Hey! Im the new guy around here. Glad to be part of a place that sympathizes with the coleman "bug". Got a question, just candy caned my pricker rod for a 220F while rehabbing the genny. Took a look at my 285 and got to thinking, has anyone put a dual fuel generator on a white gas model? I run 87 octane in my stoves and figures it was worth an ask if anyone had done such. Thanks! Glad to be here!
They won't fit.  The dimensions are different.

Welcome Greg.

No, I haven't. The valve seat where the gen sits is specific to it's own generator. There are a couple exceptions with Colemans, but not many.  It's my opinion that the newer dual fuel gen's would be too large at the base and perhaps too short or maybe too tall.

In the end, your 220F can and will burn RUG. Because of it's small diameter compared to the newer unleaded/dual fuel gen's it will plug up faster. Your mileage may vary - with burning RUG.

i have done that on my 220f and also on my 200a and a 242c. you have to be very careful and only use your hands and fingernails and you can straighten and use them. when you reassemble leave the tip off till you get the rod in place then carefully screw the tip back on.
Honestly I never did that and I am afraid they won't fit. I think it is kinda dangerous operation 😉 possibly appropriate for old dual generators, but not for new models better described here .
