Recent 242C purchase. Previous owner said he had it going. I needed to replace the cap gasket and clean it up. Noticed this hole, doesn’t look like it’s supposed to be there. Click image for larger version - Name: 3473FE89-6D30-4E9F-97D1-84E8CE2F7123.jpeg, Views: 140, Size: 88.71 KB

Yes that is fine. It’s just in the casting area for the bail holder. That space does not go through to the mixing chamber. It happens where the casting was too thin.

No worries, glad you asked!  I assume you have a vent rod not shown... top of mixing chamber needs to be closed off before lighting.

Look close Dave, the vent stud blends into the background of the pic.
