200A Lantern fuel/air tube question

#1

Post by MiguelHerbert »

I have a 200a fuel air tube, that--when you hold on to the nut--will spin in place. It stays attached. Is this a performance/safety issue of any kind?
thanks

As long as it's only the outer air tube spinning it will be fine. The inner fuel tube is the one that needs to stay put.

thanks Toby,
Am I correct that some of the tubes will move just slightly, but do not rotate?

Yes Miguel some move more than others, some not at all. As long as no fuel enters between the top air hole and bottom orfice it will work assuming everything else is like it should be.

I run into this issue a bunch of times. I’ve replaced so as is, and others after lightly crimped them to hold em in place. Both uncrimoed spinning, and the crimped not spinning, work fine

I noticed the same thing on the first one I took apart. Thought for sure I broke something.
