I found this over the weekend. I think it's an AGM 267.  
The pump is missing but what's there doesn't look similar to any of the pictures I've seen. The generator also looks strange. Any advice for the inexperienced getting this thing to run again?

Further research shows this lantern needs preheating (with matches) and an external pump.

Neat looking lantern! AGM? Appears to have a Q99 generator or something similar so I would guess you are correct on the pre heat. Looks to be an older one. Any stress cracks in the fount?

I don't see any cracks or splits in the fount.

Well, if she'll hold pressure I'd bet it would run.
Just need to find the rest of your filler plug to pump it up... Wonder if a Coleman is the same?... Hopefully someone with older AGMs will chime in.. Neat lantern👍

These AGM 267/268 lanterns are from the mid 1920s and are Ready-Lites so pretty much the same as a Coleman Quick-Lite in function. The generator fitter is the same as a Coleman so it may have an AGM coil generator like a Q99 but it will also work with any Coleman Q type or an R55. I don't know if the filler/air cap is the same size as a Coleman but a Coleman air stem might fit. If not then a Schrader valve body can be threaded to fit and if you use a steel valve cap it will close off safely.  ::Neil::

Progress so far.

I've removed corrosion from 90% of the fount with 50/50 water vinegar mix and 0000 steel wool  Almost positive it won't shine but it still looks good. Some parts near the base are shiny. Did this to check for any visible cracks but I don't see anything.

I removed the generator and cleaned the tip with a sewing pin. It was completely clogged. I noticed the other end is packed with some thing but I have not removed it. Not sure how it will function since whatever is on the other side of the curl is probably trapped there. 

I have ordered a 1/8" npt pipe tap and matching schrader valve to install in the cap. I need to get this done to pressure test the fount.

Does anyone know how do get the frame off? After removing the generator I also removed the bolt below it against the frame. I am guessing the burner fa tube needs to be removed next but not sure how to do it. The collar won't move. I think it's fastened to the frame. Pipe wrench? 🙁

I have soaked all the threads with kroil.

Any suggestions?
