Stripped down the little 222 last night as it was not behaving.
didn't find anything wrong with it but it fired up first match this evening.
only problem is the out of the packet holey mantle... or maybe I was a bit rough burning it in😁

Nice 222 there. I've also had mantles burn-in with holes.

Cheers guys
No! I didn't change the O rings. I inspected them and they seemed fine although they are older than me and have worn out bits haha.
There were no cracks and nothing broke off when I rubbed the O rings between my fingers.
What material do we think the blue O rings are made of? surely I can replace with some neoprene or EPDM ones from my assortment.

I had the lantern running again tonight so I could go out and feed the lambs. It was hard to light again and was a bit flickery. A few turns to clean sorted it out so it must be getting clogged up with something

Here's the link for o-rings from OCP. I've tried using other o-rings from an assortment and had fuel leaks and/or fire. I found that the exact size and material of the o-rings is critical. Now, I only use the Coleman specified replacements from OCP. I know you're in New Zealand, but it the long run, it may be worth getting the correct (OCP) o-rings shipped to you.

The coleman 'O' rings are normally made of Fluorosilicone or Viton.

Were the ones in there Blue?

Naptha/white fuel/Coleman fuel, is pretty hard on normal type 'O' rings.

The 222 is a great lantern, that seems to have come out of the (now defunct)Toronto Coleman factory.

The early use of 'O'rings in these lanterns, endowed them with all sorts of long term service problems.
Subsequently, there were ongoing changes made in the valve assembly by Coleman to address the safety issues - leaking valves.

There was a great thread posted in the early part of the last decade with many great photos listing the valve variations and 'O'-ring sizes.
I couldn't find it....
But I found another well documented one about the 621B

My old Scout group had several  USA made 222Bs(1995 mfg), and they all eventually developed valve/'O'-ring problems.
I alway assemble 'O'rings with 'O'-ring lube, this reduces the risk of the minute 'O'-ring being pinched during assembly.

By the way, the original 222s are the most efficient of the camp lantern series, subsequent models; 226 and 229 appear to have larger jets and require much more frequent pumping during operation, and have a shorter run time.
The first Canadian production 222 models call for a #21 mantle, later Coleman USA changed it to #20 when it became available.

Please Note, Coleman Toronto factory was dismantled and closed, when Canada and USA first signed NAFTA.

Thanks Thomas
There are some great facts there
It did have the blue O rings in it. they are nearly 40 years old though. i'll hunt some new ones down. cheers for telling me what they are made of. there's an O ring supplier in wellington that we get special medical gas o rings from. if I can't find an NZ Coleman supplier ill try them
