    Gave the lantern and mica a wipe down with a damp rag to remove the dust. Not too bad looking with a date of 6 36. Blank collar but was told it was an early 247. Also had to dig deep into my secret parts stash to come up with what I hope is a correct vent nut? Cast preheat cup and the mica is in pretty decent shape. Pumped up and held pressure but swapped out the cap gasket for something to do as well as gave the pump cup a few drops of oil. Other then that fueled it up gave it a few pumps tied one on lit the preheat and that was that. Burns pretty good considering who knows the last time it saw fire. Never fails to amaze me how they just keep ticking along with a bit of fettling after who knows how many years of sitting idle. It's my new favorite! :)
