I recently acquired a 6/63 Coleman 200A lantern in excellent condition on the outside. With a new cap gasket it holds pressure. It was a bit clogged in the generator and fuel pickup, but after disassembly and cleaning it starts and runs. My question has to do with the fuel valve. It shuts off perfectly but when opening it up there is no “stop”. My other 200, a 4/52 opens up about 3 1/4 turns and stops, but this one keeps spinning. Thoughts?

cant tell what all yours might be missing with out taking it out and having a look see , but its an easy fix . most likely a brass ring and a C wire keeper .

Found the pic of the valve on Mike’s single mantle rebuild. A PO for some reason moved the circlip in front of the groove on the valve up against the threads. It was not easy to spread and move it back to the groove, but I managed to do it without dropping it into the black hole of my garage floor. Now it opens 4 turns and stops. Still lights and runs.
