Furnace Vent Grill for 73 Boler

hi all, i picked up a 73 Boler American off of craigslist + am working hard to get it up to snuff to use for labor day weekend (here in the states). i believe that the camper wasn't used for close to 35 years...

luckily the camper was under a tree, so was pretty protected. there is a wagon-master furnace in there with a with a rotted vent grill plate. does anybody out there know where i can find another one?

Try Outback / Trillium. They work on many Bolers. Joe Thoen has quite a collection of old furnaces. In fact, I was there yesterday. I looked at a couple of tall narrow gravity furnaces and asked Joe what they were. He said that they were Wagon-Masters.

I just used a stock vent from a hardware store. Details in my post here:
Restoring Our 1972 Boler American

I just installed it straight. I'm trying to decide whether to clean up the surface rust this year with a high heat paint or just replace it.

Furnace Vent Grill for 73 Boler

thanks to both of you for your replies. it looks like tomorrow is busy on my search. roy, the bolero that i picked up looks a lot like what yours used to. i don't believe that it moved in over 35+ years. it sat in a back yard in queens, ny. one the years stairs were built on the house in front, so we had to chain saw through a neighboring property to pull it out. i am hitting this one fast + furious so that we can take it on a cruise over to montauk (long island) for the end of this month.

i have mostly gutted it, doing new upholstery, cabinet doors (the particle board is completely shot) have cut out the support for the bunk bed, new tires,etc. i have just gotten my shipment of the marine adhesive that you suggested, + found tsp on amazon (couldn't find it local here).

the furnace vent is crumbling, so i would like to put something over it... if i had the time i would post pictures, but being that it is past midnight + i can"t really control time, i am moving on many fronts...

let's see what i can find...
