Lead filler on Bennett Doors? #749885 06/03/2020 5:18 PM

Bennett pump doors. Sight Glass/Trim holes at the top are filled in. I'm told that's factory and with lead?

Any of you restorers dealt with this? Can it be melted out with a propane/MAPPS torch? Sorry I didn't take a pic of the inside. There's a piece of metal 'welded' to the back but not like mig-welded.

Also, difference(s) between a 966 and 1066? Did some digging but couldn't determine that.

Thanks!

Used a MAPP gas torch and lead came right out. The center sight glass was actually tack-welded in place then filled with lead. Dremel tool took quick care of that afterwards.
