I know i read something a while back about the approx date when Coleman changed over from a ball nut with a vertical spline to a knurled nut.  But I cant find it.

So can someone remind me of when they switched over?  I've got a 55, a 58 with knurled nuts and 53 62  with vertical spline nuts.

Thanks
Kevin

Kevin, the Book doesn’t specify for the E’s but in the 200A section it says 62 and earlier is splined. 63 and later are knurled.

My 6/60 and 12/61 228Es are splined, and my 10/62 220E is knurled, couldn’t say whether that is original or not though.

Hope this helps.

Pretty sure 63... At least from my bunch of junkers ðŸ˜. 63 seemed to be a year for lots of changes.

Thanks!   It's sounds likely that the 55 and 58 have replacement knurled ball nuts.
