Re: 200A burner caps

Yea, Brian, they would all be the (normal) larger type. Some early-mid ‘50s ones had a ceramic burner cap but it was still larger than the 220 type.

Re: 200 242 handle improvements?

Try folding the bail/handle down, close to the fount. Then grab it near the ventilator end with your fingers. Use your thumbs to keep the bail ends from chipping the porcelain. Works well for putting on and taking off. An old timer taught me this and it is much easier on the bail-through-the-ventila...

It happens, Tyler. Sometimes the stamp is light (or missing), partial, or in the wrong spot (opposite side). Add some rust into the mix and it can make things more difficult. Either way, it’s making light, so enjoy it!

Re: Leaking valve?

Sometimes loose bits of graphite will work their way out along with a fuel leak at the packing nut.

Usually snugging up the nut and/or cleaning the valve stem with some 4/0 steel wool takes care of it. If not, I replace the packing.
