Ended up digging through the camp stuff at my Moms place only to discover some of the old Coleman stuff my Dad would use when we went camping in the Sierras when I was a kid.

228 is 5/71 & the stove is an 8/81. 


Thanks to this forum, I was able to do a little refresh to the 413H in order to get it in good running shape. Cleaned out the burners and took apart the generator & valve. Got a tool to pull the check valve to free it up easily. 


The lantern is in great shape and the generator just needed to be tightened up a little bit.

Both of them worked well on a recent trip to the Sierras with my wife. Helped me reconnect with my father now that he is no longer with us.

I can appreciate these simple yet functional items and good to find a community of like minded individuals.

Nice work on getting your Dad’s gear up and running again!  Those will create even more memories in the years to come.  Food looks delicious and welcome from Colorado!

Look after them and your children may well have the same experience in future 🙂

That is really cool - and I can assure you - Family Lanterns (and stoves) are the best!

Must be nice to bring some life back to a stove you used when you were a kid. Both pieces look awesome. Great job.

Great job you did on getting your Dad's Coleman's up and running again. Those will always bring back good memories when you lite them up. And thanks to CCF I was able to restore my Dad's 228E (2/56) and 426D (2/80) that he used when we camped in the Sierra's also and like you mention, it sure helps to reconnect now that he has passed on. We camped north of Bass Lake mostly and spent some time over east of Kaiser Pass on several occasions.

Nice job getting them back up and burning. I like how you cleaned up the stove innards but kept outside original, lots of memories there for sure. Family GPAs also got me into this hobby and onto the CCF as well.

Thanks! Keeping the outside original was important to me. Something about the look that brought back the memories.

The FA tube did need a good cleaning and generator too. Some carb cleaner and steel wool to clean the generator & a soak in vinegar for the FA tube had it burning well.

Its so peaceful out there to be in the big mountains. I camped at East Fork near Toms place and rock creek lake. I had gone there on several occasions with my Dad and Grandpa. Was nice to be able to share the experience with my Wife and talk to her about my childhood memories.

Stoves are a lot of work, but very satisfying when completed.

It was definitely a multi-day process. Making adjustments to the valve took the most time. I think there is a groove in the valve, but that’s a question I’m going to ask about in a new thread.
