This will help bring back a good clean
burn in your lantern and stop most red flame's around mantle.
Problem: Lantern is operating just fine, but after 2-3 min. or 30 sec., drops from a bright light to a dim one. Solution: Clear #50 by turning part #111 (Knob) from 6 O'clock to 12 O'clock(back & forth motion). This helps... but...if it dims again, then you will need to clean the parts below (see photos).
If there is a "flaming" around the mantle(after performing above process), then see instructions shown below.
See photo below: Remove large chunks of carbon (we use standard butter knife). Sandpaper part #101 after taking off large parts of carbon.
When removing #101 take it out as #104 complete, you frist need to remove #114
See below photos: Remove Part #50 before cleaning out part #152. Use a 22 caliber brush. This is easiest method. Use brake. oven cleaner, or carburator cleaner.
The best way to put the parts back together is #152 upper vaporizer then #68 needle then #50 nipple, (with a dot of muffler mender) and most of the time #111 at 6 O’clock after you put the #68 in place.
When you reinstall part # 50 you may need this!
