Howdy doody, All. Here's another one of those fabulous Rockets ! After I give it a thorough re-spray & service fettle. I'd bought it off a newbie seller, over in America, telling me it was the ladies first sale, within .com It's been a labour of trial & error, has this one, because I've never re-sprayed before, using professional paints. They were only aerosol sprays, but as I suspected I'd be having to get some tinting done, the learned shop owner, had to mix & match, before he could come up with a colour, we both felt "well enough" substituted that old mottled light/sky blue, hammerite finish effect; so notice-able of the Originals. It's a Fiat Turquoise, the main base colour, then as this wasn't a two part mix, I'd to buy some expensive lacquer, that you've got to fully use up, within (pushing it, say 30 hours from opening, but it sets useless, anything over). A very expensive episode, it was, trying to get it done correctly, outdoors, with the inclement weather, constantly frosting the sheen down; but it got done & dusted, eventually; to a nice enough qualifying position, on the roster. The de-cal transfer, was a doddle to put on, because it wasn't a de-cal, it was just a sticker (therefore, much quicker)(poet, didn't know it) Fred Kuntz (nice chap, over in Ohio (USA) CrStNa Country), there courtesy of. Cheers Fred. I had some happy times, knitting all that wire wool together, to get almost all ? of the rust & gunge, free from all the metals. The brass wasn't too bad within the valves fuel runs, and because I'd managed to remove this valve, from the fount, I could take a good inspection & fettle, at the JC's Air/Fuel intake valve (A nifty bit of kit, very intricate; I will try to also add some pictures of this, also, if I've room ?) The severe pitting is more or less, comprehensive, around most of the metal components / tubing, & base tray areas. Although (must point this out, possibly some one could give me a bit of advice, here please ?) I've had the lantern, alight with a burn, there was some type of leak going on, with yellow & blue flames, just little licks really, that kept continuously vacating the burner/air mixing reservoir block, just above the Kamplite generator. I watched it non stop, for 5 minutes, outside, then decided to turn off. I could only think the culprit could be a tiny fracture, within the steel tubing, or the threads, which may have allowed this; or if not, it was the old generators fault, as I'd to just try & 'make do' with this one, till a new one arrives from over the big pond. Any pointers, would be much appreciated ? As this lanterns re-furbishment, is a favour to a mechanic, down the road from where I live (How do, Maurice, if you're there !?) as he has always leant a hand, when a tricky problem part has evaded my attention & wranglings; I'd really be best to try & get that possibly dangerous behaviour, fully remedied & solved. I'll have a closer look at the parts with a looking glass, there maybe a crack to the threads, or the M/F threads, may just now be too worn, to fit snug enough any more ? I should really invest in a newer camera, also, as I'm not too happy with the clarity of the photo's; so I can just hope that what I'm leaving, can be deemed fit to display. I hope so. All being well, there'll be more to show off, lantern wise, from myself, to the forums Gallery and fellow Enthusiasts, in a couple more months; I'm ringing my hands & not just towards Crimbo. . . . Then finally; the burner components, highlighting the damaged pitting surfaces. . . . Cheers all, for now; much more work, ahead (Good stuff) !! Regards, Jon.
