226e restore
Posted by davido1224 on Tuesday, February 26, 2019 8:05 AM

I am trying to restore a 226e and the firebox portion where the light connects looks to be broken off...Can anyone supply a picture of the way the light is connected in the shell?


thank you

I've got one of these in pieces as a restoration project.  I'll dig it out and see if there is enough there to take some picutres that might help you.  I probably won't get to it until next week sometime, though.

Good luck.

Thanks for your thoughtful idea, Kevin.


I plan to help with Joe Mania's expertise.
