But this caught me off guard...

Wonder if there's another valve assembly in there somewhere...

The bigger question is, how the heck did you get that out?!  That's a 242, right?

I'm betting previous owner dropped it in there accidentally, couldn't get it out, then found a replacement and rolled with it.

Yes 242, this tool is my go to for fount fishing😁 
IMG_20200709_124446_copy_1024x768.jpg    I was a little worried because of the small valve and filler hole but had it out in less than a minute somehow... Luck I guess... Faster than the match stick I found a couple months ago

I agree with Carlton. I repaired a guy's M-1942 wheel stove and the F/A tube was laying in the bottom. I mean, how could it just fall out? Weird stuff.

I found one full side half of a clothes pin in a green 200A fount about a year ago. Had a tool similar to the one you used Toby, took a little while but eventually got it out.

I had the fuel valve snap off on a 68 200A while putting it back in. It was just a parts lantern anyway, so I drilled it out a little at a time and finally the FA tube fell off inside. I was able to fish it out of the fuel hole with forceps and then re-tapped the valve bung. Are the threads on the fuel valve bung tapered, cause they aren't anymore. It's a clean fount inside, so I hope it is still usable. The fuel valve threads look tapered.

I noticed during this a difference in the FA tubes. The 55 one has another hole on the other side. Somewhere along the line they changed.

Does anyone else remember the member who fount a picture of a girl in the bottom of a fount?

There were other versions of the FA tube for the 220/8s, too.

Here's the early one from a 220C '45:

[46962445271_fdd4d3ea85_b]

That went back to about 1930 on the Bs. It's four pieces, all screwed together.

Here's, I think, the earliest FA tube, from a June '30 228B:

[43939893545_37c49f4f03_b]

It has a screen in that knurled fitting.
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.

There's something wrong with that one... just can't put my finger on it, but it just doesn't feel right.

That was my thoughts... Someone's attempt at a lamp I guess ðŸ˜ I figured that parts would be handy someday

Thats funny! I posted up a picture here when I found it. Someone here said they must have been using it as a dipstick to check the fuel level.
