    I have gone off of some pictures from off the lantern gallery and Graham has kindly sent me some measurements to go by, I have a local sheet metal worker that I will take to when im done, probably use stainless steel or brass, depends on what they have in stock,
    I also have a machinist looking at making the leaver.

    Im having air leak problems.
    Tha actual leaver either shut needle up and down as in open, still leaks air in the up possition . Is this normal.
    The bottom of the generator where it screws to the fuel pick up leaks air even though i think i have tightened it, also where the fuel pick up meets the tank slite leak.
    Lastlt just above the leaver there is a glan nut, is there packing ment to be in there, i did put some graphite tape in there.
    Oppen to ideas

    Hi fellas i now have my Aladdin 14a up and running. 20191028_152000.jpg
    A bit of fiddling to get it right, the leaver is not just a on off part but a fuel flow thing, full open ogange flames too much fuel, but once i played around abit it has come good. 20191028_132855.jpg
    This was when i first lit it up, heavy smoke big orange flames, the leaver acts as a fuel feed ajuster. Either way VERY COOL, and once again thath you vraham for you contributions, very much appreciated.

    I think you should check that the nipple is on tight; and that your jet is not enlarged...

    Cheers

    Also, if you have the long ceramic flame spreader, check that one for cracks, that happened to me, i changed to a more normal Radius 119 spreader.
