It's possible to get these parts from coleman or coleman suppliers. To find which needs replacing you'd need access to another similar lantern and try replacing one at a time. Otherwise it's going to be trial and error or just replace all.
Lets see, Do you have any ether or old school lighter fluid? If you use ether spray a little into the air intake just before you pull the cord for a start, if it starts you have a carb problem. Same for the lighter fluid, remove the spark plug and squirt a small amount down in the cylinder, again if it starts you have a carb, probelm. Take the carb. off the engine take note of the rods and springs, take a picture get it in good focus so you can put it back together. Take the fuel bowl off the bottom of the carb and clean the jets and all see if that will help.
the instructions are useless anyway. you put the red poles through the 2 side bedrooms. the black rods and the black poles with the bends in join together and go diagonally through the middle of the tent. the yellow rods join together with the black poles with the yellow tape round the ends and u fit these from the inside of the front and back entrance then when the tent is up you just hook the bedrooms in. hope this was usefull
I had a similar situation with a friends generator. After sitting around unused for a few years it would not generate because the residual magnitism was weak. I plugged a light into it and by using the throttle arm I breifly ran up the RPM and the light came on. DO NOT MAINTAIN THE HIGH RPM FOR MORE THAN A FEW SECONDS.
