Just wanted to drop a note of thanks to all the moderators, experts, and posters here for the advice, how-to's, and detailed info ya get here and nowhere else.

I bought 3 old Coleman's online sight unseen in an auctionfor just 50 bucks on a whim... And I've never even lit one in my life. Mind you, I'm a farm boy from the sticks of Delmarva and was pretty familiar with wick burners... But little pressurized vessels fuel of fuel was a new one for me.

Snagged a few mantles and went to town getting em fired up. Had to really play with the 275, and still am not getting that searing white outta the 252A, but all in all I can't complain.

Reading everyone info info here got me everything I needed to take em apart, lube the pumps, clear out the spider webs, mud dobbers, gunky founts, and get em back to working order.  Now I'm hooked!!

Welcome form suburban Chicago. It is an affliction! I've solved many issues by reading past posts and have resurrected many.  It is a great forum.

Welcome from Huntington Beach! What a great start. I’m a new member here too and thanks to all of the other members & info, I’ve been able to tune up and rebuild my gear. I’d start by lubing up the pumps and making sure the pump cup is in good shape. For me, they all needed a little oil from sitting around. Have fun and enjoy the light!

Absolutely!! The wife used to complain about my old Dietz's cluttering up my corner of the living room under the deer heads... 😁 Now I'll really give her something to throw rocks at!  Maybe I'll make her a shelf too. She can show off her collection of overpriced Dyson blow jobbers to the ladies auxillary that way! 🤣

That's a nice start. For the mil-spec, check to see if one of the air tubes has a plug inside of it. Some of them run a lot better if that plug is removed. You can also play with the generator a bit too. Look to see how far the generator goes into the hole in the mixing chamber and you can adjust it in or out to change the way it burns. If the generator is too deep in the mixing chamber it will disrupt air flow and cause it to burn yellow.

Thanks Rob! I'll have to do some exploratory surgery on her and see what's amiss.
