This stove was my dad's. I remember it going camping growing up. This was my first GPA; Dad didn't have a pressure lantern, he used a wick type. I had it for years before I started collecting. I'm sure he used this since just after WWII. It has been used in our family for at least 40 years. I have it put away because I haven't had time to restore it. I have never seen another one anywhere like it. I is basically a No. 77 with an oven.

This is with the oven closed. The stand is made of stainless steel and is stored inside the stove, opposite the tank. Dad would leave this set up at camp, and after washing the pans, would leave them inside with the lid closed while we were gone for the day.

The oven opens at the front, unlike the coleman oven that opens on the side.

This is the early model with the built-on pump and hanging tank.

The stand has a support to hold the oven top in the back.

Thats actually the late model with that pump style. post 1928 that pump setup was used. This is an awesome stove for sure. Ive never seen an 88 and i prob have 100 hours studying kampkook stoves and literature. 
 I have a 99 with this exact pump setup and color of tank. They burn and function so well that few other camp stoves can even compare.
 My model 10 and model 99 are my top favorites to use when i camp.

Absolutely made to work with cast iron pans these were the best stoves made IMO. 

To me AGM made THE best gas pressure products that exist from 1913-1940. Prentiss wabers taking a very close 2nd when it comes to stoves. Its almost a tie. 

I love them all equally but thats my thoughts when it comes to camp stoves.

I am wondering if your dad changed to that newer built in pump instead of trying to get a hand pump in there? Dave, I agree with you 100% about AGM and PW stoves. I just picked up a #7 and its going to the gathering next weekend

The model 57  I posted in the stove thread post  has the wrap around tank. At Great Lakes meet in March there was a model 57 with the hanging tank; so maybe this 88 is the mid model.

Very fine heirloom indeed.  I have a #8 that the PO didn't know how to take care of GPAs the way your dad and you do.  The #8 looks very similar to your #88 (well, except for fall the rust).

Thanks for posting Mike.  That is the oven tray I'm missing! I wonder what the difference is between an 88 and an 8?  Is your tank a built on pump?

No Otto, this one uses a separate pump.  And unfortunately the tank is a leaker; badly rusted through and has had the pickup pipe re-soldered in an incorrect position so that it will not key in to the case.


I haven't decided what I am going to do with this one.  The stove case is the worst rust I've come across so far.

Trout, sweet stove, Hope I can find an AGM with the oven, too bad about the tank but I am sure it could be repaired, and thats not very rusty, I have several that were way rustier

I see what you are saying now otto. Early or late depends on where you are looking at it from. Makes more sense now that you compare it to a 57, which was one of the first ones to have the tank in front IIRC.
 I have a model 10 that someone put a 57 tank on. Works great but i do wish i had the proper tank for it.

That thing is cool. Dave is right. These are probably the best GPA stoves ever made.  Both burners can be made to absolutely roar if you so desire. 
The early Coleman with cast manifolds are good stoves with good secondary burners, but they don't have the same output.

Found these instructions for KampKook stoves, and it includes Models 11, 77, 88, and even a 99, which I've never seen! According to the parts list, the 88 is the only one with the oven. From the cost of the burners, it looks like the 99 is a three-burner.

New to the site as a member but have viewed it many times as a visitor.  "coleman_dude" had told me there was a wealth of knowledge to be had here.
Added this Kamp Kook 88 to my collection today. I mostly collect Coleman stuff but I couldn't pass this by.
The pics in the ad didn't do it justice. In a previous post "campmaster" said this style of pump was after 1928.
How long did they make this model. Just curious to maybe what year it might be.

Finally getting some time in on the new to me Kampkook 88. 
The leather in the pump needed a little oil but other than that with some new fuel it came to life.
Seemed to loose pressure rather quickly. Sprayed the tank and fittings with soapy water and found it leaking between the pump and the tank where they screw together. Looks like a leather seal / gasket. Tried a little oil on it but didn't help. Don't want to disturb it yet, looks pretty brittle.

Has anyone ever sourced any parts for these old stoves.An internet search doesn't come back with much.
I'd try an o ring if it came to that but it would be nice to keep it original.

Thanks for the tip Otto.
Did you ever confirm a date on your stove? I notice in the pic of your stove that there is only one valve next to the pump where mine has 2.
In the instructions you posted (thank you for sharing) they speak of 2 valves. Wondering which came first. Trying to put a date on my own.
I see in a KampKook paper ad from 1932 it shows 2 valves.

One valve came first (see sbh801's AGM #3 post today)- then two valves to make it instant-lighting without infringing Coleman patents.  The second (air) valve is "on to light, off to burn". 
You "should" be able to find ads for #88.  I'd look late 30s first..
Me, I like Buna-N or Viton, but if you wanted to make a fiber or leather washer you could punch your own or better still visit your local saddlery. 
Assuming same pump as a model 77, that is a -215S O-ring.- 1/8 thick, 1 and 1/16 ID, 1 and 5/16 OD, square-cut.

Thanks for the reply Eel
I assumed that the 2 valves came after the 1, but wasn't sure. 
I did get a seal today at a local repair shop that seems to work well, but probably not made of anything special.
The next trip into the city I'll take your measurements and get a few quality seals.

"AS568-215S in Buna-N or Viton" is what you *should* need to know.
