Here is the lamp I've put back together.  I'm not sure if it's all original but I'm guessing it's a 118A.  Feel free to correct me. 
Unfortunately, the finish was too far gone so I took it down to metal.  I'm still deciding if I'm going to try to refinish it or just polish it.

My primary concern is the space between the burner cap and the valve wheel. (It's only 3 1/4 inches) As I browsed around looking at pictures online, what I am seeing seems to have a greater distance. 

The air tube seems to be original, but to me the top section seems a little short. 
Do you think it looks too short?

I'm very new at this and it looked a little odd so I just thought I'd have some expert eyes take a look.

I just went and measured my 118A. Mine measures 3 1/16" to the top of the valve wheel. I think that your in the right ballpark.

Interesting, yours has 5/16" more distance between the end of the burner and the wheel. 
I might add an air tube to my next order from Mike.  Seems like mine has be compressed some how.

Thanks for the info,
Marc

I’m not sure there is anything wrong with yours or @rob_pontius lamps. If your fount wasn’t dated I was going to assume it was a later lamp. But I’m assuming it’s dated October 1928 from your resto thread. @Terry_Marsh was gathering info on these a couple of months back. I can’t find a date on mine and the bottom is stamped differently. Perhaps there is an article forthcoming in a future Coleman Light? Yours has a slant style fuel pick up so I’m assuming my dating is accurate but I’m a newbie to lamps too. A ton of changes were happening in the late twenties with I believe slant production overlapping A and maybe B lamps. I have a couple of USA made 118A I can compare later.
Here is a pic of the bottom of my fount.
