hi everyone I'm new to the forum and need some help. My father just passed away and I am trying to help my mom get settled my father had our house built in 1975 and a little after he replaced the wood burner with a Victory 700 coal stove I can no longer find parts for it and the back plate in the hopper is starting to warp. I am looking at new coal stoves but I don't know how many btu's the victory is but it keeps the house perfectly heated. The only identification I see is on the lid to the gravity feed and it says union mfg. Victory 700-32. Any help you guys can offer would be greatly appreciated.
Sorry to hear of your loss of your Father. I have the Victory 700 dont know about the knockoff of the Franco Stove but Victory is no longer in business and it was also in Boyerstown. YOU can buy parts for your stove if you send me your email I will scan the paperwork I have for you and give what ever info I can. Thanks Ed
