I posted yesterday about finding several irons and a bunch of overpriced lanterns. Well this was the reason I left the irons behind, for now atleast. Very clean, although faded paint, tilley r55. Everything except the guard seems to be there, including a working gauge, it even had pressure on it. Cleaning wire is broken off but orifice is open. It probably needs new seals, but I may use some blue loctite with the old seals and try and fire it up. Just to make sure it doesnt leak. I have another that is missing the burner and gauge, and the vaporizer was toast on. It will probably become a very large lantern fount.

Any advice on these big guys? I understand they dont need lots of pressure.

Those critters really throw a beam of heat! It's pretty narrow, so they are more of a personal heater than a room heater. Try it out before you frank it!

If you can find one, Tilley made a lantern head for those. It slips on like the heater burner head. I'm hoping to run across one some day myself! Should make a pretty dandy spotlight.
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.

The asbestos mantle looks pretty well intact.

I'd try to preserve that as much as possible.
Mine is far worse and still produces a heat ray that's very intense.

Folks that know these heaters told me that even a bad asbestos mantle was better than a new stainless fire mesh.

This one has the metal mesh mantle. I think it was the earlier version that used asbestos.

Timm, 
Don't worry this one is staying complete, I'll even make a new grate for it, you know when everything else slows down. It's another one I have that is basically just a fount, reflector and handle. Had debated about ordering the parts, but he replacements are expensive.

I'd love to come across one of those lantern heads, or any other tilley stuff, but they don't show up locally very often. Meaning I've never seen one in person here.

Just order a kit with the right washers and seals.  Skip the blue sealant.   Here's the lamp head Gunhippie was referring to.  Yes they made a great inspection light with the reflector.

Like he said. Get a seal kit, no sealant. No pliers to tighten things up.

Not sure who told you low pressure, I pump the crap out of mine AFTER it is lit and running. Lots of preheat. Lots.

Don’t they have a little pressure button that rises flush when the pressure is high enough?

Yes, I've got some Tilley parts, what do you need.  Probably even have a burner for it.  Don't think I have any of the onion style globes left though.  Do have some of the other style globes though.

Lots of pressure.  Zero to real low to start.  Preheat real good.

The guard can be bought from the bay UK.  Search Tilley if I recall.

Like all Tilleys it wants about the same pressure as a Coleman so about 30psi. They do have a pressure indicator which is supposed to show max pressure when the inner rod is flush with the outer but it is an unreliable gauge and often wildly inaccurate.

The lantern head made for heaters in the UK was the CH1 which is the black enamel type but in the US Thacker offered the table lamp burner head as a conversion. Both do the job fine although the CH1 protects the globe rather better. ::Neil::

Thanks for all the replies everyone. So everyone knows I plan to order the seals, the thread sealant was just to pressure test it. I want to make sure it's all good before ordering them, and I'm really impatient at times. 

As for the pressure, I swear I thought I read it was lower pressure. But I've been known to be wrong, once or twice before. That's why I asked here, knew I would get good advice.

I'll get this running and will definitely be on the lookout for the lantern head. The search never ends does it!

Thanks again
-Mike
