Maybe it was the globe? 
220E 001.jpg 
Before pic, a little dirty, the "incorrect" fuel cap stuck, fuel valve stuck and the usual.

The "globe" is home made, I think, held together with staples, which I hammered flat.

Overall not in bad shape at all.

It cleaned up nice, just one dent in the fount.  The fuel cap came off with the hose clamp and rubber trick,  the valve with the addition of a little heat.  Put the correct fuel cap on,  oiled up the pump leather and replaced the gen and she fired right up.

The vent is like new.

And one of it burning on my porch.  The mantels look funny because I decided to try the cheap Chinese mantels.  I won't make that mistake again.  But now I've got them so I'll use them for testers anyway.  The bags stay large so you have to tie them up on the tubes.  The  best way to burn them in seems to be by lighting the lantern, pre burning led to a LOT of holes, and they're still very fragile after.

Still it was fun getting her up and running.  Thanks for looking!

Thanks, I just ordered a new decal from OCP.  That'll finish her up right!

I like it Steve, if I threw all my lanterns (350 or more)  into a pile on the floor, a 220E would rise to the top! Maybe even my birthday, a 12-57.

It's just that I've got quite a few E's,  they are great runners and tough, and I'm stoked this one turned out so well.

Turned out nice and the metal globe is cool.  From here, it looks like the lantern is sitting on the edge of the fountain and it’s huge!  😁

Looks like a good burner. Oh the stories I’m  sure it could tell.

It was well lit and hanging around one night when a duck walked into the bar .......

Large 10 cm red top "Butterfly" mantles on my dad's 11/55 220E. I shortened them up by attaching with loaf bread twist ties in the burner groove at the point where the mantle red turns to white. The mantles actually burn quite well when fitted to the lantern output.

That's the "stealth" fountain,
My wife saw it, really wanted it, but didn't think she could talk me into spending that much,  so she paid a little on it every week when she took the kids to school. 
For me, it just showed up one Saturday about 20 years ago.  I was doing yard work and a truck pulled up, three guys got out and started setting it up.
It's 6 feet tall and weighs a ton, but we have enjoyed it when the weather lets us sit on the porch.

Why not (get another 220E)? The fount looks pretty solid on it. I like the fountain too!

The "why did I buy it" comes from the fact that I've already got five or 6 220E's, not that this one isn't a cool lantern, cause it is.  I don't   know how many lanterns I've got but is over 200, many of them $5 lanterns bought just to get the globe and in really rough shape.  I'll have to post some pic's of the chaos.
