As I've mentioned before, military GPAs are at the core of my collecting. Last year I finally scored a Canadian issued 500. Now, almost a year to the day I found another. This one was in even better shape than the first. The inside of the fount looked unused, the original pump leather just needed a short soak in oil and there was enough original finish on the burner for me to determine what the factory finish was. The needle rod in the generator was rusted to the coil but the outer tube slipped right off. Backwards from what usually happens with Coleman generators. A few days soaking in penetrating oil and the parts finally separated. the rod was pitted but still useable. Based on the remaining paint on the burner, grate, windscreen and base plate I repainted those parts. Had to replace some of the burner screws, but luckily they're a common 10-24 truss head screw. I made a mistake in the post one the first one, the collar is stamped with the burn - light info, but also has a painted pair of arrows. The new one has only the stamped instructions, in English and French but no trace of painted directions. Anyway, most happy with this new addition to the herd.
