Hello all. I've been a fan of the old coleman products for a while, but never tried delving into fixing up one. Heck, never even fixed/replaced a pump. I've always purchased a working one. Recently I purchased a 530 pocket stove and had to get it working. Really, the only thing that needed work was the pump, it ran fine after that, but after getting the pump to work I continued to take it apart and clean things. I just wanted to say thanks to this forum for the information available here as well as my Buddy that I sent a few photos/questions to during the disassemble and reassemble. Here's a few photos in case anyone is interested.

Welcome from SW Missouri. Looks like the 530 is working good... So what's next? You probably need a lantern or 2😁

Thanks. I actually have a couple lanterns. One is an amazing refurbish my buddy did on a '80 220k lantern. By far my favorite. The other is an old Embury airpilot wick lantern that's supper rusty, but still plenty functional. To answer your question of what is next though; I'm thinking about trying to sand down the rust on the Embury and paint it, although I'm more inclined to get some more Coleman stuff instead.

Don't sand the rust off, you will leave scratches in the metal any you won't like the way it looks later.
use chemical rust removers or electrolysis,  evaporust seems to be a favorite,  but if you have time and want to save some money use molasses ,
use the Google to see how it works

Some of us like the wickies as well. I posted about my $2 Embury air pilot on here about a month ago. IMG_20200520_083743_copy_600x800.jpg

The Embury is nice because of how simple it is. Yours is in a lot better shape than mine. It was a "I heard you liked lanterns, want this?" gift. It offers a nice dim light for when the Coleman is too bright. lol

Looks like a good one to me. I don't have a bunch of wickies, but I believe the Embury is the cleanest burning of the bunch.

@Kgam1020 Well, I posted a pic of my Embury. The 220K is pretty unique, so I'll let my bud decide if he wants to comment and share pictures of it. It is his work, so I'd rather the attention go to him on that piece.

I think murffs old post was more helpful than our text messages, well done regardless! You and I have cooked a number of times on my 520 along the Missouri River over the years, and you've wanted one for a long time now, glad you got something real close enjoy it.

Nice 530.  One of my favs just due to the roar it makes.  Nicely done.

[welcome]from Pennsylvania! Nice work you did on the 530-those are nice little stoves.   Is it possible to provide a first name for us to use when addressing you?

@Gasman64 I updated my profile. I'm a bit of a private person, but it seems to have let me remove my last name, so I removed the "private" mark. To save you a click, James.

Thanks, James! I understand privacy and all, as I haven't ever listed my last name on here since I've been here, nearly ten years now.  However, I've been to a couple of ICCC conventions and a whole bunch of local gatherings, so a lot of people know me here anyhow...😁
But James is much easier to type than "6athtmlpk28t", LOL!
