I’m in the process of taking this lantern apart and cleaning it up. I hit a roadblock and looking for some advice. Hopefully I did not screw myself too bad. I have soaked  the part in kroil oil for about six hours and while putting some pressure on the part I bent it. 

so my questions are what is the best approach for disassembly at this point?
is the part available? Also is there a parts list available somewhere I could download? 

Thank you. 4A85A685-6095-4DE9-A9DB-EA44195581F0.jpeg

Ooof! Sorry for your luck!
Follow this guide for disassembly.

You got way off course at figure 9 and 10. As far as that part goes you may be able to salvage it once off the lantern by heating it cherry red and quenching it in water. This anneals brass(it hardens steel and this confuses a lot of folks) if you can get the threaded piece of the eccentric to thread in without buggering the threads it may straighten it out. However it is most likely not going to work out like that because of the female threads. Fortunately that is a very common piece and is the same as the same series Coleman 220/228.

Rustytank,
Thanks for the feedback. Good information here, I appreciate it greatly.  Going to call it quits tonight. Soaking it in Kroil oil overnight.
hopefully it will yield better results tomorrow.


I’ll keep you posted👍

I picked up the 3/8 drive sockets that are cut for this part and the fuel valves when I got started in this 10 years ago. They have been a real help over the years on the stubborn ones like this. I think I got them on E Bay.  Just something to look into.

The trick is not to take apart anything screwed into that brass fitting. Not even the generator. Then come from the side with a 10-12” adjustable wrench with the handle of the wrench clamped in a vice and turn the fount. Works great and damages nothing.

Hi David.  If you look up a Ford wrench ( or bicycle wrench ) that is a great tool to have for this application. My brother and i have one, and taking out the e-block housing is a breeze. Make sure it has a smooth jaw. I bought a 10'' one for around 15$.

Yep it’s a common part to find. I did that myself once and I can’t remember if I was able to salvage it or not. Now just to be safe I screw an old cut off tip cleaner from a donor lantern in there to make sure I don’t bend anything up.

Thanks for the feedback guys. You have all been very helpful, very much appreciated. Looks like if I continue down this path I’m going to need a set of Mike’s tools. Here is an update of my progress. I had to heat the valve to remove it from the fount. I’m assuming I will need to replace the generator. It was pretty I’m assuming I will need to replace the generator. It was Full of heavy carbon. I’m going to try to stick it in my ultrasonic cleaner and see what happens.

I think that generally older generators can be cleaned. Be aware that the older coleman generators have a small piece of wire mesh in them that needs to be removed and accounted for when reassembling to prevent possibly damaging the pricker wire. There are different methods of cleaning the inside of the generator tube depending on what one has available.

From the looks of it, you'll be needing a valve as well. The pricker assembly broke off in the valve.

Uvarmint,
Haha! Glad to see I’m not the only one. When I did it felt like a total rookie.

Hippie approved! A rubber strap-wrench on the bottom rim of the fount makes this even easier, and you don't risk denting the fount sides with your hands--I've done that and have the t-shirt.
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.
