Yesterday i acquired a model 426B stove which i have been led to believe dates from the 50s(unconfirmed). i want to restore the stove like i did my 413d.
here is where im stuck. i need to find some parts but i havnt had any luck finding them so here goes. the parts i need for sure are the left side aux burner valve. (currently it has a bolt threded in where the valve stem should thread in)
i also need a carrying handle thou that i imagine is easy enough to find on the old colman parts webstore. ill have to do something with the grilles not sure what yet im not sure ill be able to rescue the left side grille im going to try heating them red hot with a map gas torch and bending them back to shape unless anyone else has a better idea maby. i have boxed the parts i need in the picture below. any one that has one laying around or knows where i can find one i would greatly appreciate it.
Missing parts and warped grille aside this is in better shape than my 413 was when i got it. least this one doesnt have any bends in the chassy. i will have to run evaporust through the fuel tank it seems but that kind of stuff isnt a big deal.
