    I found an Akron Mil-spec at a bootfair last year, which had been " converted" to electricity ( and badly!). After a fair bit of fettling I converted it back and managed to get it working. However, as is often the case with Akron, pressure cracks in the tank have put pay to using it for anything more than a quick demo. The tank did not have a parts well but the pressing in the tank showed where it would have been. I know it is a long shot but does anyone have a tank in good condition that they don't want? I would like to keep the lamp in an authentic condition so don't want to have to use an alternative tank ( Coleman 220C?) unless I need to. regards

    You may want to post a picture of your Akron MilSpec to help us see the type of fount (tank) you are needing.
    Good luck on your hunt, someone out in the world of lampies may have one for you.
    Cheers
    Pete
