I found one.[sHa_yes2]

Does anyone know the fitting size to connect it to a lp bottle?

I don't know the fitting size, but the little stove adapter works, check this auction.

There's not a lot to that.  I bet there would be a smallish market of guys that would buy them if someone built them.

I bet there would be too. The question would be whether the time/material costs would result in a retail price that would be considered "affordable".

A few more pics of the adapter all shined up.  The stamped steel flange is soaking in EvapoRust.  The inside part of adapter is a 2 piece brass unit with a rubber insert that wraps around the needle on the lantern.  The outer part is a simple brass fitting (I need to head to the hardware store to find a male match and connect that to a hose).

The middle is galvanized pipe.  Looks like they used a thread sealer to boot.

Make sure the rubber in the adapter is crack free as that would be a cause for a leak. I own #2 of these adapters and it allows me to run both of my 5120 and 5122 off of a bulk tank if needed...campinut...

Got working on the 5122 again.  When I removed the manifold, broke all 3 screws.  So drilled and tapped for some M4-07 screws and got her hooked up again.  Now just need to build an adaptor/hose for some propane.

Wondering if someone here won the 5122 LP adapter Mike was selling.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/COLEMAN-LP-LANTERN-CONVERSION-KIT-/312464265614?_trksid=p2047675.m43663.l10137&nordt=true&rt=nc&orig_cvip=true

If so, could we get some dimensions on the hose adapter?

I've got a full original setup, see my posts for pics, what dimensions are you looking for?

Thanks Ryan, I’m looking for dimmensions of the female hose fitting that attaches to the ‘canister adapter’ male end protruding lantern door where the LP can would sit.

I tried Russ’s method without success - see pic below.

It seems a special bevel is needed for a leak free fit. I tried the hose gasket, but still had a leak.

Here's the original female fitting end.  I looked for a way to make this end from purchased parts or find something else that used it with no success. 
The seal is not in the threads but an o-ring. Without this end I think the brass end on the converter would need to be changed to work with a currently available hose fitting. coleman lp hose end.jpg  rsz_img_1070.jpg
