I removed the valve handle and needle from generator assembly to clean needle valve at end As there was some build up that caused fuel to leak.  This was perhaps not a good way to do this.  Now I can’t insert valve handle into block. It seems that the valve stem (spring loaded) in the block is sitting too high to slide into the channel in the brass part of the handle. I assume now I need to remove the block from the tank to temporarily lower the valve stem to get it all put back together.  If I do this, what type of sealant/pipe dope should I use on the threads? The original material looks like lead paste or some such thing.

Welcome to the site.  You have a Canadian only stove, so you may need to wait for one of the Canadian guys to come on and give you some direction.  I'll only say that some have called this Easi-Lite valve design the worst that Coleman Canada ever made!  Did you replace the o-ring?  That may be causing some of your leakage (see your other post too.)

Not sure if you have the parts diagram, but I found this...

Good luck with your repair.
