I’ve been looking for a 237 lantern for awhile and haven’t found any in the wild, until yesterday.  Found this at a local flea market, complete with a late model globe that I broke while trying to get the bail off the first time.  The bail ends were tweaked a bit and were jammed in the frame holes.  Put on a red letter 220 pyrex to test run it.  Only needed a mantle and a filler cap gasket, and a slight straightening on the bail ends.  Ended up paying a collector’s price for it, the guy had 80 on it, we settled on 60, but now I have one.  Chinese globe and Peerless 111 mantles on the way from OCP.  Now I’m searching for the right globe, since this is Nov of 58, I’m guessing it’s a red sunrise (late 58) or maybe a green sunrise (early 58).

After researching the iccc globe page it looks like I’m in search of a green stamped sunrise, anyone have one of those that they can part with?

•1946-1958: Green stamped sunshine logo over “Coleman” on the front with “PYREX” over “MADE IN U.S.A.” on the back.
These globes originally came with a “MADE IN U.S.A.” circular sticker.

This 237 had an over fueling problem when I test ran it with a full fount of k1.  First thing I thought of is the prior owner had converted it to cf and I had the wrong gen tip.  Ordered a new gen from ocp, but in the meantime I searched for 237 soot and over fueling problems and hit on a thread that talked about mud in the mixing chamber.  Started thinking about that and pulled the burner, low and behold this is what I found.

Glad you thought to pull it apart and check.  It's a good looking 237.

Looking for 6-56 and 6-58 Birthday lanterns.
There's been an alarming increase in the number of things I know nothing about.

After getting the mud dauber’s nest out of the airway and giving everything a good brushing out I still had some serious over flame.  I could run it with the pricker part way up, but anything other than that would start sooting and overdrive the mantle.  I found an old 220 gen tube with no guts, but with a clean tip in my parts bin and swapped the tip on the 237 gen and fired her up.  Problem solved, now I can save that new gen I ordered from Cigar Mike for the next rebuild in 60 years.
