Rebuilding a Vintage Coleman® Lantern or Stove

First thing--we don't want to get anyone hurt. If you are not mechanically inclined or are in anyway uncomfortable with tinkering with a gasoline lantern or stove please do not attempt these repairs. If you need someone to rebuild your lantern please visit coleman.com for the repair center nearest you.

I developed these procedures over the course of many years rebuilding my own and customer's lanterns. There may be different and/or better ways to do some things but they should work pretty well for experienced and first-time rebuilders alike.

Please be careful if you attempt repairs on a lantern or stove. It is dangerous having gasoline within inches of a very hot flame so everything you do has to be correct to be safe. Respect that and perform each and every task safely.
