Anyone know what the first month was for the 242B?

I picked up a 1/36 with all the signs of being a B:

Fuel/air tube
Positive shut off pump
No oil hole in pump cap
English only instructions
3000 mixing chamber

but it has the smaller Bakelite valve wheel.

From the pieces on my self I have 4 all pre 1939 with the large Canadian valve wheel so I would say 1940

For a Canadian 242B it appears to be about the 8th or 9th month of 1936. The US made one is also 1936, but I don't know even the approximate month.

It think it would be earlier than that. I have one from 6/36 with an unmarked collar. Haven't seen any B's before that...until now. Possibly someone switched over a 247.

Like they say, never say never with Coleman Canada.
I have two 4/36 242's which I thought may be 242B's but they have some 242A parts, both have unmarked collars, though. Pretty sure they are late 242A's.
I think a 1/36 Canadian would still be a 242A, with some later parts.

the 242B could be seen here on the March 1936 catalogue (Canada)
with 242A parts only
this was a transition year for this model

Coleman Canada would use up all remaining parts,


in my opinion your lantern is still a 242A

keep in mind the late 242A model was exactly the same as the early B

Keith that is a fantastic post
:-)

the 1935 models are 242A models
and the early 1936 models may still be 242A models
If im correct ,the 242B was only Introduced in the fall catalogue of 1936
basically ,they are the same
The B only started changing in 1937 (collar only)
Agostino




Correction 242B - introduced early 1936
( march 1936 catalogue)

Thanks Ago. I haven't checked into the forum for a while. I will call it a late A.

from back to front here's what i've got.

8/36
D/38
C/41
6/51
2/48
A/?

There is a year on the seafoam but would have to take some paint off to see it. All of my collars have the three languages on them. (Accept the 8/36 is blank) And the 6/51 has the stamp under the valve wheel instead of the filler cap. Not sure what year that started. And I also have another C/41 that in my garage that needs some work. IMG_0016.JPG  IMG_0018.JPG  IMG_0017.JPG

I have come across a R/46 242B painted green over brass. What does the R stand for? February?

If it’s Canadian likely the R is actually a B. It would stand for the 2nd quarter. April, May, June.
