Bought this from the classifieds here a while back, trying now to get an approximate date as I can’t find one anywhere. Also been searching the tech section here but I’m still not sure if this has a one or two piece frame bottom. Any input or info is greatly appreciated.

What letter is on the fiber valve wheel?
Probably be a “B” indicating 1923.

man you nailed it! There is a B on the valve wheel. Thanks a bunch!

As far as the frame bottom goes any ideas?

That flat baffle plate is a separate piece that sits on the frame. Only used a short time as Larry has pinned down the year for you.

The burner frame is one piece, with a flat baffle under burner , then washer underneath.

Figured I’d update this, as I took it apart and got it fired this morning. This was my first QL to take apart and I have to say I was intimidated a little at first but really blown away with how simplistic it really is after I figured it out. Burns strong, no fount leaks or cracks so now onto the cleanup. Going to let this one my first use of oven cleaner on the nickel.

Thank you sir! It actually lit very easily and was surprisingly bright.

Nice save, and well done in getting her fired up.  It’ll be interesting to see how the nickel cleans up with the oven cleaner.

Don't get me wrong I'm a big fan of shiny nickel but I kinda like her the way she sits. Great save.

I've kept this one in the condition as found, except for making it run again:

Difficult, as this is my only 327, but it really stands out from all the shiny lanterns.
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.

Timm, I don't think you'll have to worry about that one getting stolen. 

My only recommendation (unsolicited of course) is you clean up and clear coat the frame and collar. That rust continue's its path towards deconstructing your 327.

It no longer lives hanging from a beam in a leaky barn. I doubt the rust will progress much in my climate-controlled museum!

I know where two more 327s are, in much better shape than this one. It's just a matter of time and constant pressure....
