Dumb question, but how do you remove a spark igniter from a lantern if it's too big to pass through the hole in the frame?  I've searched the forums and haven't found an answer.

I removed the retaining screw in the knurled nut at the end of the shaft thinking that would let me remove the nut, but it doesn't want to budge!  Just want to make sure I'm on the right track before I start applying heat or penetrating oil.

You're on the right track. It's just the little set screw that mechanically holds the knob to the shaft. In your case a little extra corrosion has probably set in there as well.

Thanks for the quick responses!  The Kroil did it after a few minutes soaking but the nut was on there surprisingly tight.

Kroil, Another miracle of modern chemistry.  I use that as cologne, that is when I’m not using Hoppe’s #9.

As a kid we've used Hoppes #9 to remove skunk spray, seemed to work fiddy years ago.

LOL, Rob.  Me, too!!  Must be an NC thing.

There used to be a company n Phoenix that made Hoppe's #9 aftershave.  I don't think they make it anymore.

Here is a link to some #9 air fresheners that you can buy: https://www.amazon.com/Hoppes-No-Air-Freshener-Pack/dp/B01AYEJK1Q
