    After some tinkering i have managed to get this Coleman running well.
    A lot of the trouble I had was getting pressure which turned out to be a sticky ball in the filler cap valve.
    Thanks to lockdown and car trouble on my last fuel run, supplies of kerosene are running low, but I do have 32 litres of mystery solvent to get rid of and if this will run ok on it then great success.
    It is currently running on brake cleaner and using 500cp butterfly mantels, some more appropriate mantels will be fitted soon. It is date stamped 11 29
    Enjoy
