    The original burner was knackered, so i have replaced it with a newer version M1 i think.

    The canister has been highly polished at sometime and looks good :)

    Nicked one of those about a year ago on the cheap, chap had a seller rating of 3 on eBay, nobody would take a chance on him.

    Hard cheese to them, I say!

    Old Coleman Parts has a lot of replacement burner assemblies available, it's a M2 preheater burner, same as the 520 you have, but with a longer fuel tube.

    A few folks here have mounted the M2 burner on a lantern fount, made for a interesting stove/heater, works well in any case.:idea:

    Now, got a 530 to go with the other three stoves? :whistle:

    I just realized i forgot to take a photo with the feet folded out, it has three feet and i think the bottom of the tank is steel not brass, will have to try a magnet.
    Cheers

    Nice. Looks like the canister is the one for a 530.

    Arch, that's not a 530 canister, the stamped 'F' in the top half tells me it's a late model military canister, tall for the 520, and set shorter for the M-1942 and M-1950 stoves.

    530's have a metal section of 'strap' on the upper and lower halves for a handle.

    True enough, and I see that now. Very shiny canister!
    In your 2nd, 3rd, and 4th photos, is that a 530 case to the left? In the 3rd photo it appears to have the "straps". I guess these photos are from your "group shot".
