OK Lads, here goes with my first post. I recently had an old Resolute given to me with the story that it was delivered new, was dropped and broken. The dealer replaced it and also gave the owner all the parts to repair it. Now the duy I got it from had it given to him and who known the true history. He gave me a load of parts with it but on a quick scan they look like grates and parts for a coal kit. The stove is very rusty but will clean up . So here is my question, The plate on the rear says its a Resolute parlor stove . Nothing else. Ser#is 014888 . Is there any way to narrow down the mfg date ? Also in the kit of parts there is an ash pan but there isn't any ash door on it. I will get a couple of pics to post . There is a hole in the front to the left of the door which hinges down and also a hole on the left side ( facing it) which appears to let air into a chamber which is inside and attached to the inner rear . (secondary?) I was told there is a moveable spring loaded cover to adjust the secondary air supply but the cover and spring are missing. Does this unit need fire bricks or just a sand liner on the floor? Any help is really appreciated.
