Does anyone have a good picture and/or the dimensions of the flat capture nut?  I want to see if I can have a replacement made.

Thanx

Thanx Darren.  If I could get the dimensions that would be great.  I'm going to see if Dean can make me one.
Thanx

You know what?  Aaron might be better to make this nut.  He's made similar ones for
early 242 captive ball nuts.  I didn't know what it was when you first wrote me, Chris.
I can make it, but if Aaron already has experience, and maybe a setup for doing it,
he will be a better choice to do this work.

I'll send you a PM, Chris.

Looks like about a 7/8" radius on that captured nut. (on top) With a slight flat on the top. Someone here (Aaron?)  makes the tube for attaching the vent pieces on a quicklite. This piece would have that plus the nut turned on one end. Then flared on the inside. Without cracking the porcelain. Probably easier than flaring the fitting on a 242 vent, which is flared directly on the porcelain.

I imagine a Holdridge radius cradle would do a decent job of it, Not sure how you would match the knurling, what I can see of it on my lantern, it does not look like a standard diamond knurl, but it might have when it was new. Seems like all of the ones I have seen have heavy plier marks on the knurling. Probably from tightening it before burning the lantern.

I know this is an old thread, but was there ever a solution? I have the nut, but the rest of the parts are missing from the vent.

I found several solutions.  I fixed a couple of these now and it depends on which parts you have.  Post a picture of what you have and I'll show you what I did.

Pic1.jpg  Pic2.jpg  Pic3.jpg I have had a couple where the previous owner had cut them off like yours.  In order to get the capture nut to fit correctly, I found I could use the vent nut from a Northstar flat side up to act as the plate that was cut off.  Once it's put together no one can tell the difference.  If it had the plate still attached it's a lot more work but you can get them apart to attach them to your vent.  I did that on one vent as well.
Thanx

Thanks.... do you,  or anyone else , have pictures of what the missing parts look like?

Look at the photos from Darren, middle picture.  It's just a flat plate that's held on by a rolled crimp.  The problem with yours and mine is they cut it off above the plate.  There is nothing to connect one too.  I'll look to see if I have a picture of the one I had out of the the vent with the plate still attached.
Thanx

Coleman never got the vent nuts right. never. There is no allowance built in for heat expansion. I bet most vents were cracked the first time the lantern was used. Not a simple problem but the vent nut has to move with that expansion, not against it. Like a Primus lantern.
