    A year and a half ago I purchased a Coleman 418(B) 3 burner stove. It lacked a fuel tank/generator assembly, but the box and burner assembly was in pretty good shape. Managed to clean it up fairly quickly, but it has taken me all of this time to find the correct tank for it. At Last, I was able to find one, swap parts, and - Voila!

    Here is a flame shot of number 3 burner after everything had warmed up.

    Had to try it out, so...

    Put on the old Griswold waffle iron for re-seasoning.

    WOW! :D/ :D/ Now that is a stove! Not for the faint of heart or arm for sure. That was a backpacking stove 60 years ago, (just kidding).

    Awesome stove, favorite Coleman, & pretty dang rare too. I am surprised you found the tank for it. Good to go for another couple generations.
    Nice Griswold too. whole kit there only weighs about 65 pounds. :lol:
    Thanks for sharing.

    Great job. Nice example of an early pre-war Coleman 3 burner. You don't see many of these. Mike...

    Really nice job, well done! I saw a Coleman 3 burner this weekend but it was a late 90's model and was missing the handle. I passed. I need to find one like yours!

    That looks fabulous! Love the 3-burners. You've got a really nice setup.

    I know this is an old post but I had to chime in and say I had this model and sold it....didn't realize how rare it was. It worked great too. Can't say how sick I was.....and still am a year later. Cherish this lil jewel....you won't regret it....
