Lanterns and stoves made from about 1951 to present are usually stamped on the bottom of the fount. You will see two sets of numbers; the number on the left is the month and the one on the right is the year of manufacture.
Both are excellent lanterns. Model # should be on the collar, to the right of the valve stem. The stamping is often faint and obscured by corrosion.
Coleman Serial Number format: #W1L6029995

Begins with one (1) letter digit followed by one (1) numerical digit, then another one (1) letter digit and ends with seven (7) numerical digits. Year of manufacture is 2nd-4th numerical digits combined. Month of manufacture is 3nd character, which is a letter digit.

Look at the tare weight that is stamped on the collar/handle of the propane tank. That is the only truly precise measurement of that specific tank`s empty weight. If you put a propane tank on a scale and the reading matches the tare weight stamped on the collar/handle, then the tank is definitely empty.
The Coleman Lantern series includes luxuries and value that will far exceed your expectations! These features included huge windows for a picturesque view, upgraded furniture focusing on comfort, and solid touch kitchen counter tops!
They burn a fuel like propane, white gas or kerosene to produce heat, and the heat causes the mantles to produce light. The mantles are a ceramic mesh that encase the flame produced by the lantern.
This is the most common reason for pressure loss and is usually caused by a deformed or dry rotted gasket in the cap. To fix it just replace it, if you can. Keep the original for display but use a new replacement cap for use.
And since one gallon of Coleman® Liquid Fuel lasts as long as 4.5 cylinders of propane, you can take less fuel with you to save money and packing space. The 2-mantle design of this lantern creates a steady, bright glow of up to 800 lumens of light that reaches up to 22 meters away.
The fabric of a hard mantle is supported by a metal frame that gives it a dome-like shape. In use, fuel is burned inside the mantle—the heating of the latter causes the thorium to emit an incandescent glow. The type of fuel depends on the type of lantern/lamp, it might be liquid or gas.
It is usually sold in one-gallon cans in the United States; in Europe it is usually sold in one-litre bottles. Additionally, it is a popular fuel for fire dancing.
Description. Coleman`s new U-tube fluorescent lantern runs from 8 D-cell batteries.
The Coleman Lantern is a line of pressure lamps first introduced by the Coleman Company in 1914. This led to a series of lamps that were originally made to burn kerosene or gasoline. Current models use kerosene, gasoline, Coleman fuel (white gas) or propane and use one or two mantles to produce an intense white light.
Generally, propane pressure should be between 100 and 200 psi to ensure that the liquid propane gas remains in a liquid state. Normally, the pressure inside a propane tank fluctuates slightly based on the outside temperature.
Coleman also produced lanterns for several other companies, including Sears, Roebuck and Co.
Our Verdict. The Coleman Northstar is a lantern`s lantern. It is a propane-fueled, car camping behemoth that is very, very bright. In fact, it receives the highest score for brightness of all the products we tested.
The mantle is a mesh bag of fabric impregnated with a solution of nitrates of cerium and one or more of the following metals: thorium, beryllium, aluminum, or magnesium. The mantle is fixed over an orifice carrying a flammable gas such as natural…
It produces 54 lumens of effective, efficient light and lasts up to 175 hours on 4 D batteries (sold separately).
Always change damaged mantles as soon as you can.

Beyond replacing damaged mantles, American Gas Lamp Works recommends that you replace your mantles at least once per year. Changing your mantles annually will ensure that your lamp remains bright and fuel-efficient.

Coleman fuel and unleaded gasoline burn at 7,500 BTU and will boil water in under 4 1/2 minutes. One tank will burn 1 hour and 20 minutes on high or 7 hours on simmer. Kerosene does not quite burn as hot at 6,500 BTUs but will burn for 2 hours and 25 minutes on high or 9 hours on simmer.
You can use gasoline in the kerosene coleman pressure lanterns, you just have to use the preheater cup as if it were kerosene.
Re: pressure in gas lantern

Lanterns usually run between 20-40psi.

For lanterns, lumens start out around 40 and can run up to 700 for the brightest modes; most lanterns will offer something in the 150-350 lumen range. For just poking around camp at night 100 lumens is sufficient.
As you might guess, lanterns emit light. A light level of 15, to be precise, which is slightly more than torches and on par with glowstone, campfires, redstone lamps, and jack-o-lanterns. They`re pretty easy to make – just surround a torch with iron nuggets.
The next time you`re enjoying the outdoors, take one of the brightest lanterns available—a Coleman NorthStar propane lantern. It lights easily without matches. Just push the InstaStart ignition. The lantern is designed for just the right light.

I have a Coleman 228F model lantern. When I go to light it, it barely produces any gas. I have made sure it is pumped adequetly and full of new fuel. I can hear gas coming out very faintly and sometimes it sounds like it is sputtering, like something is blocking the fuel delivery. Any ideas where to look for a blockage? Any easy way to tell if it is a blockage or if its a bad part. This lantern has been in my parents garage for a while and hasn’t been lit for probably 10 – 15 years.
ANSWER : The other poster is right if it was left with fuel in it the fuel pickup is probably plugged. On this lantern the pickup is called a “Fuel Air Tube”. To test if its really plugged pull the generator (thats the brass tube with a nut on the bottom that runs up between the mantles and open the valve (do this outside, we expect fuel to come out). Fuel should POUR, or maybe even shoot out at that point. If it doesn’t you’ve definitely got plug down below. If you do: drain the fuel out, put in some carb cleaner or fuel system cleaner, pump it back up and open the valve to let some of the fuel system cleaner into the FA tube, then close the valve and wait a few days. Open the valve again and see if you’re getting more.If you don’t have a blockage you might have something in the air tube (thats the larger tube behind the generator) or the burner tubes (the things the mantles tie to). Or maybe you’re expecting something other than what really happens, when lighting the generator will kind of gurgle or sputter to indicate theres fuel present. You don’t want liquid fuel coming out of the generator’s gas tip, that would give you a big fireball when you tried to light the lantern…

Square tent with 2 types gazebo poles, varenda, 2 side windows
ANSWER : The 2 longest of the poles go in an x over the center of the tent and the 2 shorter ones go arch to the sides. a picture very similar to your tent. If you go to image 2 it shows it with out the fly. now if you got 2 sets of 4 poles, 2 long and 2 short, and one set is all aluminum, then I would go with the aluminum set. It is less likely to collapse in high winds.

My 1977 Evinrude 140 HP outboard engine looses power when it hits @4,200 rpm’s and goes down to 3,500 then back up to 4,200 and then back down to 3,000 or about there. This would continue if I didn’t slow down to 3,000 on my own. It runs fine at @ 3,000 when I slow it down. I have changed all the fuel lines from the fuel tank to the carbs, removed, cleaned out the fuel tank, put new gas and added a can of SeaFoam. I replaced the water seperator filter and cleaned the fuel filter. I feel the fuel pump is operating OK. Any ideas about what could be causing my problem? Could it be a bad power pack or stator? Help!!
ANSWER : Hi, this is obviously a stator problem since you have cleaned the fuel filter..

Take care

2005 4 stroke yamaha 150 550hrs. normally use every week but due to surgery not used for 10weeks. Just before I went down I changed internal fuel filter, and zincs in motor. finally put in sunday. motor started fine left dock hit the power and started to come up on plane then stuttered and died. changed the external fuel/water seperator pump up the primer and started up again. with in a minute died down again. limped back to dock checked fuel filter and plug wire connections. pumped up primer and left dock went right onto plane for maybe 150yds then coughed and died. I could pump up primer and it would run but then die out. the fuel filter at the front of the engine would run dry until I pumped it up again. If it were a car I would suspect a leak in a fuel line but I can’t find any sign of one.
before we launched I put 10 gallons of fresh fuel in and added another bottle of ethanol stabilizer (CRC brand)
what proceedure should I follow to isolate the problem? I am a fairly competent mechanic as far as cars and trucks go. I don’t really want to have to take it to a marine mechanic.
ANSWER : This is going to be the fuel pump is not pumping any fuel. The primer is acting as a fuel pump. When you prime it, it gives the engine enough fuel to run for a little bit. But as soon as the fuel runs out, the engine is dying. So this is going to be a bad fuel pump.
