I have ruined (rookie move on my part) the Tip Cleaner Body on the above listed lantern. Looks like Mike has one for sale at OCP,  item #220B3571. Does anyone know if that one will work for the 220F? Also, the valve stem assembly is apparently stuck. I have followed the directions on the tutorials and it is not coming out. I'm currently letting it soak overnight in a WD-40 bath. The small brass ring came off but the packing is really in there and will not let go. Any tips for the new kid would be much appreciated. 

Regards, Jim.

Yes, the part 220B3571 should work. If you ever get an extra tip-cleaning lever, cut the handle off and use the remainIng piece to thread into the housing to prevent this from happening again the next time you are working on a lantern.

Just be sure there is no pressure in the fount, expect some flame if you're tugging with the torch applied.  🙂

Well, the parts came in from OCP and I finished assembly. The lantern was a gift and it was in pretty rough shape with no globe but it cleaned up well. Also included in the gift were some mantles. They appeared to be from the '80s or '90s. They were not the Gold Top or Silk-Lites, just an older, dirtier package. I went ahead and installed them burned them in and when I fired them up they produced a really white glow. I went ahead and fired up my 220K for a side by side comparison and there was really no comparison. The F was whiter and brighter, and easier to light. Is this the lantern or the mantles making that nice white light you think? I just recently rebuilt the K (my 1st rebuild!) and it's squared away but the mantles were newer.  At any rate, the F is a nice addition to my small collection. I did by another F last Sunday for $15, probably won't rebuild that one anytime soon. I've got another K that was gifted to me and will be working on that after the holidays, as well as a 200A I want to convert to Kerosene. So many old lanterns, so little time!

Regards, Jim.
