Posting to the lamp forum rather than the stove forum, this time. To those of you watching both, apologies... Greetings. New member here and first post, so don't be shy if I need pointing in the right direction. I searched and couldn't find the answer, so here goes... I have two 1954 Coleman military lanterns I inherited from my grandfather. Both have managed to light the night, but not to the extent that I'd say they deserve the "sunshine" moniker. My thinking: rebuild time, clean house, remove lacquer, and replace consumables like washers and seals. Watching the takedown of the single-mantel model on this forum gets the fuel control valve off, the pump assembly removed, the generator off, and everything else loosened up. However, I can't figure out how to get the frame off the font! On the take-apart here, there's a slot in the bottom of the frame. Neither of mine have this slot, so with the nut loosened as much as it will fit under the frame (apologies now for the lack of correct terminology) I still can't lift off the frame. Any suggestions would be appreciated. My grandfather was much more mechanically-inclined than I am, so I'd like to make him proud but keep thinking he's up there face-palming my efforts at present!
