Re: Luck E Lite No. 25
Harry: The attachment of the hanger is a little tricky, but you do not have to bend the tabs. I will try to describe the procedure for you. Place the lantern back side (bracket side)facing toward you. Take the Kirkman hanger and place it between the lantern and the top wire bracket upside down with the tabs facing toward you. Move the Kirkman hanger to the right or left to either corner where the wire turns downward until the center tab can slip under the wire. The curved tabs will easily slip over the wire at this point. Move the backet back along the wire until it is back at the top of the wire. It should be hanging upside down and backwards at this point. Simply flip the Kirkman backet toward the lantern until it is upright and, viola you hanger is attached. To answer your question about the lower backet, this backet attached to a threaded bolt attached to the truck with a wing nut. (note: truck beds in the late 1930's were made of wood.) As to your burner.. any embury traffic guard burner will fit the No. 25 Luck-E-Lite so find a junk Embury traffic guard with a good burner and you have the replacement you need. I hope this helps.
