    Inherited my first camp stove a few months ago and found this forum. After lots of research I decided that one stove was not enough...

    Found this old 3 burner a few blocks from my house.

    Nice. I kept seeing 426s in the Phoenix* Craigslist for very reasonable prices before the Pandemic. Not there now.
    * I'm in Tucson about 2 hour drive SE.
    One day, maybe. After I fettle the 425F, 2 413s and a 502, I'll have a place for another ''Green Monster."

    Hi there. Very nice looking 426 you have. I've got the same stove and this was my first stove rehab project. It is painted in the forest green and all of the burners and other parts have been de-rusted and painted with UHT header paint. All of this was done before I looked at the cylindrical fuel tank. It has several small pinholes. Is there anyway to repair it with high-pressure epoxy or are there any fuel tanks for sale?
    Thanks in advance for your replies.
    Steve.

    I've seen various Coleman fuel tanks for sale on EBay. Or you could try OldColemanParts.com.
    Because of the pressurizing necessary to run a Coleman stove, I'm not sure I would trust a sealant for a classic car's fuel tank.

    +1 on “replace”. I understand the desire to have the stove in its original configuration, but I don’t think it is worth it. For a collectable non user, leave it be. To use, get a tank in which you have confidence. Brad
