When the lantern is running as good as possible, Try flipping it upside down breifly.
If the light gets brighter you still have some Fuel Air/Tube troubles.

Ok, Lots of info here.
The Tip cleaner at the tip of the generator controls the amount of flow, not the valve.
The more you unscrew, the more flow you get.

honestly sounds like a generator tip. (too much fuel)
