Just want to confirm before ordering, that the 234 uses the same generator as a 201 lantern?  Also, is there anything special to use to fill the pre-heat cup, or just take the top off and use a small funnel to reach down to it. Do you fill the cup with kerosene too, or some other type of fuel such as denatured alcohol?

Just tying to figure out what all I need to order up front.

kero will make a sooty mess using it preheat , use denatured alcohol it burns clean  . or a propane torch :-)

Same gen as 201, Coleman had a little can with a s shaped tube for filling the cup with alcohol, through the larger hole in the base plate. Now, there is a plastic bottle for that purpose. Amish shops sell them, or on line.

Like the Dr. says, use alcohol. Put it in the cup with one of these so you don't have to take off the vent and globe:

And yes, that generator will work on a 234.

I skip the pre heat cup and use a small blow torch to pre-heat the generator.  It seems to work better for me.

Thanks everyone for the responses. One more thing I forgot to ask. What is the correct check valve for the 234?

The original part number for a 234 is 216-538.  I think it is the same as early 220's.  Mike at OCP has them for sale.

This begs the question - does anyone have a chart that lists check-valves by Model #?

I purchased a 200A a month or so ago and had the same generator  as per your description and had to get a pliers to pull out the pricker it from the gen. First one I came on with that feature

you can go off on a tangent just collecting all the different spirit cans, or "Automatic Cans" as the Swedish called them.
Originally it was methyl alcohol (Methylated spirits)  they used ("Meths" as the British say).
