    Hello,
    I am trying to follow online help and rebuild an old 275 I picked up from my great uncle.
    I was doing fine until I got to the fuel tube where the shrader valve should be but all the removes when I unscrew is a small brass cap that the fuel rod runs through. I cant seem to remove anymore and nothing looks like a shrader valve down in that tube. Were there some 275s made with no shrader.
    Any help would be appreciated.
    Thanks

    Is your lantern a 275 or 275A? Both used Schrader valves, but the 275 also had a metering rod in the F/A tube where the A did not. I have used heat to get broken Schrader's out in the past... Just make sure the sealing surfaces of the Schrader valve are good and clean before re-assembly.

    Thanks for the response. It is a 275. I will try to take some pictures and post them later today. I put the lantern back together last night and I get pressure built up when I pump but no fire at all when I try to light. I will take it back apart and see if I can use some heat to get that valve out. It just doesn't look like there is a valve in there. All i see is a spring and what looks like the top of the pin/bar that moves us and down to allow fuel in. Maybe I just need to dig down in there some more. Thanks for the help.

    Thanks
    Josh

    Also - If you do not have a schrader tool, one might be helpful ?

    Part #5 in @Fireexit1's image is what you need to remove.

    If you haven't bought the replacement part yet it's available on www.oldcolemanparts.com. Search for valve core.

    If you heat up the fuel/air tube with a small propane torch that valve core should be easy to get completely out.

    Thanks,
    I actually have ordered replacement parts however I did heat the unit up last night and got it out. Replaced the Schrader valve but still had no fire. I spend much time cleaning the generator which I believe was the main issue and I finally got it to work. I have a refurbed generator coming so I think I have it in the right direction. Thanks for the help and advice.
