    After a complete teardown and very enjoyable and educational Fettle, this is the latest Coleman Model 530 "A46", burning fuel, as William C. Coleman intended it to! Great little stove! Bullet Proof construction. Amazingly simple Engineering, but built Battleship tough! Coleman Model 530 A46 Completed with Case.jpg

    Those were built to last, stainless and brass tank, it's amazing how many of those survive to this day, and run like the day they were made, given good fuel.

    I gave one of these to my son-in-law for his paintball re-enacatmant games, make for interesting meals out in the field!

    Stainless Tank or nickel plated on a brass tank and polished correct?

    Tank is nickel on brass (though the base is steel) and upper structure is stainless steel.

    Here's a nice trick to make a good stove even better: Replace the generator nut with the one from a M1950 stove, same nut with a preheat cup and wick attached! Makes the stove real easy to fire up in very cold weather, and the preheat with alcohol works better then the belches of yellow flames while the stove warms up without a preheat, IMO.

    I think the same vaporizer nut is used on a wide range of stoves in this series.
    Here is a pic from my 2-burner 523. I have added fiberglass material to "soften" the pre-heat
    I'll see if I can find some other pics.

    Found it via https://www.oldcolemanparts.com/resources/man.php part # 520-359 used on both the 520 and 523

    The M1950 cup comes with a piece of glass fiber rope in it already, makes it much easier. Many of the parts interchange between the 520, 530, and M1950 AKA 536 or EX 50-1

    Is this nut/preheat cup part, something one can purchase somewhere, or do you have to be lucky enough to find it on another stove?

    Anlrolfe,

    Will that fit my 530 "A46" and "B46"?

    I've got a salvaged valve assembly somewhere that I can try to find. My understanding is that the valve is the same on this entire series of stoves.
