Still have 2 bad lanterns

I've oiled the plunger cups as recommended, and one now takes pressure, but turning the flame valve does not allow any gas flow, so the line appears to be clogged or the valve is bad.

The other still will not build pressure. It has a rubber cup which appears to be in good shape, and I have oiled it. No progress.

glencop There are all kinds of parts available to rebuild your lanterns. As mentioned lack of holding pressure can usually be fixed by oiling the leather seals in the pump.

Halfwaythere Okay, I got one running. It was actually not allowing air in to build pressure. Took apart the pump plunger assembly and found a block of ice, so some moisture obviously got in. This had displaced one of the gaskets, which I reseated. The Air Stem was not threaded properly either, which may have been the core of the problem. Cleaned up the threads, put it all together, and immediately noticed a difference. Still takes some time building up pressure, but I was able to get a proper glow without flame.

fishinnut Check the pump cup first. Easy cheap fix. If it's not building up pressure it's probably the cause. It needs to be oiled regularly too.

axis_roll The pump and the check valve are used to create pressure. The fuel filler cap gasket is important for maintaining the pressure.

Anyone Experienced at Repairing Coleman Lanterns?

I've got 2 that no longer hold pressure, both around 10-15 yrs old. I'd hate to spend 80 bucks each replacing them if they can be repaired.
