I have dug out 4 quicklites and trying to figure out which one to fix up and make into a runner.  Have never done one before.

I have 2 that are both 26/2 dates.
20200719_151305_copy_756x567.jpg here are the obvious differences....fibre vs bake lite disk, which is correct?

Secondly, which filler cap is correct (there are subtle differences)?

Third, which threaded top post is correct (and I just noticed the lugs are slightly different too!)?

Now the 2 dated 27/12 and 27/1...

The Jan model (with attached pump) has a knurled winged filler cap while the December model has a smooth winged filler cap.  Are those the proper ones for the those models?
20200719_151402_copy_756x1008.jpg 
Lastly, the 27/12 has a valve I have not seen before.  When were these used and for which models?
20200719_151348_copy_756x1008.jpg 
Sorry for a bunch of questions all at once but I would like to pick one or maybe 2 of these and get them running.  Normally wouldn't care too much but since I can pick and chose I thought I would ask the questions.  Anyone have suggestions on which one to start with?

@coleman54 is the guy for checking for correct parts. If you've never done one before I'd recommend don't them all... Looks like 3 different models you have to me... Need one of each Ã°Å¸ËœÂ

Yes I am hoping @coleman54 takes a peak as he sure knows his stuff.  I think after I get one (maybe 2) working I will just sell the others as I am running out of room.

The 427 looks all correct.  I'd definitely look at that one first... However, since this is your first restoration on a QL you might want to polish up a 327 for practice.  Yours aren't too rough, and you should be able to go through them in a weekend for the first one.  Go slow.  Vinegar and citric acid will turn brass pink and ruin your day.  Oven cleaner, a potato brush, soft cloth, Mother's and elbow grease.

I think the odd knob is Canadian, but I'm away from all my references at the moment.

Both of your 427s are definitely keepers.. They tend to command a higher selling price as well. The 327s seem to be plentiful but are still some of my favorites. Quicklites/Air Os are my double mantle of choice nice lanterns for sure ðŸ‘

Thanks for a vote of confidence, from here these all appear to be Toronto and @adelcoro is an authority on those. 😁

Well Mr Del Coro is sure to be around soon enough.  That fibre wheel has very small ridges, seems to have a different font and almost seemed to be brown in color.  I think the integrated pump model may be my target lantern.  I will have to start looking for some how to pages on the fettling.

Doesn't get much easier than a quicklite. I think you'll enjoy cleaning them up as much as you will running them. Have fun ðŸ‘

I've never been one to fuss over differences as subtle as what you're showing. (And I usually run R55 gens instead of the original Q99s.) Anyhow, the Bakelite knob on the 327 is a replacement; all that means is the original owner got a lot of use out of it. All the other parts you ask about seem to be correct for the lanterns they are on.

PS the odd valve you ask about on the 427s were found on Canadian Quicklites of all kinds.

Thanks for the info.  Dont get me wrong, I am not a stickler for every little detail either.  Especially for a standard runner, but my thoughts are that if I can pick and chose since I am only doing up one or two, I may as well use the proper parts. 
None of these are in super great condition so it isnt a value thing whatsoever.  Also, knowing the little details is just a fun part of this hobby IMO.

- valve wheels on 1927 Can 427 model are correct
- 1926 327s should have the earlier filler plug (below) 
Both the valve wheels (below) could be correct for a 1926 Can 327

If that's a bake-a-lite valve knob it is cool. I've never seen one around here (Michigan).

I believe Agostino explained to me in the past that Canadian fiber valve wheels were not letter stamped ( A-G ) as were US in the 1922-1928 era.

I dont think it is bakelight.  Seems more fibre like.  They are a nice wheel actually.

Thanks for the info and pics Mr Del Coro.
