whaT GENNY DOES A 242A OR C TAKE?

Postby slowcowboy » Sat Jul 27, 2013 8:45 am

I am about to work on restoring the blue coleman 243a before walk the winds in august and I was wandering what generator to use . its a older 40s or 30s single mantle lantern and I was wandering if I just pop one for a 200A in it?


the pumps would not be availbe so do I just oil up the pump leathers on these older lanterns?


its got a blue font in really good shape so I don't think I will touch it with the spray can.

good thing my blue coleman surived I just about lost it to a barn cat that slipped in the house this moring. probaly if it had fell off the shelf by the window all i would have lost would have been the globe I bet if these lanterns hit the ground they are tough as they were made in america of good strong steel years ago!

I was in mortal terror though as I was trying to coax the scared to death barn cat out of the house!

Slow, I am pretty sure that the genny's, glass and pumps are interchangeable between the 242's and 200's. The fuel caps are NOT the same. I had to find one of the old fashioned fuel funnels to fill mine. Man that opening is small. Good luck and have fun at "Walk The Winds". Take lots of :pictures: for us.

Slow, are you sure the generator is no good? Have you tried firing it up without tearing it apart?

no I haven't even touched it yet. I just have a habit of instanly puting in a new generator on a lantern I get my hands on for restoration and new fuel caps.

I never thought about just trying it with out tearing it down.

thats a thought.
