Coleman Canada 128C running on Paraffin.
Good old reliable Coleman. Always looking good and working well. Nice lamp. ::Neil::
As is without any modification?
Well not by me. It has an R55 generator which I understand will work with paraffin.
Clever using an R55 generator on the coleman
Most R-55 generators have "V" gas tips. A collector from Canada named Matthew Reid compiled a rather extensive list of Coleman generators. All their characteristics such as which model they fit, gas tip designation, overall length, gas tip orifice dimension. It's quite extensive. Is he a member of this forum? This "list" is quite handy when it comes to doing a conversion from gasoline to kerosene(paraffin)on Coleman products.
Possibly... Is he from Alberta?
We have a member called Matthewq4b from there.
From the few posts he made, he sounds quite knowledgeable when it comes to Coleman.
That's him. I sent him a PM last night so see if it is OK for me to post this list. I have it in a documents folder. It may have to be "massaged" to be able to post it on this forum. Once I get the OK I can forward it to the appropriate person for "conversion" if necessary.
Old post, I know.
Can you check the tip on the generator on your Coleman 128C to see whether it has a “Q” or “V” tip, please?
