Since I'm a sucker for $10 200'As I recently got a 10-58 in decent shape. An attempt to naked burn after a good pre-heat produced a good-sized yellow flame. Adjusting the cleaning lever had no effect on the flame. Plus, when I pressurize the fount and open the valve there's a good steady stream of fuel, and there's even some fuel going out the tip with the cleaning lever up. The gen looks like the lantern was burned just a couple of times. Anyway, I naked burned the lantern with a known good gen and it burned fine. It's gotta be an oversize gen tip from the factory. I did some searching on this topic and as a last resort I'll try to peen the orifice smaller. I have some 220 gen tips, but isn't the orifice smaller on those, in other words too small for a 200A pricker?

220 gas tips are one size larger .008 vs .007 I believe. Try the known good tip on the generator over burning.. I had a 502 gen that no matter what I did orfice size would flood... I figured it was a bad seal where the tip met the gen body...

"and there's even some fuel going out the tip with the cleaning lever up."

What makes you think that a pricker wire normally makes a positive fuel shutoff?

I didn't think the wire would completely shut off the fuel. I was surprised when there was still a steady stream of fuel with the cleaning lever all the way up.

Well, I put on a used gen tip that was stamped "V" like the one giving me problems. Lantern now burns like it should.

A V tip should be for a 220... I believe the 200 uses a 6 stamped tip... As long as it's burning good is all that matters. Ã°Å¸ËœÂ

My guess is your gen tip was loose...or over sized in the first place. Maybe?
