The gentleman who survived knew something was up. He opened his from around the corner of a structure with a shovel or some other garden tool.

Prior to that they had found the extra unused dynamite in a dumpster at a building I had recently worked at.

A man should know when to turn a GPA into parts... But I'm not that guy... I bought this pile of a B for the sunrise globe it was wearing. Thought it would be handy to have some extra bighat B parts in reserve... Then today I got to looking at it a little closer and decided to give it a pressure test to see if the wrinkled top had any cracks... Passed with flying colors so it got a fount flush as it was missing a filler cap when found, fueled up and using a lamp cap pressurized to see if it would run...

As found mostly. Ain't she a beaut?

Image

After a pressure test pass and some fuel thrown at it.

Image

Yep those are course weave silk-lites... Going to try to save those!

After that all passed I disassembled what was left and mounted the valve assembly in a vice and straitened the top of the fount the best I could, re-clocked the valve assembly correctly and redone my pressure test to ensure nothing had changed. Dug through my spare parts not finding a suitable collar so I threw an F collar on for functions sake... Found an extra nickel cap in my parts, & installed a new leather. The cage and burner have a horrible spray paint job, but it will live that way for the time being. The vent is nearly a 2 piece with a gaping hole where the vent stud goes through for some reason... Like I said I'm not a smart guy... But a bighat B deserves a second chance 😁 and yes I saved the silkies!!

Image

Image

Now someone else can buy it for the sunrise globe someday 😁

Just because this is my only family lantern, my uncle gave it to me last year and I finally got around to cleaning it up. The fount was full of crud, that was the hardest part of this cleanup.

It helps... Doesn't knock down the light as much as you would think, but it does helps... I still think lamps are the ideal camp light 👍

Very cool Timm despite the battery.

Thank you!

They sure made a lot of 427 lanterns. I just can’t leave them behind either.

Thank you!
