Got this yesterday in trade for fixin' a friend's father's 220:

[50301237128_bf8022f728_b]

Everything seems to work just fine. I think I'll toss out those crappy mantles, put in a new cap gasket and fire 'er up with the fuel that's in 'er!

The pump is interesting. I might just have to pull it out to see how it works.

The globe has no markings of any kind. Would that be original?

Ironic that it's made by Rinnai, as I spend half my time at work being a slave to our Rinnai water heaters. I hope this works better!

That's a cool one Timm. Is the pump built like a Thermos? Definitely looks different.

I haven't really had time to look at it. The pump has two knobs. The inner knob seems to lock down the air stem, if that's what it has. I'll be pulling the pump out this PM just to see how that all works, but it feels fine and builds pressure.

Not sure if the pick up has a screen in it but if it does consider not installing it. Assuming the fount is nice and clean

That would interesting. I looked on Dr. Marsh's site and he has one similar, but a different color. These seem to have been made in the mid-sixties, so little newer than most of my collection.

I forgot to mention that this lantern is in excellent condition! The vent is perfect and the paint is about 99%. The front decal is the most beat part on it.

Congratulations Timm, sounds like a great trade. I've always loved the more angular look of these, but I've never encountered one in person. 
I cant wait to hear about the pump. Also, are the frame uprights stamped tapers? I love the thicker uprights as apposed to flat or round stock. Its the small things that stand out

Yep, Mike. The uprights are channels, tapered to the side. Hadn't noticed that until you mentioned it.

A couple more pics:

 I like the hammer-tone finish. I wonder what that EKW sticker is for?

Here's the pump stem:

[50302449741_e29d7b056f_b]

I need to take it apart. Seems the air stem is only attached to the inner (B) knob. That cup is tiny and really crammed into the tiny pump tube.

According to the decal that's a stove not a lantern.... At least you have a positive shut off on the pump..I did not think that when I first seen it. Does the pump cup look to be the size of an early 427?

If I recall correctly, I believe I found out that EKW 9516-A was the Monkey Wards model number?

I think it is a nice looking lantern and well built, with the tapered, channeled burner frame, mine isn't nearly as good looking as yours. Score! 

I think I recall the valve being similar to the AGM instant light valve with the spring loaded poppet to turn off the air circuit once fully open.

That pump design in pretty nifty, but kind of a PITA to use, the tiny pump cup along with the strange lock-out mechanism makes it hard to get up to a good pressure and mine always seemed to be a little on the dim side.

Man, I'm having a hell of a time with this open.

First of all, something is going on with my camera, computer, or maybe card reader. I can't get pics to DL to my computer at all. Sucks as this has been an interesting fettle so far.

Two, that damned generator. The pricker is AGM style, with the notch. I can't seem to get the gen installed without crimping the pricker wire. I'm letting it cool before taking it out and straightening the wire for the third time. I can't find any screen in it, but there are two stakings about 3/4 of the way up the gen tube--no idea why. The packing looks brand new.

This lantern is metric! You'll need an 8, 10, 12 and 14mm end wrench to take one down. The burner assembly has to come out to get the frame off, which is a bit of a fiddle. The valve has almost pure AGM genetics, but metric. Poppet valve for the lighting circuit. I didn't check, but the valve bung threads look like 1/8" NPT.

The pick-up tube had a screen on it, which made it very difficult to get out of the tiny fount bung. Screen has been round-filed.

The globe has cut and ground ends, unlike the fire-polished ones on a Coleman. Absolutely no markings. Original?

The fount was full of kerosene! It looks like someone filled it up, fireballed it, and gave up. The burner and frame were sooty as all get-out, but no soot on the vent or globe. At least they took those off before using the wrong fuel! From the amount of soot around one of the lighting holes, they tried using a Tiki torch to pre-heat.

Back to straightening the pricker wire... hopefully it don't break. I'm annealing it beforehand, which might help.

If I remember correctly you have to short stroke those when pumping them up to prevent bashing the threads on the air stem and check valve. The air stem has to be unscrewed all the way to to release the pump plunger. Same deal on the stoves. E.

Seems like you're having the same luck with this Rinnai as the those tankless heaters that you are used too, steadfast, and you will get it dialed in as well.

Metric?  Japan?  Who woulda thunk?

I would like to get an AGM Hawthorn (and maybe a Thermos) lantern for my stable...one day.

Timm, I've the some one like you.
I auctioned an "old Coleman" lantern 20 years ago and the Rinnai showed up (I was a beginner at that time and had no idea what model I was looking at).
I've completely restored and repainted it since it was quite rusty. Looks almost perfect now but I haven't tested it yet.
I discussed the functionality of the pump when sitting with Terry but (at least) I still don't know what the function of the sleeve on the pump shaft means.
We read the instructions as shown on your label but no idea yet....
