I have a model 220K from 1981 I've been using as my "learning lantern."

When I got it the pump didn't work, the generator was burnt out, and the fuel valve leaked. I replaced the generator (after trying to rebuild the existing one), repacked the fuel valve, resurrected the pump, and pulled it all apart to clean it up. 

It still won't fire.

I pulled the fuel mixer apart to check if the baffles where the mantles attach were clogged, and they are completely clear. 

What am I missing? Is it the check valve? I thought it was fine, but that's the only thing I can think of at this point.

"It still won't fire."

First question, did it run when you got it? Second, what parts specifically what parts did you work on? Third, what trouble shooting procedures have you gone thru to identify the issue?

Thanks for the troubleshooting thread, Toby! It was flooded, so I let it dry out and it works! I threw some cheap mantles on and burnt them in and let it go on my patio for about 15 minutes. I got this shot right as the mantle on the left was burning a hole through it. Click image for larger version - Name: 20200823_180027_copy_756x1008.jpg, Views: 28, Size: 146.99 KB
