Picked up a Sears Junior yesterday without a chimney. Was wondering what size Coleman chimney will fit it. 242/243?
Cheers

depends what model sears junior it is. early ones will take a Coleman 200 globe. The later ones with the struts coming up through the vent will not. They used a mica chimney or a MacBeth globe. And some frames won't even accept that. You need a straight globe.
You could check my post on preways in the restored section. I posted a picture of all of the single mantle ones.

I bought a straight Pyrex globe for mine with the frame and ring.

A straight mica will work on all the Jr.'s, 242's, 243's, 200's, 201's, 202's, many AGM and Kamplite singles, Optimus 930's, etc. Cant' say that about the small bulge globes.

That's the later one.  Certainly no newer than 1941 as i'm told they stopped lantern production for the war and never re-started.  Is the top ring with the anti rattle springs still on it?  if so you need the straight or at best, an original small bulge globe. (rare)

Preway model L47PM with mica and L47PH with glass. Listed in 1940 as the Preway New Junior Lantern. The ilustration appears to show it with a straight glass globe. ::Neil::

Thanks for that Neil.  So unless Sears required a (slight) bulge globe, my straight Pyrex globe is technically correct (other than no markings)  on my Sears Jr.!

It's correct as per fit but not "technically" correct because the original glass was a MacBeth bulge globe with a lighting hole. Or a straight mica chimney. This is the first I've seen the L-47 advertised with a mica chimney, although it was standard on the earlier models.
The L47 frame has an anti-rattle spring. That is the only one. I think that was intended to keep the globe from shattering.
