As the title says I am looking for a complete 3705 agm lantern valve assembly. The generator cleaning lever is broken on mine. Figured it would be easier to just replace the whole thing if somebody has one. If not looking for the geared cleaning lever. Thanks.

I got lucky and found needed parts from a stress cracked model 100 off the bay. Good luck.

I know very little about the agm’s. This one has the slightly down canted valve. I will start looking on that site. Thanks.

Pics help immensely too. Most people here cant ID that model based on a number.

Other models have parts, but you are correct about the unique valve.
I bought a second 3705 to get parts, but ended up buying a 100 also to get the second 3705 complete. Turned out I have two running lanterns with different, original colors. May be what you will need to do.

Again appreciate it. I am fixing to go in to work in a few. The lantern is out in the shop in pieces. Will get some photos on as soon as I can. That’s has always been my problem about buying parts lanterns. Satisfying to make them not parts lanterns. I have four lanterns that are definitely parts due to bad founts. But they’re again always want to try and bring them back especially since one is a Christmas. Oh well I ramble. Coffee hasn’t kicked in

It looked good and was the right price but when I tore it down I found that the cleaning lever had the gear broken off and missing.

Same as mine, lever just spun. I think the seller wasn't honest as to condition, as I looked at some of his past sales and he had knowledgeable info on other stoves. I can get a pic of the valve in profile in a bit.

Which other models use the same cleaning lever setup?

At least the usually stress cracked 100. Running 3705, cracked 100 for similar valve style but not angled.

So all the agms have the geared cleaning lever set up?

No. You may have to do like me and buy a bunch, many are much cooler than Coleman lanterns. A good percentage have stress cracks.

I told myself I would only buy unusual this year.

AGM would be the ticket then. My parts 100 was more than the 3705 I needed parts for. A rabbit hole for sure. Check out Terry Marsh's site for sometimes better pics of models and a little description if you have not visited there yet.

Will this work? Cleaning lever and eccentric works good. I had it in my parts box and happened to see this post. If that’s what you need send me your address and you can have for cost of shipping as I’m happy to help.

Don't think that will work, uses a e-block? Look at my 100 valve, pricker lever assembly is offset.
