Kevin your probably right. So go to the plumbing section and use the brass fittings to do your sizing. I don't know, I haven't messed with this stuff much. I have however used this method in other applications. Another way would be to screw an NPT die onto the end of the pipe you have already bent, ...

Steve, the napa auto parts store in my town has a huge nut and bolt selection. In this section they have a display that you can use to precisely get the right size. If you have a napa they might have the same thing. Also you could go down to you hardware store and dig through the nut and bolt sectio...

That's really interesting, I don't know where it could have come from. The guy had the 220 and a few 1980's models at his hunting camp. He brought them home after he quit hunting. His father or grandfather may have replaced the cap years ago, and got rid of the old lantern<IMG src="http://www.websit...

By the way, can anyone tell me if the filler cap on the 220 I found is Coleman or is it a replacement? I haven't seen one of these before. Thanks!

I got it for ten bucks and I think you were right about it being a 327. Thank you!<br /> <br /> <br /> <a href="http://s591.pho...

Great idea Deb. He already told he gave five dollars for it at a yard sale and he didn't know anything about it. I want to give him a good value for it so the info on the 25 dollars is useful as well. I don't want to pay to much for it though. I figured out a while back that all things for sale have...

I called the swap shop radio program sat. morning and let the whole world (well at least the broadcasting area) know I was looking for Lanterns and such.
