Rhu Roo. You got it bad now.

Great looking 242. Mothers Polish to polish the font. Viniger dip for the brass parts. Look inside the tank for rust and crap. Expect to need a new cap gasket. Remove the pump and oil the pump leather. Neats foot oil is the official oil to use but I just use 3 in 1 or sewing machine oil. Many others also use that. Is the check valve rod still there? You should be able to turn the pump knob and tighten up something in there. When you remove the pump there should then be a square shaft brass rod in there. It is easiest to put the pump back in if you remove the rod and slip it into the pump shaft and then replace every thing working the leather into the bore.

You can tell the globe buy the color of the lettering. Red or White is definitely a replacement. The lettering should be green and off the top of my head should have the green sunrise on it. It might be very hard to see as it gets worn off. It takes a #21 mantle. I would use an older coleman mantle or a new peerless of that size.

You are now on the slippery slope.

Oh, here is a link to rebuilding a 200A. They are pretty much the same, use the same generator. The 242 has two air tubes up the sides and made of cast brass, is pretty much the biggest difference.

Coleman rebuild

Soon you to will be mainlining CF

40 would be my max I would of payed for that. It looks to be all there. Would be nice to see if the globe is labeled and what color the labeling is ( as Wolffarmer said).
can you talk the person to 35. Ha hahahah :lol:

If the fuel cap is too tight and you need a tool to take it off , wrap the cap with a small scrap of leather to protect it from tool marks ( tape of cloth is not thick enough leather works like a charm ). And try not to scratch the tank as well getting the cap off.. like I did on my Burgundy,ocuh. :( I was going to use a piece of cardboard with a hole cut in it and places over the cap to protect the paint, but was in a hurry.

Ya what Randy said about the 242B. Nice looking lantern! I have one that looked about the same and polished up real nice and shiny. Another thing to note is the fuel cap and hole are smaller than a regular Coleman lantern. I had to find a vintage funnel to fuel my lantern. Good luck! They can seem a little intimating to take apart, but you'll get the hang of it.

Just making a virtual 200A burgundy for my virtual camper plans.

Man four hours goes by fast. Still need to add the fuel fill area and pump base. I did not have a protractor in the house to measure the angle they go into the tank. My butt is sore so I gonna stop for the night. :?

Any 200a abusers have and of the internal working lay out of a bench you can take pictures of. I need a good quality image of the valve assembly from the side, with a ruler laid out next to it. I’m not brave enough to take apart my own one.

Ha :lol: haha Ya you don’t know me very well. I plan my projects out so well, that I spent more time planning. Then on the first cut ( or part of the project ) I screw up and now have to compensate on the rest of the project for the first mistake. My moto, Cut twice because you only measured once.

I just screen captures a few good pictures of valve assembly off Flea-Bay so I’m good for a picture.


EDIT Added Pic and Text

A few more hours out of my life. Not too shabby, but I'm not gonna do threads on the ends of the rods. Still need to do the fuel spout, the pump. I used my 200a and it is as close to the actual size shape and scale as I can get it.

just when I get my first paycheck folks it will be worth pushing propane instead of pushing hay bales on a semi truck!!!!!!!!!!!!! heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

for some reason the work with propane pays more than the work with hay bales!!!!!!!!!!!!

and the hours are sucks!

but wagen dude is right.

when camping I am still white gas. other than the propane coleman skillet.

I am far to lazy for the old propane lantern

so its even a converted wally world kersone lantern using 12 volt for lights.

and its even 12 volt for heat.

but when I get the fist pay check.

I belive I will officaly retire from pushing hay bales and be really thankfull to God, that I am now pushing propane!!!!!!!!!!!

but belive me there is less bs and less red tape and saftey crap to standing on a deck of a semi truck pushing hay than pushing propane! yikes.
