Hi Everyone

I'm taking a 220h apart and cleaning it up, birthday lantern for my best man. Anyway, I can’t get the generator stem out. It spins just fine, the e block goes up and down. I've loosened the hex nut all the way, but the tip cleaner stem just spins. Should it just pull out? I haven’t tried any heat yet, maybe that is needed?

Thanks

Jon

This is for a 220f but the same principal. https://www.oldcolemanparts.com/resources/re_2lant_a.php

The 220H must be different. There is only one hex but, unlike the photos. Underneath the hex but, there is what looks like a brass (possibly packing) washer.

Yes, try heat.  Heat it up nice and hot with a propane torch. Do this with the tip cleaner removed.

Don't pull that part out. Unless my mind just wandered off, the H, J , and K are like a 200 assembly. Can be pulled apart but not meant to be.

When tearing one of those models down I follow the 200 single method.

If it is working properly as stated why pull it?

DARN MY CLUMSY FINGERS!!! I meant "gas tip!"  However, I am STILL WRONG, because I didn't even properly respond to the right part in question.  I am sorry if I misled or confused you.

Anyways, what Ed and GB said is good advice.  I need to avoid posting before the first cup of coffee of the day gets to my brain.

I’m lost...”generator stem”? Do you mean the pricker rod? You know that it hooks to the top of the e-block? Sometimes you have to jiggle the generator tube to unhook the rod.

Here's a photo of the problem. As you can see, I've got the nut off, but the thing just spins around, never coming out. Should it pull out, or is it threaded on the inside? I haven't tried the heat yet.

Heat would likely release it - but "why are you this deep into this lantern?"  If the pricker was working and not leaking past the packing, you're good to burn...

EDIT: it's not threaded inside.

If it was working I would just ease that nut back on and hope the packing was not disturbed. Clean up the outside with some steel wool and you are good to go.

It was working. I just wanted to do the vinegar soak and polish it up nice. I guess I could still do all that with it like it is. Anyone know if that washer looking thing in the photo is a metal washer, or is that packing?

I see a packing on the middle of that shaft.

That is a brass retaining ring. That is called the tip cleaner assembly and as said, its really not serviceable. You can put the entire assembly in vinegar. With the collar on however, how much will you ever see?

put the retaining ring slightly back in and thread the nut a couple of threads on then soak it.
after you take it out, unscrew the nut, slide the retaining ring out and polish the stem of the lever including where it will be hidden under the ring and nut. then re-assemble the cleaning lever.
this will give you a nice and smooth turning cleaning lever when you tighten everything down.

don't forget to check for leakage before you complete re-assembling the lantern as you don't want a dripping source of hot fuel.

hope this helps

Jon, here's a diagram to help familiarize you with parts names.
It's from OCP's parts diagrams section, if you can't see it well enough here.
