    Stopped at an antique shop in Flagstaff, AZ on my way home and found this.

    Looks like a heat diffuser came with it.
    Anyone else seen one come with them?

    I haven't done anything to it, not even cleaning.
    It is beautiful.

    Nice one!
    All came with the steel diffuser, although most are missing.
    There should also be a funnel on a chain.
    There are spare parts inside the pump tube, tho all of the seals will be rotten by now.
    The seals and gaskets on yours will be hard and should be replaced before use.

    No funnel, chain, or tool.
    There is a packing in the filler cap. Kinda like Svea 123 graphite packing only lighter color.
    I started looking at instructions, and parts lists. I may take it apart, but I have an old Optimus 5 & SVEA Sievert 5 to get going first. (Thanks to George and his supply of parts).

    Some Mother's polish will make that aluminum case look just like your stove tank.

    Just learned from a Coleman man that the B 47 did not come with a funnel and chain. Coleman ran out of the funnels and shipped these without.
    And there is no place to put spare parts in this pump tube. Were you thinking of the M-1950?

    When I can get a filler cap gasket, and check the NRV I will light it.
    I put WD-40 in the pump tube to loosen the NRV. Other posts mention the difficulty of this. I need a "Bigger Screwdriver".

    So, I walk into a place of business in my area to show my friend this 1947 stove and say "I'll bet you never seen one of these."
    I pull it out, and he says "We have one of those here."
    I say "No way, it's from 1947."
    He walks around the displays of the shop we are in and finds a Coleman 530 B46 in the display window, just for show.
    What are the odds?
    I go into that place every few weeks, and never saw it.

    I got an o-ring from Napa, the NRV works great.

    I think I will make coffee tomorrow with this and my Vintage Cory Vacuum pot (Circa 1920-1940?).
    I got a rod for the pot, in the box dated copyright 1944.
    Pictures tomorrow.

    Here are the pictures.
    Yes, SVEA Sievert 5 & Optimus 5 in background in dire need of work.

    Oh, a friend gave me a funnel and chain.

    Really nice though I stay away from glass as I sometimes am a clutz when handling stuff.

    I stopped to check in an Appalachian Trail hiker at a gas station, while i was on my way home.
    (I know, January is NOT a prime time for thru-hiker here)

    Anyway, he needed a ride back to the trail, so i gave him a ride.
    I asked him what stove he used, and he pointed.
    BECAUSE OF THIS GROUP, I knew I was looking at a Coleman 530. It turned out to be an A46. The fill cap was missing (at home he said) but he used it as a daily stove.
    I asked what he thought of it, and he wished he had a lighter stove. He asked if I wanted to trade, so I drove home and got a whisperlight. Now I have 2 Coleman 530 stoves. He said he will mail me the wrench and filler cap. If he doesn't, it is easy enough to replace them.

    A week ago I had never seen one.

    I LOVE THIS GROUP!!!

    Was he heading N or S ? I'm only a few miles from Springer Mtn. Might try to see what else he could be swapped.

    He was heading North.
    I dropped him off at Max Patch, and he was heading to Hot Springs, should be there in 3-4 days.
