gonna finish up a 9D, now finished

Postby doug hodder » Sat Jan 18, 2014 8:55 pm

I got started on this stove then got going on the latest trailer build so it's been on the back burner for quite a while. Since the Kamp King is finished, and I haven't lost the parts for the stove, I figured I might as well get-r-dun. This is a 9D Coleman from 1930. I got it from my "secret pickers" back in '12. It's been in pieces for 1.5 years now. I degreased it, sanded and straightened all the sheet metal the best I could, rebuilt the 7 rod gennie, polished the brass, got all of it in primer today. Since it's been so warm here lately, I figure I can get it into paint next weekend, then it's just assembly and a decal on it. It'll be sprayed in a high gloss black acrylic enamel. Trying to catch up on my stockpile of stoves that need to be done. Doug

Degreased it, pressure washed...then stripped the paint as best I could, what doesn't get stripped gets sanded.

Prior to the final assembly, I always like to fire up this type of stove before it goes in the box. Some of the older Coleman stoves are built so that the burner assembly and fuel tank can be removed in 1 operating unit. By firing it up now, it prevents any potential flaming drips on the new paint, and a fire is much easier to deal with when it's not in the box.

This stove has what is called the "hot blast" for pre-heating. What you do is to crack the valve a bit when the gennie is in the pre-heat position and dribble a bit of fuel in the cup. Light the cup, when it starts to burn down, crack the valve and feed the fire and it will start to turn to a nice blue flame. The more you crack it, the more heat you put into the gennie. You can actually make it "roar". Once pre-heated, they say you can just rock it back into the burn position while running, but I close it down and reposition it, then relight it. I was pleased, lit first time, no leaks and operated like it should. I'll do a 2nd clean on the burners as it loosened some scale on them and the burn wasn't as even as I would like. I may also have the inner iron ring out of position.

The guy that had the decals seems to have dropped off the planet, so I may cut my own stencil and paint the tank on it. They had either the water slide decal or the stencil treatment. For an 84 year old stove, I'm happy with how it's going to turn out. I think the older ones from the 20's put out more BTU's than the newer ones, but I have no real proof....could do a water boil experiment I guess. Doug

Got the wings and the lid riveted back on this morning and bolted in the workings. Runs like a champ! I know it's over restored, but it's a 20$ stove and I have a lot of fun with them. Gives me a chance to keep in practice with the spray gun.

$20? Where do I send the money? Beautiful job. And if you really do want to sell it, how much?
