Bounce an idea off some here. - Pictures added

VHT paint does not work well on vents. Why would it work on the pyrex?

Just my opinion.

USA built 242B

Did the 242B made in the USA ever have the sea-foam vent?

I just picked up a nickle 242B with a rough sea-foam vent. I thought that the sea-foam vent color was a Canada thing.

LZ tid bit

One other notable about the early LZ is that it should have the full round burner frame. The later LZ has the half moon cut out in the bottom plate of the burner frame. At least that is the difference between mine.

Project 502

Nice how to Murff.

The oil wrench is a great idea. I have done the channel lock plies method and have ruined a few lower burner parts.

If you are in a situation were you may have to punt the 275 into the lake please make sure to tie a large rock to the lantern first. We don't want any floaters in the lake.

Vent substitute

If you go with the cone shape on top of a 242 it would make it look like a yard knome. Then the next thing you know you are doing Travelosity adds.
