    Holding pressure means a lot. Means the check valve is good, the fill cap seal is good, no leaks in the tank, and the valve assembly is air and fuel tight.

    That's my thinking. Eliminate the possibilities. I'm going with something I cant see is dirty or something is temporarily blocking something then clears then blocks, etc.

    Thanks for the help

    So old non propane Coleman stoves are an addictive drug??<GG>

    Must be. I've got this one on the bench now I keep getting my fix with. Lantern in the shed, if I need it.

    Yes it is. Start building shelves!! I have about 20 stoves and just as many lanterns. Although not all of them are Coleman.

    And I'm just trying to get one to run consistently.

    Looks like I wont be able to work on stoves anytime soon. There's an ark that has to be built. 10.45"of rain this month and they are calling for up to 3" more tonight and maybe 3" more Thursday.

    So, finally got air tube from pump to top of tank open. Flushed the tank about twenty times to eliminate last of trash from cleaning. Reassembled control valve and installed in tank. Put some 12 year old Coleman fuel in it for test. Works great. Wish Paslode nail gun fuel would last that long.

    Not sure how two flame pictures got included.

    Great job! I just picked up a Sears stove made by Coleman that just gives me sooty, yellow flame when one burner is used. When both burners are lit and wide open the flame is blue but small. I'm going to clean up the generator tube first and see if that improves the air-fuel mixture.
