Restoration of a PETROMAX 829 lantern

First off I need to get this out of the way!

I don't want to get anyone hurt. If you are not mechanically inclined or are in anyway uncomfortable with tinkering with a lantern you should not attempt what I show you! If you need your lantern worked on there are many that can do it for you and I will be more than happy to point you to the closest one I know!

These procedures are the writer way of doing it. There are certainly other ways, many probably better. But  these steps make logical sense, are easy as they can get, and work the vast majority of the time.

If you've never torn down a lantern then this is written for you! If you've done it a time or two then I hope you might catch something that will make it a little easier for you.

So please be careful if you attempt to take apart your lantern! It is fundamentally dangerous to have fuel of any type within a near proximity of very hot flames. Respect that and do everything safely.
