How to Convert a Kamplite RL2 eccentric block


Post by 242burner »

With help from the members of the board I decided to convert this Triple Burgandy RL2 Kamplite by AGM to run on a standard Coleman 220 generator.
You will need a Dremel, a 1/16 drill bit, a Coleman eccentric block as a guide, and a pump rod.

Comparison of the eccentric blocks:

The AGM eccentric block is the same size as a standard Coleman pump rod. Cut it to length. I decided to drill a 1/16 hole FIRST then cut the top notch. I then used the original eccentric block as a guide for the tip cleaner notch. In order to not go too deep I put the rod in the vise and ground out the notch. It was over in seconds

When you are done you will have this:

Two shots of a nice bright lantern.
