Default Another Kettle

Hey guys and gals. I picked up a OTG this afternoon for 50.00. Can anyone tell me more about this with the serial number below:

CS0668488

It did not have the factory thermometer so the man installed one on his own.

The lid is a little out of round and has a few scratches and paint chips on it as well...what you think, was it a pretty good deal?

If I were to email or call Weber, do you all think they would work with me on a new lid? Other than the wheels and legs installed incorrectly, the bottom portion is in very good shape.

Does anyone have any assembly instructions btw?

Here's a basic age guide.....

http://weberkettleclub.com/determine-age-of-old-grill/u

Serial # until this year, has not really been that clear of a way to determine age........the letter(s) out in the center of the area below the name is usually the best indicator........like so:



And....



For a Gold, that model started in 2000, so you may be able to tell something from that......

Actual MasterTouch models started in 1992........

For an older one, it may have been "fixed" up, like you said, the therm was added....an ash bucket can also be added.....so, in that case it's not impossible there's no letter code & it's older than 1979.....maybe like so......



The legs SHOULD be independent of the ash bucket & can be moved around so the front leg lines up with a handle so it will roll correctly if needed.....TWIST the legs, but do NOT rock back & forth to remove them....rocking can break the welds of the leg sockets.....

I believe the ash sweep handles should be to the right of the front leg, IIRC correctly.....

ereplacementparts.com has exploded drawings for parts I.D. that might help determine not only assembly, but correct age too.....

look part way down.
As for the lid, those are battle scars.

To reshape, if you can picture the shape as a zero, 0, you just put the bottom of the 0 on the ground and lean on the top until it is reshaped.
