BT,

The water jug is name an Aristocrat. Limited edition. The personal engraving from the Mr. Coleman himself makes this a real collector.

Bringing this back up.

Sitting on the porch, and it's chilly out... So I decided to fire up my 3--70 heater, just to see If'n it still works.

Picked up a 242C this morning





Fount was under pressure but had some brown, slimy stuff mixed in with fuel

Guessing it was a water/rust sludge

Going to try and revive it

Looks like 2 6's on bottom, no double digit month year like the newer ones

Not even close! It's the guys who have a dedicate shop to all their gear. I plan on thinning out my collection once I get a couple of lanterns restored.

I think it will work, may need a new rubber washer in the connection. One in there has some gaps in it

Original Buddy heater
