What do i need to get this one in working conditions.... missing the ceramic? what else, with pictures please. so i can understand better
looks like it is broken... so i have to solve this (welding????)
Well you have to strip it down to see what works and what not. The globe is wrong, you miss the complete burner even the thread is gone. Possible an electrocution victim ? I don't see a pre heater disc.
electrocution Victim???? hmmm i do not understand. How can, if it is a kerosene burner.... do you have pictures of how i must be? this can really help me... i had my doubts about the globe.. Wim, Ik ben belg die in Argentina woont. jij spreekt waarschijnlijkNederlands... had al op die site gekeken, maar vond eerlijk gezegd niet wat ik wou zien.... de brander??? met ceramica en de mantel nietwaar?
A fine restoration project.
Wim means someone may gave tried to fix it so it would run on electricity instead of kerosene.
ok, thanks, but i do not see any manipulation or wiring i must say
Well the air mixing tube or J-tube end , like all pressure lanterns, in a metal burner which holds the ceramic head.
The J-tube tehrefore has threads at the end to screw on the metal burner.
You can get an idea here: Renovation of a Px834.
There you can find the mixing tube parts as well as the pre heating disc and parts.
As george said: I mean or think that someone tried or did convert it in electrical use. Together with mounting this nice but not usable globe.
Otherwise it would be difficult to loose the thread at the end of the J-tube.
thanks Wim, i just printed out the file. i will send you a picture later
see picture below,, is this is what i need? will that fit?
it seems i have the Petromax modern acccepts o 500 CP nozzle, because the steel mouniting is fixed on the mixing tube and is not removable. but i see that this part is BROKEN due i cannot turn the preheating sistem on....
i see now...
I am not sure what you mean. The picture shows a HASAG type J-tube, picture is called "petromax ignator" both are not correct.
Study the pictures of the manual and look on your lamp if they are present.
The pre heater disc is a fairly large disc like an old ash tray which sits under the generator coil.
You fill it via the little trap door.
In the disc is a hole for the ignitor which gives a spiky flame towards the mantle to ignite.
ok, next week i will desarm the lamp and will post them. thanks to all for the replies.
