Hello, all.
I'm working on a 424 stove. I took the valve/generator assembly off the tank, cleaned it up, and repainted the tank. On the hole the assembly screws into, there's what looks to be the remnants of a gasket (see picture). I haven't found any reference to a gasket for this spot in any instructions I've found here or elsewhere. I'm guessing I'm just missing the correct term to search for it. Is there a gasket or something that I need here?

Thanks in advance!

Welcome to the forum from north Jersey.

I've tried two different browses and am unable to see your image.  Regardless, Coleman used to use a substance I believe called gasoila to seal the valve to the fount, although most often unnecessary.  I personally use the blue thread locker.  It makes a good seal and keeps the valve in place.  I suggest you don't use any kind of teflon tape.  It'll work, but because it's so slick, you're likely to overclock the valve (turn it too far).

In new stuff is a grayish color sealant not like the early ones. I’ve just cleaned my 424 today and I didn’t applied any sealant but I used blue locktite to re-clock lanterns and stoves.

Thanks, folks! That seems like the info I was looking for. And I fixed the picture above. Looking at it again, it looks like I have may have a little rust to clean out of the threads, too. I'm glad I found this forum; I'm sure it won't be the last question I have.
