     I just hauled these in this morning but I’m focusing on the kamplite. DB1F5F10-54C1-42C5-931C-7D9A24CF7B5C.jpeg

I know nothing about these lanterns so please drown me in knowledge. Also, how can I make the fuel cap play fair? It doesnt want to separate from its family.  

My friends don’t call me “Lantern/lampie Levi”
for nothin’,if they did call me that.

Looking for bday lanterns 8/38, 8/41, 
10/25, and 8/07

The biggest lie I tell myself is
”I don’t need to write that down, I’ll remember it.”

Search for a thread here titled it's stuck. Read through it. Post #26 is a good idea.

Hard crud? Soft crud? Shake some out and see if it sticks to a magnet. Probably just dried RUG..regular unleaded gas.

Yeah it was. I just used bbs and fresh gas to get it all out. Now I’m re assembling, and testing the pump to find out that it is impossible to pump. I sprayed carb cleaner down that hatchet and it didn’t help.

There's a lot info on the forum about Kamplite's. Use the search function or scroll through the Tech archive and I'll bet you can find more than you ever need to know. The Kamplite is a good lantern but some parts are hard to find. Mike does have some though at OCP.

Why is there never enough time to do it right but always enough time to do it over?

So are we talking about a problem with the pump?  The pumps on these are different than a Coleman pump. The air stem is not separate from the pump shaft like on a Coleman. Is the end threaded or does it have a notched end? (See pic).  90F98C11-AF0F-48BE-9FE6-914437A5B86A.jpeg

     I’ve had the pump out, but it’s very difficult to push the pump into the tube and it’s not pressurizing the tank.

As dirty as the fount was I bet the check valve or the little air tube at the end is clogged up good. As I have never worked on one of these type problems, I will let the experts advise you.

Probably, that’s why I better let the experts handle it. Of the 2 types of “air stems “ I showed the screw in type looks like a ball check valve but I’m not positive.

I've rebuilt both styles, and, IIRC, both are ball-check, hence the use of an air stop valve.

I was able to remove the CVs with my OCP CV tool.

It's tough to tell from Levi's photo, but I think that is an RLR-21B and not a RLR-21A, so the check valve should be removable.

The 'A' series had a round dished pump and the check velve soldered into the bottom of the pump tube. 

The 'B' series has the hex shaped pump and the check valve is slotted for removal.

The best way would be to invest in one of these. The best GPA money you can spend.

As mentioned above, a specific check valve tool is the best option. 

I have used a very large screwdriver and an adjustable wrench with some success in the past, but there is a good chance of damaging the check valve if you are not careful.

The pump is roached out in the photo below, but this is what your check valve should look like.

I don’t know. I can’t get my tool To screw into the CV in the kamplite  lantern and I can’t get the Kamplite pump to screw into a Coleman CV. The threads don’t look the same. Maybe I could get it tight enough to break it free but I’m not going to try.

The threaded rod for the tool will not work.  But if the tool prongs fit into the slot of the check valve it may work. Just be careful.  and I would recommend shooting a bunch of Blaster into the pump tube and letting it sit overnight before trying anything.
