Just got this 220 9-7 (July '29), added fuel and a new cap washer at first.  Was roller coasting I'll call it, not what I would call a surge.   Two slants now, got a 228 five years ago or more from 0-2 (February '30).  Dug out the fuel pick up, looked good, but soaked all those parts in hot vinegar for half an hour.  I've taken one of these apart already, may have been my first one or a lantern.  I was unable to unscrew the screen tip, so with my small torch, unsoldered the screen piece, ran a piece of pricker wire thru the pickup tube and blew thru it.  Runs like a banshee now, wow, super bright.  Mica is pretty nice as is the vent, needs a cutter pin added to replace a small screw and nut.
I know these older ones don't interest many, but something to do this morning after backpacking last night in the smoke.

I had a senior moment or more when starting to work on it, forgot what I did before, so read some of the threads here.  A couple times, still made no sense. The threads were really vague, so I dug in, taking the genny off, then the valve block came out.  The balance (cage, burner) weren't budging, so got the torch and Liquid Wrench out, didn't take long after that to unscrew the complete top then as a whole, using a wrench on the nut above the fount.  Pickup came right out after I poked a little, trying to recall all this stuff.  At least I still can drive my truck and find the grocery store.
Sold a few lanterns this summer to get my lantern count down a few and here I go getting more, having added that carburetored AGM a few weeks back.

I love seeing Slants in action. Does it say something that I have five 220s? 

And, these old ones interest more people than the modern 1983 and later models...

Duane said he was out hiking in the smoke. did not say what kind of smoke it was!

Lanterns are like tools. 
You can not have too many unless your wife says so!!

Gas is what you use for washing parts diesel is for making power!

Ya know, lots of different smoke now in Kalifornia.  No, just the burning woods type here.  Visibility is a mile I think.
Also from a thread I had read, a full fount helps, so don't know if that caused the roller coaster effect or my cleaning of the p/u tube.
I used a pair of the Phillipines mantles I had left.

Both of my slants are finicky runners until warmed up really good. They seem to slowly pulse between lean and just fine until the fount gets good and warm... I just figured it was nature of the beast.

These and a lantern or two have different p/u's than what most are used to seeing in other models.  It's been enlightening to work on these and many of the lamps I got from the recent Stricker Auction.

Agreed, a little nerve wracking if the F/A tube is stuck....

One lesson I learned working on one of these.... Don't use a torch to try and loosen the burner assembly from the font if there is any fuel in the font....lets just say flame thrower...

I emptied the fount, but still residual in there, no flame out the fitting the valve came off of.  Was careful where I pointed my torch.  Working on a Primus 96 a few weeks ago, I had emptied the kero out of the fount and the fuel cap was off as I was soldering around the bung, a couple flame bursts, hung onto my torch.  🙂

I've got a couple of each and in my not so humble opinion they're the fastest of the Instant lites  to get going because of that skinny generator.

I had read that if any issues, people needed a filled fount and lose the R55 genny, all I did was clean the p/u and filled the fount a little more.
I fired up my 228 and it was just as bright.

Thank you.
Working out that I moved my clothes rod over to the area under my lantern shelving, that way I can keep them all together and have room for a few more that I shouldn't be getting.  Trying to not get a first BB 200A.
