I did an O ring change last year on this lantern. Fired it up last night and it burning dirtier than usual, and run time is short again. Going to break it down agin and look for the problem. Possibly Pilot error on the rebuild? Thanks Paul

Were non-fuel resistant orings used instead of fuel resistant ones?

Duane,
I used the o rings that I had from OCP. But now I wonder if I mixed them up with Orings I had from somewhere else😮

If they were blue o-rings, chances are you had the right ones.  

When you say “dirty burn” what exactly do you mean?  Does it flicker or pulse?  Or is it making a strange noise?  Have you checked for any obstructions in the air tube?

Chuck,
I did a quick rebuild with a new #20 mantle. It burns bright now and clean. I'm only getting 15 minutes before I have to pump it up again. I have to get back into the valve, or FA tube. Great lantern just wish I had a new valve assembly or genny

The 229 has an exceptional short burn time without more pumping.

It is the nature of the beast - with the fat generator.

It could just be the genny orifice causing them problem, although 15 minutes seems about half the usual time.  How much fuel was in it?  Half a tank full and pumping immediately after getting going usually lasts me 25-30 before adding more pressure.

The original genny burned for much longer. When I replaced it I noticed the short run time. Probably had a 222 gen in I was originally!
