Good morning folks!

I was tearing down my Canadian 242b from my last purchase and found some interesting 🧐 stuff, a straight pick up fuel tube, also a ceramic burner. Lantern is dated B/42 I don’t know if this was a 247 or no, generator has a coil only no packing.  

I wonder what could happened here, a mix of bunch of parts? Who knows 🤷‍♂️, now looks like I need a 247 collar 😂 

here are some photographs

Straight PU  seems Kero - not sure about the spring in the genny that is usually associated with stove gennys, that is odd.  Maybe a 242K?

How much in the frame and fount is brass vs. steel?  Canada was in the war way sooner than the US.

Don't think there would be any packing with the spring.  Is the pu soldered in?  Early 247?  Have to look at my early 247, it has the wheel.

I think it just has the wrong collar. Everything there says KERO to me!

Interesting thread!!  I think that is exactly what a 201 generator looks like.

I don't know if I've seen a 1942 247. It could be a 249.

Not a 249 more than likely a247 with the wrong collar. It is the easiest part to misfit to the incorrect lantern when working on more than one at a time.

Definitely an oddity. One other thing I find interesting about that one...the brass mounting stud is removable.

Just out of curiosity, any sign of fuel in the fount? Can you tell if it was run on gas or kero? It had to have been preheated for lighting without a true F/A tube assembly. Definitely not instant lighting like the collar states, more like instant flaming!! 😬

It’s a little later than yours, but this is a pic of the valve assembly from my 6-‘48 Canadian 247 Scout. Stud is part of the valve casting.

Okay guys, had to take all the valves out again. Well, 242k is still in workbench and probably going to make a new post in tech sub forum for more questions regarding cleaning valve wheel. 


 is a picture with all kero valves, middle valve is the one it came in my 242b (B/42). Notice the valve came in my 247 scout has a solid mounting frame stud not like the others that can be removed.

Here are bigger pictures 

Look at the 247 valve, the pick up time has a straight cut not diagonal like the others

Usually reference to a story plot (books movies etc.), and when it gets complicated and takes odd twists and turns,  its said to Thicken" - I'm sure there is a corollary for the actual source for using the word "thicken"  but it is common English/American vernacular term.
