Found this slant for sale on Marketplace. Only had one picture but I knew what it was. The vent was throwing me off and with only the one pic that didn’t show much I was kinda puzzled. Finally got my hands on it today, the lantern itself is in good shape. I bet with a new pump leather and lead washer it would fire as is. The vent is actually a homemade repair job. Someone cut out and welded in a piece of expanded metal. Needless to say I’ll be looking for a vent, but I’m really looking forward to working on it.

Looks like fun, I like repaired kinda stuff and might be tempted to leave the vent, aint another one like it!

Regular cap gasket or an Oring makes a good seal on that cap.

All that grime has probably done a great job of protecting what is underneath.

I am kinda thinking about reusing the vent. I’m a big fan of leaving it like you found it with the original parts if at all possible. If money were no object I’d think seriously about sending the vent off to be redone. Someone had a field day with the grinder on it haha though, it’s chewed up pretty bad.

Someone on one of the Coleman FB pages was wondering who snapped it up. I recognized the distinctive vent. Lol.

Well strike out #1 on the slant disassembly. Cannot get the burner assembly loose and it looks like someone at one point used red loctite on the threads. Several heat/penetrant cycles and it won’t budge.

UPDATE!

Big thanks to @Doug L for hooking me up with a nice mica and vent. I had just finished putting it back together last night and the vent and mica showed up in the mail today. 

I polished on the nickel as much as possible, I could tell it was getting thin in a few places so I decided that was good enough. I have to say I’m in love with this thing. I’ve always much preferred single mantle lanterns but this one changes things a bit. 

This slant does have a fiber valve wheel and it is an earlier one, if someone can confirm this was common on early slants it would be greatly appreciated. Here’s a few money shots! She fired right up and ran really strong and smooth.

Nice work!  Hard to see the valve wheel in your pictures but the very first picture appears to show the earlier ‘Reese’s cup’ style valve wheel.

Clean that fount "extremely" good or the next time you go to fire it, it won't. Very fussy lantern. Looks great! Nice job.

Great looking Slant. Just about perfect. 

I agree with above that you will want to drain and re-filter your fuel for the first 5 or 6 times you run it.

What is it about the slant design that makes them so susceptible to dirty fuel or a dirty fount?

Mainly, it's the extra filter within the valve assembly.  They can clog up pretty easily.

It's the same type of pickup mechanism as the more recent schrader valve lanterns. Passive FA system- the fuel hole is smaller than the gas jet at the generator. When cold, the fount pushes air along to make up the difference- so it's instant-lighting. When hot, the boiling fuel in the generator reduces the fuel demand enough to flood out the air tube. CF today is usually clean enough for that type of system to be OK. Back then, not so much- one tiny particle, or a spot of varnish, or plain old corrosion, etc. can cut off the fuel supply. 

There were three kinds of valve wheels on these. The earlier Reese's-cup wheel like this, the bakelite wheel like on a 242, and, on some of the early ones, an actual fiber wheel like on the older Quick-Lites.

Only two on the US models. Early Reese's cup and  the later Bakelite.

Will, What letter is stamped on the fiber knob? Does the valve stem have internal threads on the end to accommodate a T88 generator? Just curious.

Knob stamped G, and yes to the threads. I also have a 228 with a 227 vent with the same valve wheel, dated May '28, and have heard of one dated June.  Both lanterns also have splined pumps (as opposed to regular knurling), and I have no reason to believe either one is Canadian since every Canuck Slant I've seen was clearly marked as such.

Yes, it is. However, even most of that date have the Reese's wheels. I've got a 8_3 228 with a Reese's, regular vent, and knurled pump. I'd call these strange features being together a pattern, but two samples isn't enough to say so with any certainty, especially given the date differences.

In case you haven't figured out yet, I'm a fan of the Slants. Between the passive FA system and being the first lantern with a built-in tip cleaner, which on the early ones was operated by the same knob as the fuel flow (The REAL reason for the angled valve and generator!) they were ahead of their time. The unique look resulting from the experiment is a huge bonus.

Stamping on the fiber wheel and that valve stem match the 28 date. Another great example of Coleman transitioning with overlap to the newer models.  I will have to look into the splined pump knobs. The captive nut 227 vent isn’t common but has been known to be found on the early 228 slants, but I don’t believe or ever insisted that your lantern was a Canadian Model.

It would be interesting to look into what valve knobs were on irons of the same age; I noticed that the valve casting has a lot of similarity to an iron valve, and irons used the same tip cleaner (hence the iron generator mod to reproduce the T-88). I know no-one suggested mine was Canadian, but I have seen splined pump parts listed elsewhere as specific to Canadian lanterns.

The Model 3 Coleman iron was late 20's (27 I believe) and has a bakelite valve knob on it and a T-88 generator could be used on it also.
The Coleman 117,118, and 119 lamps used the same valves and valve knobs also. Starting in 1927
