i cant get my lamp to light. i hear it hiss but no flames.i put a new generator and fresh fuel in it. is liquid fuel supposed to come out of the valve? and how do i get this thing apart to clean it up?

No fuel should leak from the valve. The design used in the Slant burner assembly demands that every thing be correct down around the valve, because it can continue to leak even with the valve shut off. So the seating of the valve, packing must all be test good before firing.  Inside the fount the pick up tube, and the early way it added some air for instant lighting is much different than all the later models and takes some care and cleaning. I suggest a complete take down of the lamp, pull the fuel feed tube out of the fount and carefully clean it up, also get the fount real clean as just a little derbies can foul the pick up. There are few guys here that are experts in this lamp and lantern that use the the slant generator, hopefully they will comment.

it seems if i shake the lamp while lighting it it will light. it runs for 30sec or so and dims. but if i shake it again it brightens up. problems getting fuel?

I looked at the diagrams. I have the dimple in the bottom of the fount. But I can't get the f/a and valve assembly off the handle to get to anything.

there was a thread about this procedure a while back, try this
- remove generater
- remove square head bolt from end of cast block assy
 - remove press/lock plate and valve assy
- put a large padded cressent wrench on the air tube assy and remove, you might need to get someone to hold the font
- remove collar above the handle, then handle
- in the top opening in the top of the font ther is a domed shaped fitting with a hole in the end, this is the fuel p/u tube assy, you need to lift it up, try a small needle nose pliers, carefully not to damage it, its probably TIGHT
- ONCE LOOSE WHEN ITS PART WAYS OUT IT WILL GET CAUGHT there is a bend in the tubes so wiggle it towards 90 degrees till you find the spot where it will lift out

there you go. keep us imformed on your progress
