My 1st restoration, and 413 G turned out well. Just finished a new restoration, a 425 C 3 burner but keeps feeding fuel long after shutting the valve.
I compared the two tanks after making a valve adjustment did not correct it. The needle on the valve stem tip is now actually further out than on the 413 G tank when I looked for comparison. I had even adjusted the 425 tank (nut for stem) until it was binding on turning the valve wheel so, had to back it off.
What am I missing guys? I don't want to mess around with this and end up needing to get a new stem/needle assembly.
Thanks for your input.

How long is long? It's normal for the stove to keep running for up to a couple of minutes after shut down. That gen hold some fuel.

The part of the valve that seals is the end of the valve stem. The rod helps to control the flame and keeps the orifice clear--it doesn't shut the fuel off.
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.

425C is a 2 burner, maybe you mistyped, should be 426C.   If you only shut the stove down with the start lever in the run(down) position, the pricker wire has closed off the orifice in the genny tip, so will hiss for quite awhile as the fuel in the genny continues to vaporize.  However, if you flipped the start lever up, and wait 10 seconds, air from the tank will push fuel out of the genny and will then only hiss a little when the valve is turned off.  See if this helps.

The valve has double-start thread.  Back the packing nut out and unscrew the valve being careful to feel when the stem releases from the female thread.  Turn the valve stem 180 degrees and thread it back in.  I've had this happen twice, once on a stove that wouldn't shut off, and once just a couple of days ago on a lantern that wouldn't shut off.

Help me out here, starting the valve stem 180 out does what exactly?  Is this a work around for a worn valve tip?

Yep. This trick was in the instructions of some stove I had a while back, and I now do it whenever I remember to. It also gets rid of that last drip of gas that hangs out in the gen after it shuts down and then stinks the Van up while transporting. I usually let it run with the lever up for 30 seconds or so. The stove will show signs of running lean when the majority of fuel is out of the gen tube.
