Using the coleman parts number 400-5571, a short search found one for $11 ;) :D

Find another on craigs that is a piece of garbage or busted..should be able to get it for $5-10..and fix your better one..has to be cheaper than a new part and "shipping costs".Peak ones come up all the time on craigs around here..not much demand for them because of their weight.
Right now there is one locally on craigs(400 or 400a)for $35..about the new price..probably won't sell for that...and it's in good shape.
You can also post for "items wanted" on craigs that you want one and why.. and how much you want to pay..probably get just the part for $10 or less no problem...or in the "sports equipment" area (wanted,WTB,want to buy,etc..)

Actually, it looks like it's still available for the 400A.

??????? Why pay for a piece of garbage or busted one to only find out the part you need may also be broken?

Seems like a headache and a lot of work to save $1 :lol:

Looks like you found the part you need anyway so I hope it all works out for you :D

I was assuming the part he needed could be verified to be in good shape...

Most post was 2 minutes after yours... :roll: At the time of the writing the new part hadn't been found...

Sigh...

I guess Peak Ones are "vintage" but it depends on how you write it and to whom it is considered "vintage"..if someone is "picky" about the definition..they are buttheads in my book.Others may not care as much... :roll:
I sure as heck know I'm "vintage"..Like fine old wine!..but the wife may consider me as an "antique" instead..depends a lot about when,where,and what she happens to be looking at at that moment..meaning ..maybe a "nonvintage" comparison chippendale dude...... :lol:

On the other hand..I had a butthead on ebay question my definition about a camera item being "mint" in the "Ask a seller a question" for the item.I told him he didn't need to bid on the item if the word bothered him.The guy that won the auction left in my feedback.."Yep..it's "MINT!"... :lol:
