Came across what looks to be a QL327 offering with what to me is an unusual generator...Anybody know history behind this "S" shaped generator?  I'm looking at purchasing this lantern for the unusual feature in spite of the rough nature of the lantern...would be a fun one to get back running...would like to understand more about this unusual generator if possible.

Cliff, I believe that is an Akron generator. Experts should be able to point you to which models.
Maybe 103?

That's interesting.  Looks like the Akron S (ess) generator adapted to a Coleman quicklite style nut.  I'd be curious to see how the length compares to an Akron.

someone must have added the nut n flared the end to make it make it fit a coleman . you will find all sorts of odd stuff working on old lanterns . its our job to recognize n get em back to original or not :-)

Thanks for the quick response guys...very interesting...I had no idea there was so much variation in generator styles during the match-light era...no doubt some companies trying to be competitive while working around patents.

BTW, Chuck, is that reference page you showed of the different generators in a book?...or is the reference something that is available?  I did not see anything like this in my Coleman history book, or maybe I just missed it?

It was compiled by Neil McRae and others in 2010 and posted in the Classic Pressure Lamps reference gallery.

Yep...lantern is a bit rough, but I thought about getting it for the unusual generator and as a practice piece for restoration...unless someone else here needs it more ;-)
