A year or two ago I was showing off my new Coleman camper set up: almost new looking stoves of 413G and 425E vintage. Several people commented to me that they could see a 426 in my future. I doubted it at the time, but here we are a year or two later. I latched onto a somewhat rough 426D, arriving about 3 pm yesterday. Here it is today, only about 15 hours later. I did a thorough cleaning and it seemed the paint was not so bad. I opted to do a paint touchup instead of a full blown job. I painted the outer lid, the inner bottom, the silver burner tray, and the tank. It got a new fuel cap gasket and oil on the pump leather. Hot water and then alcohol in the tank; some rust flakes came out. It fired right up this morning, but would not shut off. Out came the valve stem and I trued up the stem cone on the lathe, using a sharpening stone. Now it is behaving as designed. This one is going onto the camper to replace the 425E.
