    G,,day I found this at the weekend.
    I gave it a wipe and blew the dust out of it, fuelled it, and away it went.

    Tony . the only differences are
    main control valve knob on mine is black
    my pot support grill has 8 for/aft rods
    and my second burner control is flat steel and telescopes into the case for protection

    i reckon it will be a good strong burner ,
    clean the generator most likely dirty.
    fit a new pump cup , so i can get some real pressure in it .
    clean the burners etc .

    it will NOT get repainted

    Yup, those old Coleman 2 and 3 burner suitase stoves are nearly as impregnable as anvils. They'll take an amazing amount of abuse and come up with blue flames on the burners.

    Excellent find. I've even salvaged two from the garbage dump and one 502 there as well.

    Nice one Kerry. Spitting image of the Canadian Coleman 6J in THIS POST and it could have been a Bushman at that.

    G,,day John .
    it was made in Australia by arrangement with Coleman Canada .

    so i reckon any differences would be very slight

    bloody beauty Kerry, no not the same as a 6J as the 6 does not have the cast manifold, very similar to a 4H, even the color is close
