There is a mysterious mention of part 358042-S in the parts manual (p 89), but it does not appear on the diagram (p 88). Even though the diagram says 1939-52, it may only show the latest assembly. The brass fitting at the bottom connecting to the line to the governor does not connect directly with the interior of the bottom of the canister and cannot act as a drain. I took off the canister and the oil lines and cleaned them and there was very little thick stuff in either. It seems they just expected us to live with a cup of the old dirty oil in every new batch (or siphon/rag.) I can live with that from now on. I will pursue the high pressure issue independently. Thanks so much!
