I picked up a 242 NL a few weeks ago that had a bolt in place of the ball nut, and a crushed pump tube where some one apparently tried to hammer on a 200a pump and cover.  I fixed that problem with a steel rod that fit into the tube as a mandrel and some light peening.  However, it appears the brass vent stud had a die ran down it to fit the bolt.  I've tried a couple of ball nuts but they won't fit.  Does anyone have a line on a proper sized stud?  Thanks in advance!

242 NL had a stud in the vent that fits into a socket in the MC:

There is no rollmark on the fount so I am not sure

If you can get some other pictures of your lantern it may help. Canadian NLs I've seen have vent studs. I'd like to see a picture of your valve wheel also. They're usually different as well... Again from my perspective..

See if there is a sunrise stamp on the collar... Then country of origin under that maybe... Looks like 242a vent and later pump. All easily changed. I'm not sure of what else to have you look for on a NL..

Yup, Made in USA on the collar.  The date stamp on the fount bottom is 4-3 and there is no rod to close the check valve in the pump tube.   So it sounds like I need the correct vent stud and pump to do a proper refurb.  I am assuming posting in the classifeds would be the best way to find those parts?

Pretty sure you have a 242A vent and later bail looking at the pictures @SteveRetherford would probably be able to help you better identify.

Thanks for the input!  So it's a bit of a mishmash, but no worries, I got it cheap due to the damage.  Now I'll have to keep an eye out for parts.

The very very last US 242NL made had a vent stud and an "A" vent.

Dan is correct here , they did a few upgrades on the NL as time went on .different vent , globe , pump n  bails too .... its just us collectors that think we need all the early NL parts to be a proper NL

True. My '34 (month not legible) NL has a pinned pump and the later bail.

they changed everything but not the model number. then they changed the model number without changing anything else. That's an exaggeration as they changed the clocking of the pump cap screws. But you get the idea.
the 242A has the pump cap screws at roughly 12 and 6 o'clock. It is on the left. On the right is a 242NL with a pinned pump shaft and bulge globe. The pump screws are more or less horizontal. the bail clears the bulge globe but is tighter than the 242A if you look closely.
Steve got me into these and for a while I was off in the deep end with them.
as with most of these I could use some documentation. The plating on the NL is very nice-exceptionally so.

I think Richard may have one like this. Only doubt is because it looks like it has been apart, as the valve clocking is off a bit, and the pump changed.

some different NL's including Mel's rare 242. Check the filler cap indentations, the vent attach and the bails. 
the early ones had nickel plated valves. And etched cylindrical glass. Really cool.
