Can someone tell me the proper clocking? Also it came with this mica chimney, but didn’t it have the other style with the round lighting door and full metal panel?

Not sure of the clocking but that looks like it will clean up good. That mica looks like the ones I have.

James on those Air-O's I've found the fillers are normally clocked 90 degrees to the valves left or right. Then on the later 327s it seems they went to 180 from the valve... Not sure anything is set in stone on those.

As far as mica you need the tall narrow reflector with the lighting hole. Scroll down in this post to see Larry's photo.

That’s what I was wondering. The valve was opposite of the filler but who knows. It seems that the mica was probably replaced with this one I’ll see how well it cleans up and I’ll probably get Fred to make a proper one. I’m cleaning it now and can barely make out the airo lantern and model ql. Thanks

AFIK, the base plate half-moon cut-out over the filler; the air tube over the hole on the base plate and the valve centered vertically in the collar is about it.

Clocking is a big pet peeve of mine, but when I see a 327 clocked 90 or 180 I'm fine with it 😁

After receiving a replacement frame collar from a generous member here. She lives again for another 100+ years. The collar on this one had nearly 50 percent of the bottom gone.

Thanks everyone I will say these old ones are what I enjoy most about this hobby. I cleaned up the mica a bit for this pic

I love the gentle hissss of the old Quikies.

Great job, and the mica looks exceptional! I've yet to find one worth saving.

It’s not without its flaws, however not worth redoing. I’m about 50/50 on being able to use a original if I find one. Need to have some made and repaired
