LOL! Some guy posted a 4 part video on YouTube and I watched a couple of them. (Some of it wasn't important to me - like repainting parts of it.) It's really kind of cool how much went into the design. I never knew what that bent-rod lever on the fuel valve was for, except that you're supposed to put it up when you light the burner and then switch it down after it heats up. It changes whether the valve takes fuel from the bottom of the tank (liquid) or from the top (vapor). So you're lighting the vapor and then the burner heats up the pipe so it will volatize the liquid fuel when you turn the lever down.Texasjack,
OBVIOUSLY, you are qualified TOO as a COLEMAN STOVE MECHANIC. = CONGRADS.
