    Any ideas what this large generator is from? It came in a large stash of Coleman parts I snaffled today.

    Obviously a stove valve, and from the knob, one of the newer models. The generator looks like 413/426 style but it will take some specific measurements of length and girth to get a certain answer. I'm not up to speed on dual fuel or Canadian stoves, but I'm guessing it goes with one of the two groups of stoves.

    The coleman style F/A tube and lever suggests coleman but the knob looks wrong. Could be Canadian, but not a schrader valve easi-light.

    It is from a late model Coleman suitcase stove, probably a dual-fuel / unleaded model like the 414.

    Late model Coleman dual fuel could be correct. I’ll measure the generator later today.

    I agree, most likely from a later model suitcase stove (414,424 two burner, or 428 three burner). The 428 not that common in Australia.
    The markings on the black knob are unusual (compared to what I typically see in Australia). It is nice to score a stash of parts - they are
    becoming hard to find in Australia...well done!!

    Just checked 3 late model, dual fuel stoves. Two have the exact same markings on the black plastic knob - one is a 414 the other a 424.
    Guess I shouldn't trust my memory!! Cheers Peter

    Haha! A NOS 414 gen I have is approx. 26cms long. A NOS 424 gen is about 22.3cms long (hard to get exact measurement as they are carded
    and have an orange protective cap on both ends. Hope this helps. Cheers Peter (jet size is the same for both gens)
