I got my Quick light all back together I pressure checked it.. no leaks.  The Generator is an R55 .. its old and I cleaned it the best I knew how.  Before I got the burner tubes back on, I screwed the generator down and opened the valve to see if fuel flowed through it.  I kept getting a little puddle of CF at the tip of the Generator so I thought it was good.  But now im wondering if it is indeed clogged.  What should I see when testing the generator this way.. should fuel come rushing out.. or just puddling.?

You should have a fine stream of fuel coming out.  I assume you turned the picker on the R55 and you didn't get any more flow?

Also there are direction for lighting a quicklite under the info section.  You do not light them like a modern lantern.  (You have to have the fuel flow first).

Looks like I need a new R55 the cleaner wire just broke off when I turned it.. Also you say fine stream.. I never had that.. just a small puddle at the top.

Sounds like you found your clog issue, but I've had good success putting carberator cleaner through it first, dry it with a stream of "dustoff CO2"  then 3-6 minutes in the ultrasonic (in citric acid koolaid), and I usually get excellant flow.  Let me clarify that though, I put the generator in dissassembled for 3 minues, then take the tip out and do the body for another 3 minutes.
