Re: 1967 Military Coleman lantern

Thxs for posting the photo and the awesome reviews. It makes me think about all the Vietnam Veterans that might have used a lantern like this one. The Proud sense of Service/Sacrifses they did for the South Vietnamese people and our Country! Thxs! Welcome Home Vietnam Vet!

Sprayed carb cleaner down the pump tube. Layed the lantern on it's side with pump tube facing up and let t...

Re: 1967 Military Coleman lantern

I field stripped my 1967 Milspec Coleman 252 lantern and reassembled it. It went really well. Cleaned out the dirt dobber nest, air tubes and cleaned off all the dirt/dust on it. Noticed one of the air tubes has a copper plug inserted into the butt end. The generator tube has a brass lock nut on the...

Re: 1967 Military Coleman lantern

I received a reply from "chucker" about info on how to disassemble my 1967 military Coleman lantern. Chucker recommended searching for "Curlyjoe_99" on the Coleman Collectors Forum website. I'm kind of illiterate on today's technology. My 19 y/o daughter couldn't find it either. I need the step by s...
