Where did you get a propane adapter? I have several old stoves and lanterns that worked several seasons ago, but I have been plagued with problems and can’t get them to work reliably. I would like to convert at least one stove to keep in my rig.I've got a decent collection too. I've used Coleman fuel in the soves for years but have recently switched to a propane adapter. Really glad I did. I've got a propane tree too that attaches to the tank, gives you two propane hook ups on the stem, and one at the top that I use a propane lantern with. Great setup. I also recently bit the bullet a d bought the small 5 lb tank for situations where I dont want to haul a big tank. Those little things are pricey.
Love the teardrop bell shape. Have a 1960's Coleman(all Green), and a early 60's Thermos (metallic silver/blue) lantern.Also a favorite of mine. A fully functioning Coleman single mantle 200A built in 1959 in better than average condition.
Have a propane stove conversion, hooked to a tree and bottle. I did this for ease of use in cold weather. Makes it much easier. and quicker in the Am.Where did you get a propane adapter?

I have no idea, I suspect its what ever they had on hand at the time....Love the teardrop bell shape. Have a 1960's Coleman(all Green), and a early 60's Thermos (metallic silver/blue) lantern.
A question: Why did Coleman use RED on some of their equipment, and use all green (traditional) on most other models? This question is pre-silver models.
Welcome to the disease!After reading through this entire thread I remembered I have a single burner Coleman like in the video on the previous page, not as old as that one but probably 30+ years old. I need to look through my garage mess and find it and see what kind of shape it is in. Pretty sure after going through this thread I've caught the disease and will now be looking for old Coleman products in pawn shops, flea markets and yard sales! I have some solar lights but there's something about the glow of a Coleman gas lantern!
Not right off. Check oldcolemanparts.com I don't know how much of the propane stuff he deals in though.Well I went through all my closed containers in the Garage and didn't find my single burner Coleman stove but I did find a Coleman Lantern I forgot I had! My guess is it's about 20 years old, not antique by any means. My guess it's been sitting in that container for 10+ years, pulled it out of the box, hooked up a one pound propane tank and it fired up after I took the top off and used a lighter to ignite it. Looks like the part that allows you to push a button to create a spark is bad. Anybody know the part name for the push button spark thingy?
Unfortunately it doesn't look like that. The model I have has the button built in and then you can see a white rod with a metal exposed tip. I imagine it's one of the ones on this page but none of them shows pictures to compare to what I have. I'll have to remove it and take some pictures. I probably need to figure out if the problem is in the button mechanism or the electrode.
