Re: coleman 226 pressure issue

No worries, if you search for this issue, you'll find quite a few posts about it. This is why the original 222 generators are so highly coveted.

Re: coleman 226 pressure issue

When full of fuel, these do require very frequent pumping. If you can find an old 222 generator, it has a smaller jet and requires less pumping. When it has about a half a tank, it runs a bit longer

Don't even bother fixing this thing....Just send it to me for proper disposal.

But Seriously, it'll need to be brazed, silver solder will not hold up to the heat. Or spend about as much for a new Genny as you spent on the lantern...lol

Pulling a Valve Out of a Brass Fount

It's always a tense moment with an older brass fount. I have spun a bung or two in my life... Nothing a little heat and solder didn't take care of. I did however have a Kamplite fount that collapsed the top of the fount due to rust/corrosion. Just take your time and be careful.

You need to pull the entire valve out and clean the tube at the bottom. also, be careful straightening the generator pricker as they are made of unobtainium. I am working on a Kamplite version right now.

Most AGM singles of that era will work with a 220 generator. You'll need to modify the pricker, but it should work. If it runs too rich, sub a tip from a 200 on the 220 generator.
