Re: Fuel for 639c?

Ditch the 1111 Coleman mantle and go to a bigger mantle that will put more heat back into the generator. I prefer the Lighthouse 625 on all my big kero burners. The Peerless 24a is a long tube type mantle when burned in and does nicely as well. Then with more heat going to the generator you will ha...

Re: Fuel for 639c?

Klean Heat also has the added benefit of being able to store inside your lamp for extended period, up to about 5 months I think. I was told and even in manuals never to store kero inside your lantern for extended periods. Always empty when not in use.

Ulf, I didn’t know that you could control the carbon build up by timing runs. My thoughts are that carbon is going to form in generator no matter what, and depends more on what fuel you burn. CF (Coleman/Crown fuel) will burn cleaner than PG (pump gas), and kerosene will carbon up faster than the o...

Sounds like something is up with the fuel pickup. Possibly cracked or corroded letting some air to seep into the generator bubbling past the column of fuel. The pressurized air is normally kept in check by the liquid barrier of fuel between it and the pickup.
