    Converted this 426B to two tanks a couple years ago, using two stoves, tanking their tanks and bunsens to make two main burners in one case. Unable to stow both tanks in the case though. Measure eight times, cut once. Only error was not accounting or knowing that each generator varies in distance from the valve, but fixable by moving the bunsen some and remembering the tanks had a specific side they should be at.

    You'll need three bunsens to do that.

    Makes it nice that you actually have two burners, as opposed to a burner, and warming burner.

    That is the dog's balls. Never seen anyone hotrod an old Coleman before.
    The 426 was a 3-burner, but you've made it a dual-tanked, dual-independent burner stove, now right?
    Wow.
    I guess that solves the problem of getting the satellite burner up to the same heat as the main burner, as you'd need under a griddle.

    Yes, tank for each main burner. If the tanks were on the ends instead of the front, the stove would take up quite a bit of space and be hard to regulate the burners, plus too much fabricating to remount parts. No riveting or changes, just cut some holes and slots for the genny and tabs on the tank.

    Nice. Don't know why the last line got crossed thru. My computer's been acting funny. Locks up the cursor. Hard to get back control.

    How hard is it to pump up the tank on the left without removing it?

    Can be done, a awkward angle, slow and easy if more pressure needed.
