Old EFM Instruction & Lubrication Diagram Circa 1957

PostBy: brckwlt On: Thu Dec 03, 2009 2:07 pm

When i started to clean out my extremely cluttered and dirty basement i found an old EFM instruction & Lubrication diagram.It is dated 2-14-57. I already had a pretty big hunch someone use to burn coal at this house sometime before i bought it. (Although when i moved in i had some NG boiler from the eighties that i replaced with an AA-130.) There is a huge coal bin (well lets call it a storage house) in the basement that can easily hold 15 ton. Well my hunch was confirmed when i found this paper. Seems like someone else was as smart as i am :roll:

I thought this was pretty interesting and wanted to share it with everyone else

Keep in mine that you live in NEPA now at one time every house heated with Anthracite coal it was not until the late 60's to early 70's that people started to switch to Oil or Gas Coal was king before the late 60's Also at one time there where hundreds of coal stoker boiler/ furnaces companys being built in PA. It was the main source of heat for more then 150 years here and many of the surrounding States .
