I have a three burner Preway I inherited from my parents who bought it in the 30's. We used it until we got our first tear. I have a digital copy of the manual if you want to PM me an email address I can send you a copy. They work well, one of the cast iron burners has a top grate that helps to heat the generator.

Tapatalk is actually easier to get photos up than the desktop site. When entering a post there is a little up arrow on the left. Tap that and the typing area expands revealing a grey square with a blank page icon in it that has a plus sign. Just tap that and follow your nose.

There are also some extra icons below it. The one of a camera let's you take a photo and upload it or the one next to it that looks like a painting of mountains let's you upload a photo you have already taken.

Dunno about the preway, but great thing about my '50s era Coleman is I can still get parts.

Tip with the old stoves like yours: if you find the pump on the tank isn't working so well anymore, you can pull it apart at re-wet the seal, since its leather.
