Hello people of the forum, I am new and I want to ask for some help. I found two very old and in very bad shape lanterns that used to belong to my great grand father, according to my grandma.

I looked for any labeling on them but I did not find anything. I am curious about what model they are, how old are they and wether or not is it viable to restore them.

I am from Colombia and the lanterns must be at least 30 years old. Also they should have been bought here, therefore I assume they are a model produced for South America.

Thank you!

1st one is a Mexico made 236. You cant faintly see the K outline in the direction disk. Should say it on the side of the tank too. Cant tell on the 2nd one but it looks like a 236 aswell. Both good pieces in my eyes. 
I can stop when I want to....... But why?

Both are 236 Mexican.  @Dego look ate the frame base they are no holes in both, and that’s how Mexican 236 lanterns were made.

Is the vent in the lantern with wire mesh normal? Looks to not have a vent stud and shorter than normal.

Yes, the vent is flatter and doesn't have a hole for a screw in the top. Looking a little bit closer it has a '9' on the casted mixing chamber... Does it mean anything?

Any sugestion on what should I read/watch to start understanding how to restore them?

Gracias!

Idk, I kind of like those short vents.. Maybe because they're different? Probably the same reason I like the 243 style vent.

That short vent without the stud hole would look awesome on a 335. It would be like having a big hat 335.

I don't have the vast knowledge base of a lot of these guys, so I don't have much input here. Regardless... Welcome to the forum from Alaska!
