    Hi All,

    I have acquired a Coleman 530 stove. This stove didn't have it's burner bell and from what I can find out these burner bells are rather difficult to find.
    What I did was measure the 530 generator and a generator from a M-1950 model stove. What I found is the 530 generator is 0.006" longer then the 1950 generator. The radius flare on both generators are identical. Also the cleaning needle for the 530 generator is 0.006" longer, but due to some slight differences in the generator I had to use the cleaning needle from the 530 in the 1950 generator. I have 2 burner bells for the M-1950 stove so one I removed the flame plate and replaced it with one of Gary's Midicaps and wired it in place. I also used a spirit cup from the 520 model stove so I can preheat the generator and burner bell. As is already known the 530 stove can be rather exciting to light, so I figured the spirit cup would help and it worked very well. Now the stove hasn't been run in years so there was a bit of flaring for a few minutes and then the flame settled down to a very nice pretty blue flame.
    There are those who don't like seeing a stove altered in any way, but in order to fire this stove I had to alter the stove. After all it is my stove so I can do what I want with it.

    Did you find having a problem screwing the 1950 burner bell onto the 530 genny? The reason I ask is that the threads on both are different. I got a 1950 with a 530 genny and it was a bear to get the burner off and there were almost no threads left on the 530 genny. I picked up a 1950 genny and new burner bell and it went together much easier.

    Hi,

    You have to replace the 530 gen with the 1950 model gen, but you will have to use the cleaning needle from the 530 gen in the 1950 gen due to some differences in the in the 1950 gen. With this adaption you will be able to use the burner bell for the 1950 model stove on the 530 stove.
    Hope this makes sense.

    Cheers,

    Norman,

    That's a great looking flame! Love what you've done with the stove. I'm one of those guys that prefers not to alter vintage items, but when you are in a situation of "alter and make functional" or have a decorative unusable item, I think I'd have done what you did! Great job!!
