Re: Were any lanterns made in 7/83?

Searching eBay current and sold listings I see 2-83, 4-83, 6-83, 9-83 and 11-83. Models listed were 200A, 220K, CLX and CL2.

There may have been some propane jobs during the other months. Unfortunately base plates weren't stamped for every month of the year.

Re: Hello All

Hello there, CSauer! Welcome to the CCF.

You’re in the right place to get your gear back up and running. Try placing a WTB in the classifieds section. Hopefully you’ll find what you need to get your M1950 back on track.

Re: O-ring Question--Coleman 440 Ultra-Light

Just a follow up…

I bought the kit linked above and used the large o-ring from it to replace the one in my stove.

I’m back up and running with no more valve stem leaks.

Thanks for the help, Dan!

Yep, 200/200A generator as Jim also mentioned. It would work on the 242-type white-gas lanterns as well.

The valve bung on the 290 series is larger than the 1/8" NPT of the 242/200 series valves. So, unfortunately not without modification/making a bushing.

There are large 220-size founts with 1/8" NPT threads. My Canadian 639 is. Hopefully other can chime in with more info on that.
