I have Carefully Fettled.  Everything is spotless and clean ( I think ) 139 lamp and it suggests a T44G for White gas and T44K for kero.  What are the differences> orifice size or packing or both.I did not read the tip when I had it out for cleaning for an ID but to get it nice and bright It needs to be pumped ridiculously hard. If it was a "K" would it take more pressure to  to get to max bright????

G = gas
K = kero
Kero would have a smaller orifice.

I needed my extra powerful 325 glasses to even see the pricker wire so maybe it was a "K".   I saw a cool chart with all the tip sizes and markings  and gen uses. Is it in the archives here. I have not looked yet and will later.

The kero genny wouldn't need lots of pressure unless you had gas in the fount, kero needs less of a spray to be able to vaporize and burn.  Learned all this from forums and others comments along with personal experience with my kero lanterns.

The chart is exactly what I was thinking of and states the G and K have the same "V" size orifice/tip at .008 so We are good to go.  I suspect it would run nice with an Amish mix and preheat.  
Thanks
