Wow. Lots of dust!
Got the computer to load a couple pics after deleting some files. (That may have done the trick?)

This one was Dads. Tried showing it in better detail yesterday, but got into a sizing challenge and shrunk it to much. I'm learning though. Slowly.
That's his red painting on the vent rim and fount.
And the silver on the frame. I knocked most of the silver paint off as it was flaking.
Had about 3/4 of a globe, with foil over the missing area. One flat spot ,and one etched/burned spot from a leaking mantle. 
Runs hot. Well HOT!.
I'll turn the burner tube in the couple last threads to shorten it up more , try yet another generator (maybe even a new one...) and if that don't do it fab a heat shield. Or just leave it alone and tinker on others , till I can't take it no more that it's not running superbly. Per me.
(Yes , I know they can run hot (!) and be fine.)
Running them tight in a wood box as a warmer ice fishing , this one would have to stay home.

As long as it's not overdriving the mantle I'd leave it be. Nice collection👍

I'll run it with a couple others to get a better idea of if it's haloing or something.
Seemed good watching it last time. Hard on the eyes as much as I kept checking it at night , (Awww.) but others running near it will give a visual attribute to go by.

Not always fair to compare performance of individuals when running lantern models side by side , but the used generator may be worn at the tips hole...It was supposed to be new as it was in a blister package (found open when going to remove the generator from the package) I grabbed out of the basement on an Easter egg hunt , but it might be out of a fifties 200A I'd changed out with a lot of hours on it but still reasonably clean. That nags me a little. Not enough to go find another generator just yet though!
The painted one that was on it was not performing well. Maybe a heat not transferring through it well at start up thing...Or unleaded fuel tried before maybe. I put it back in the package after removing the other used one. L.o.l.. Hope I at least cleaned it first.

I usually let them warm up good for a couple minutes then use my hat bill to cover up just the mantle when looking, that way your not blinded...I could just walk over and get some torch glasses.... But would take some effort ðŸ˜

I'll try that  thanks.(!)
(Not the goggles though. I'd forget to take them off probably...).
