Working on my auction winnings and I want to use a early Akron lamp fount that has a tall riser and I don't have the correct burner.  I have this neat Kerosafe burner I want to thread on, but not sure it will work because it had some melted on lead on the female threads when I finally noticed what was going on.  I've melted and brushed off as much as I can, even using a couple different tools to clean the threads.  A Coleman burner will thread onto the tapered male threads of the Akron riser,  are the threads for Akron and Coleman the same?  Kinda gathered from one old thread that they are the same, but not sure.  It's hard to line up the heavy, awkward Kerosafe to see if I can get the threads to start, but dont want to mess up either thread end.  Maybe suggestions to clean threads better?

Worked on removing more lead then threaded the burner onto my AA fount and went on, so screwed it onto the Akron.  No air thru the Akrons valve, even with all parts removed.  Maybe some old solder is in there?  Plan B.

For future reference, that's a 1/8"-27 NPT thread. A tap and die are handy to have for cleaning up old threads.

Irrelevant now, can't get flow into the valve body.  Just a idea.
