    Nice Stove!!! :clap: :clap: :mrgreen:

    Its good to see most of the paint on the font.

    Is there a spare generator in the storage tube?

    Cheers,
    Jeff

    :D Thanks! I just checked the tube, and yes ( I was guessing it was ) it's there! Looks like the spare was already installed and the original is in the tube, judging from the burn on one end.

    Great news.

    The solution Coleman used for almost any problem was to change the generator.
    The nice thing is most times the generator can be taken apart and cleaned and its good as new.

    Nice one! It does not look as if it's been used very much, so there's much life left in it :p . I like these stoves, they always seem to work whatever abuse they've had to endure. One to love & cherish :clap: :lol: .

    Regards,

    Wim

    All I can find is the "U.S." "1942" and "Coleman", each on it's own "line". The stamp is faint and is barely legible through the paint.

    Hello Randy,

    You have the canister for your stove? The half one that clips onto the one post of the stove?

    HI Randy,

    Looking at your photos I see the "tab" on one of the pot supports indicating a half- canister stove container . These are kinda' rare and often sell real high .I sure wish I had one - very desirable M1941 - congrats :clap: :clap: Yours is in great shape too :)

    Hi Tom,
    Yes, I have the canister, and thought I only had half of one. :lol: I just wasn't using it as the cook pot. Thanks for letting me know about it!
