I just picked up a Coleman 502 stove at a church rummage sale, in a box with the instructions and other bits of ephemera still in there. I figured the citizens of the internet would appreciate a scan of the instructions, for not only there usefulness but the great old graphics. To see a high resolution scan version, just click on the image.
I would say I was pleasantly surprised that after I added a little fuel it fired right up, but with these old Coleman stoves you almost expect that, even if it is over 50 years old (the font is dated June 1966). So I guess I can say I was not disappointed.
