Re: 243A burner screen

FYI, not only does the burner cap unscrew but so does the burner tube the cap is attached to. Biggest problem is either one or the other will loosen but not usually both.

Re: 200A Green dates

You have to remember that bottom plates of lanterns were in a large bin. When new ones were made, they went right on top of the last batch. This is why there are odd ball date Christmas lanterns and burgundies. Here is a 6/80 green currently in my possesion: https://i.postimg.cc/cxdW7NvQ/IMG-4977.jp...

Re: 413H: No Blue Flame until Secondary Burner is Lite

Check to make sure the "U-Tube", where the generator enters, is clear of any obstructions, like dead bugs or even spider webs.

Sometimes a new generator will improve things.

Re: Buying replacement parts

A 222B check valve should be the same as a 200A or 220 check valve. The air stem is shorter, of course. I am uncertain as to what a 252B lantern is. But mil-spec lanterns pretty much have interchangable parts.

Re: Scored 10/91 Coleman 288

The layer 288s without a burner cage have metal E-blocks. The 288s with a burner cage had a plastic E-block and no heat shield. Coleman took a "belt and suspenders" approach by making the E- block metal and adding the heat shield.

Yours is safe with the heat shield in place.
