Higgins profane question

I was wondering if anyone here could tell me what type of propane cannister this Higgins lantern uses. Are they still available?

Thanks,

A 237 find

Came across my first kero lantern today. Came with what looks like the original box, instruction paperwork, mantles and a wrench tool (not pictured). I admittedly don't know much about these lanterns. It is US made with three language instructions on the valve control knob and collar. I cannot find ...

Thanks for the support and birthday wishes for the daughter. It was a fun project and luckily I had one sticker left from my OCP stash to slap on there. The '54-61 220 sticker gives it a "vintage" feel!

I know I know, it's not a GPA. My daughter has been watching me fettle lanterns and stoves for months and she says she wants a pink lantern. She's not quite there for GPA so I picked up a cheap green LED and a rattle can. Just in time for her birthday!

Hello there,

I was wondering if anyone could help me with an ID on this stove. Not much to go on. Has the words, "Make the Tight Line Stay" stamped on stove. I truly don't even know what fuel type this takes looking at the valves, etc.

Yep steel, no cracks on visual inspection. Will have to build pressure and dunk it. It was stored dry in a 'little brown chest' ice box for decades according to the farmer. Should be a fun restoration.

Thanks everyone for assistance in this pesky 200A.

Thanks Leviticus! D421... when the valve is closed the hissin' stops. Also no bubbles around the valve on dunk test. I am thinking about frankensteining my working 200A and testing it part by part until I figure it out.

The pickup tube on the old F/A tube was free spinning (the nut portion was tight to the valve body) thus the replacement from OCP. The new F/A tube seems to mate nicely to the valve assembly. With the generator on and pumped up it still only begins to squirt near open throttle. That's why I'm wonder...
