It's a lazy, warm, wet afternoon here in North Carolina so I decided to try a first light up of my 1932 220B lantern.  The valve was a bit sticky, and I needed to give the tip cleaner quite a few turns to get things cleared up, but once the old gal got started she ran like a champ.

Several may recognize this as the lantern I was trying to sell here on the forum last month...when there were no takers I decided to keep it.  Now that the lantern is a "really useful lantern", it is destined to be a part of my keeper collection.

In addition to correcting a couple of parts I upgraded the vent to a better one I had.  I've got a correct early style Pyrex globe in route to me, so all I need now is a correct fuel cap.

Anyone here on the forum that can help with a smooth sided winged fuel cap?...I'd be happy to pay full market price if someone can help me out.

Very nice! If I saw it for sale I would have scoffed it up. Looks like she is running good.

I might have one Cliff. I'll take a look.
did your lantern have the brimmed vent originally? Mine has the brimless vent, same year I think.

Thank you Dan...I appreciate you looking for me...if you find a spare smooth sided winged fuel cap shoot me a PM.

Regarding your comment about the brimmed vent the question is a good one...according to the ICCC book this date might more accurately have a brimless vent...in the case of my lantern that would mean not only a change out of the vent but also the bail to a narrower version...possible of course because my bail is held on with cotter pins.  I've decided to leave it as-is since close to transition time and until I learn something more definitive.

Looks great Cliff! Those B’s are great runners. I like the bails being held on with the cotter pins. Makes it easier to clean up the burner cage and the bail, imo. Anyway, I hope you find a filler cap you’re happy with and stay dry. Their saying more rain later this week for us NC folks.

I think that was changed already.
