Rehabbing a mid 1990's Coleman Peak 1 Featherweight Model 400B.  Changed the plunger cup and gaskets.  The tank will hold pressure and fire.  No apparent leaks.  The flame is blue, but it seems to be about 3-4 inches too high.  I can' seem to get it down to a nice, tight blue flame that doesn't crawl up the side of a pot of boiling water, after pumping the tank once the flame has been lit.  Any suggestions as to what the issue may be?

Not familiar with these, check for cracks, poor fitment of parts, maybe you disturbed something when working on it.  I don't think these use a genny tip, all one piece unmaintainable. ?

I'm pretty new to stove maintenance.  What is a jenny tip?  The generator has a wire that runs through it with a removable threaded jet of some sort on the end where fuel releases into the burner area.  I completely disassembled the stove, it could be that something didn't get put back exactly right, although I'm not entirely sure where to begin looking, nor what specifically to be looking for.  I'm assuming that were cracks an issue there would be fuel leakage of some sort accompanying the tall flame?  I tend to think tall flame would be a lack of pressure somewhere, the tank can be presurized to the point that it is no longer easy to pump the plunger.  Again, I'm completely new to stove diagnosis and likely way off in my assumptions.  

Used the following video as a guide to disassembly.  It was spot on with this stove.

Genny tip = generator tip.

Gotcha - yes I believe the generator tip is removable.
