    I don't see any listings for a Dole #95. Are you sure that you have that right? There is a Dole #5. I assume with a 1/8" straight stem that this is on a convector? There are a number of replacement options, either straight or you can adapt its mounting with a couple brass elbows. A picture would help.

    I have a steam boiler (actually 2) in my basement. The basement has a two pipe system running horizontally and they connect to one pipe going vertically to different runs on the the second floor. I assume one pipe for return water and one for the steam. The Dole 95 and a two other similar really old vent valves are on the risers in the basement. These 3 are straight valves and 1/8". See picture. I have a second boiler for the first floor which has 3 vent rite # 33 valves that are 1/4" straight valves.
