    These are easy to fettle. They often work "as found" but nearly always just want a clean and maybe a new generator to work like a new lantern. With very few moving parts there is nothing to adjust so dismantle and clean out fuel feed and air tubes. Check the generator is passing fuel and it will run. ::Neil::

    Traditionaly Coleman #21a mantles but any 250/300cp single tie will work fine. ::Neil::

    Great lantern, as they say, "these are bullet-proof!" You can't go wrong. Every time I would see one of these at a flea market (car boot sale) I would pick it up. Sometimes $20, $30 or $40 and that was my limit. Then I began to realize, after taking a few apart, they are damn near "idiot proof"! You really have to work hard to destroy one of these. It also got expensive after 8-10 of these things were purchased!;):p:thumbup::mrgreen:
    ENJOY!!!:D/
