here it is the hole towards the from above the presto label is where I removed the old dial gauge and haven't put the new one on you can see the old petcock and whatnot towards the back the new weight and steam pipe goes there and it seems like I would put the new vent pipe in then when I'm ready to pressure up I just sit the weight on top to seal it?

Re: any canner experts have a brain i can pick?

After pondering this, we (dh the pressure canning pro and I) think you might have all the pieces and you're on the right track. Our emergency vent looks different than yours so we're not 100% but if your books says so...


Did you get a new seal for this? That's a definate. And fwiw, our canner looks as old as this one and it works great.
