    Hi folks, first post. I’ll give you a little background first.
    I grew up around my Dads camp gear in the early 60s, he was a Coleman man. I remember the first time he opened the cookset and pulled out his 502 like it was yesterday, I thought the whole package was just the coolest thing. I bought my own at 16. It was misplaced along the way, life... in the 90s I went looking for another and was saddened to see it was out of production. I bought a 533.
    Moving forward to last week. I want to start camping again, so I bought at 502 on eBay. I tore it right down, ordered a cap washer, new leather cup, and new packing.
    Here’s the dilemma. While cleaning the old packing out of the compression nut, I realized that the nut was split through from the top to the threads, I don’t want to buy the whole valve just for the nut because I cleaned it up and it’s fine. Can someone point me to a source to locate just the nut?
    I went all over the local hardware stores looking for something off the shelf, but found nothing to match the fine thread...



    Thanks in advance,
    Jon B

    I did actually, he emailed that it was never sold individually, had to purchase the entire valve wheel assembly. I was hoping maybe someone had a spare parts stash where I could buy the one nut...

    Mike replied...
    “That part was never sold as a separate part so I do not have a part number for it. I think it is the same size as the 200A valve stem nuts I have in stock but am not 100% sure. I sold my last 502 valve assembly this week so have nothing to test it on to be sure.”

    Has anyone tried this?

    Just for my information, was there a problem with the packing that you had to remove it (packing)?

    I know the common rationale is if it’s not leaking don’t fix it, but the wheel was very hard to turn, and I wanted to know the stove inside and out so...

    Just remember to take the camera and lock the front door on the way out to your next adventure. Enjoy.

    Lovely to see it working again.
