I stopped for one min at a yard sale and somebody dropped a turd in the back seat of my truck. Can't trust anybody anymore lol I cleaned it up a little...

Nice find, especially for the globe.
Thanks,

Better like that, imagine finding one lit on your porch
The Squirrels are up to something....

If you need a Sun Flame Generator Model 100-107 ( for Sunflame lanterns models 105, 106, 107 and 110) give me a PM, I have close to 80 of those, 15 bucks each.

So the old saying apparently is not true. Looks like you really can polish a turd!

Lighting it should be fairly straight forward. It’s when you go to extinguish it that problems sometimes arise.

Unless the Schrader valve is leaking,
As you pump it up and if the valve leaks, fuel fills the generator, and when you open the valve and light it, it's flooded and whoosh a flaming turd.
