I know, but the Coleman dome-style just don't work unless you like dried bread. Just saying--pyramid toasters toast. So does just throwing the bread directly onto the grate, or frying it in butter in a skillet--maybe my favorite.
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.

@Gasman64 well yeah I like those, but yesterday when I looked up Coleman stove it showed the first one and a bunch of ads. I didn’t want the first one because I wanted liquid fuel and I already have that exact pot and pan set from the looks of things.

Levi, the old beat ones still run great. Here is my 426A and it was free. It had no tank and I got a 426B tank for it. They also run really well with a propane conversion. Another pic with my old toaster and Optimus 99, and my nice 426A.
Rusty grates... some do electrolysis (have not tried that), sand blaster, 50/50 hot vinegar and water, or get after it with steel wool and WD-40. Take them off and straiten the bent parts with a vice, hammer, or whatever and then swap sides.

     I think 2 burners would be optimal but I have some behemoth 60s cookware.


A 413 fits bigger pots better than a 425.  a 426 three burner even better, even if you only use the two end burners

All three models are workhorses.

If you were close I'd give you the last 426C I picked up for $3 at yard sale - It sat in my patio for 6 months; I dusted it off, pumped it up, and fired it up with the fuel inside the tank...    Just taking up space here, but for 3 bucks I wasn't leaving it..

     I bought the above stove, a 425. I’ve been messing around all day with lanterns and decided to give a crack at the stove. The generator seems to be spitting out more air than fuel and it loses pressure in about 45 seconds. Also can anybody date this.

Make sure the cap gasket is not leaking.  If its good,  soap test at the tank/valve junction and at he packing nuts.  of course make sure there are no holes in the tank

What model letter?  or is it without a letter? (if so early)

With the start lever up, its supposed to spit air, and fuel.  When down, it will be a solid stream

That one should serve you well as a first stove. If you've got a lantern up and running you shouldn't have trouble with a 425. I don't know how deep you like to get into them but I would suggest just getting it running and use it. a stove would be a bear to restore and repaint and then you will just beat it up again from use. I pulled a 425a or b out of a junk yard for $1, new cap seal, lit the gas in it and burns beautifully.

I agree with everyone else, if you have bigger pots look for a 413 or 426, not only is there more room on them but they don't get the scorch marks on the paint like a 425 with a pan over the gen on high. Also the suitcase stoves grow really fast, you'll start seeing them everywhere, and they all seem like a great deal until you have 30 of them.

Also its great to see someone so young on here! My son is nearly 15 and is only a little interested so far, but he's home today cleaning up a 426b and two mango/blue sears stoves for me. One of which he asked if he could have. There is hope yet.

Alright, 20 bucks seemed like a good deal to me. The down lever thing helps a lot. I really like to dive deep into lanterns and ultrasonic clean every piece. However with the stove, I just did that to the valve assembly. I’ll still look for another bigger stove but yours truly hasn’t got many ways to make money and the old man is sick of paying for parts. Finally, I surprise myself with how much I enjoy working on this stuff. Oh, and what is the screw thing on the left of the stove, and how do I use the wind deflector things?

If you have any mechanical aptitude at all, these are great things to work on.  Not too complicated, and very satisfying to get them running right.

But it’s very unsatisfying when you have a small workspace and are unorganized like me and lose small screw or springs.

BTW,  a 425 No Letter is my go to stove for tent trailer trips, but I downsized to a KampKook Model 3 for overnight and weekend trips without the TT.  Mine has the same tank only its nickle plated (we have not been able to figure out how or why on the plating - I suspect a PO did it... - Not factory)

That screw thing is the valve handle for the auxiliary burner.  Should be closed when starting the stove.  Once you have the main burner running well, blue ring of flame, put a match to the auxiliary burner and open the valve.  You’ll lose pressure to the main so open the tank valve a bit.  A 425NL without the external leg brackets is from around 1950-53 or close to that time period.  Great stoves!

LT. on the lost parts,  get yourself a magnetic mat for the workbench and  USE it.  Also get one of those cheap magnetic trays for loose parts.  It won't stop it completely but it helps...   

For some things that like to "explode" on disassembly, do it inside a clear plastic bag.   I learned that one rebuilding ratchets.  The springs in those like to disappear...

Congrats on the stove! You're now officially HOOKED, and may be the youngest member here!

Good to see someone your age taking interest in this old fogie game!

Now, when you get old enough to drive, head out west and I'll give you a big stove! Get yerself an old rig, so's you have to work on it while you cross the continent!

     @Gunhippie I’m taking you up on that. Same week I get my license I’m heading west. Also we should try to find out if I am the youngest member. If I end up getting into the ICCC I might be the youngest there too.

If you don't have to do a major re-build on the road, I'll be disappointed!

@Gunhippie Well, if that does happen, I should know what to do. My grandad tougher me how to do stuff on cars from changing a tire to rebuilding a v8 engine. I just need to get a cheap old car like the 46’ Plymouth special deluxe, because the only wiring is spark plugs and lights. I’ve started a savings for that car already.
