to male" adapter hose and use a 20lb tank to fill it without modification. I've never had too much trouble finding the original regulators, so I've kept mine as issued. If you can find the 5410-700 two-tone propane stove, you may be able to find the regulator, they came together.

Just a thought: I don't like the construction of the stock Coleman valve on these. It relies on a pin-type valve, activated by a post on the regulator, to shut off when the reg is removed. I don't feel that this is a safe and sure cut-off for fuel. This was one of my concerns when I replaced the valve.

Hey Joe, do you have the sizes of that adapter. I need to get one because they keep stealing them from the local city yard where I fill up and they refuse to buy new ones. It is by far the cheapest place around to fill tanks.

$80 is not too bad for that set-up, but less is always better! I paid $60 for my ball tank (full), and from $25 to $50 for the stove with and without regulator. If they could find the 5122 lantern that matches, even better!

Are you saying that the 5122 was part of that package.

And is the 5122 the one that takes the tank in the fount, or do tou hook a hose to it?

I would jump all over that at that price. I already own the tank, I need the regulator and stove 🙂

The 5122 does take a tank in the fount. It’s the same  color combo as the stove.

Can you get even get the tanks. Or refill them.

The 5122 isn't part of the package unless the seller makes it a part! That lantern either takes an LP canister or a propane converter (sort of shown below, but hard to find).

Good news is the friend that sent me the link to it in the first place bought it for me,,,,lol. He didn't want to see me miss it because I was short on cash after getting all the Gold Bond stuff over the last few days.

He said but now I gotta make sure and do some stuff for him and his wife around the farm or give him the $80. My choice.  Well I was going to do the stuff on the farm anyway since he's letting me store a broke down parts truck there until I can take the bed off of it and scrap the rest.

Here's the funny part. The seller told me that I must have a pretty good friend because he just bought the stuff for me because I was going to do some work for them. But I can that he told. So I knew he bought it and didn't tell me.

So he shows up last night out of the blue, just to visit. I don't say a word about it and neither does he. Then it's "Well I gotta go". And btw. What happened with the Coleman tank deal. I said ah the jerk sold it out from under me. And it's a good thing I dodged that bullet. I heard them tanks BLOW UP!!

At that point I couldn't keep a straight face and neither could he. We both busted up laughing. And he said he knew I knew,,,lol.

So there's the good news. And 15 minutes of your life you won't get back,,,lol.

Do you happen to know the part number for that hose. Or a pic maybe. I tried searching but just don't know the correct term,,,lol

Your friend is an enabler.  It may be easier to have the valve changed than to find the lantern and/or adapter that fits the old hose.  None of the standard profane lanterns or stoves connect to the "bomb-tank" oem hose.  While nostalgia dictates its a great addition to a vintage kitchen setup, be advised the larger newer tanks hold more propane, if you use a propane tree to run a stove-lantern combo.  That said, they do look so cool!

The plan for my bomb is to have the valve updated and add a 0-20 psi regulator to the hose that connects to my 5410 stove.  The regulator with the bomb is for 15 pis.  Campinut is probably the go-to guy on this forum regarding lp fittings and such.

5410A5551 is the part number for the hose, at least in the 1971 parts catalog. Sometimes they change slightly in later catalogs.
