The chimneys (fonts?) (Victors), the brass part on top of the headlight where the heat comes out, keep falling off when I'm driving my 1914.
They're only held on by a set screw inside the headlight, but it looks like they should also be held on by 2 flanges on top of the headlight bucket. The flanges on mine are squashed down flat and the chimney just sets on top of the headlight bucket, with the set screw holding the front down until the vibration shakes it loose. The inside of the chimney looks like it should slide over 2 flanges.
Are there supposed to be 2 flanges for the chimney to slide on, then tighten the set screw? Hope this makes sense.
Thanks for any help.

Yes. There are two flanges that the chimney will slide onto and the set screw keeps them in place.

Thank you Ed. I have those, but they're pounded down flat. Guess I'll see if I can pry them up a little. Thank you again for your help.
Bob
