    After a lot of parts, effort and fiddling, as well as mantle testing and experimentation, I finally have these two working well together. As you would expect the light levels from them is now identical.
    I think that these two really did not represent value for money and they will never be pretty but I did learn a great deal about later Coleman lanterns.

    They are burning well now, well done. Worth the effort.
