Re: How do you clean your vents?

Mostly whatever I have depending on the grime: dish soap and water, Go-jo/Fast Orange, Lava soap, Sprayway, Barkeeper’s Friend, oven cleaner, lye bath in the ultra sonic cleaner, 4/0 steel wool, razor blades and fingernail scratching as needed.

No wax.

Gizzard,

I appreciate your interest and eagerness—however, I’m afraid that ship has sailed. Will has received my ‘73 and one of the ‘64s is enroute to me along with some other goodies we agreed upon.

At this point the only thing pending is USPS making the final drop.

Re: more mishmash parts questions

The valve bung on the 290 series is larger than the 1/8" NPT of the 242/200 series valves. So, unfortunately not without modification/making a bushing.

There are large 220-size founts with 1/8" NPT threads. My Canadian 639 is. Hopefully other can chime in with more info on that.
