OK, since I haven't found anyone willing to part with a 237 vent, I'm looking for a work-around.  A vent (from another model) that is shallow enough so that the bail will fit underneath and around the sides?  Or a vent that will fit, and I'll let it be held on by the vent nut and forgo a bail.  What model might have one of these half-way solutions?

i did something like your talking about , i used a e or earlier 220 vent , drilled 2 holes in it for the bail BUT the 220 vent it a bit taller and you need a bit taller vent stud , a member here made me a longer vent stud a couple years back .... we have had talks about the FIX in the past . it comes out looking great . not many folks would know its not as original ........ya 236 or 7 nice vents are not easy to find by themselves .

Yup, drilling a center hole and new bail holes too I think.  I bought a 639 vent to drill and replace a 2 piece 237 vent but now I can't find my round2it

For just a user I wonder if an F vent drilled for bail holes might work

What year is your 237? I think I have a dark green 1950s/early 1960s 236 vent but whether it's the correct one depends on the year of yours.

If I have one and you wanted it I wouldn't charge much but I would be shipping it from Canada.

Does:  237 undated type 2B, from 7-54 to 7-57 get the nod?

Does anyone think it would work with a 639 vent without a vent stud.  Would the vent rattle around too much?  I've never removed a vent stud.  Sounds like a several weeks with Kroil type of job.  Or maybe just cut it off flush?

I'd drill a hole in the vent for the stud. Just wear I protection.

If you do remove the vent stud I'd use heat then a small bolt or screw to plug it.

I'm not sure what a type 2B is but I believe the one I have is from the early 50s and from a Canadian 236. 

I'm busy this evening but remind me to check tomorrow evening. I get distracted really easily and may forget to check. :-)

Luke,

I took a look and the vent I have is for a 60s era model and not the 50s like you need.

Sorry. I thought I had a 50s one but I don't.

Brought a porch 285 in and it fits and the bail is attached to the vent. The ends of the bail would need to be slightly trimmed to clear the top of the globe.

A Northstar vent would work in a pinch. It would require slight modification to the bail holes in the Northstar vent. The O.D. of the Northstar vent is barely larger than the opening of a large bulge globe.

Use a 228 style vent from a JC Higgins. For a perfect fit you'll need the JC bail and a vent rod extension
Any 228 vent would work if you drill bail holes.
