Well bud as far as I can see by your information you have a 17" Burnham hand fed coal boiler... as far as I know Buderus is the only manufacture that makes a cast sectional boiler designed to burn coal. and from what I hear because of EPA regulations they are limited to a relatively low BTUH output... are you looking for parts? is there something wrong with your burnham?

I am not having a problem with mine, it is running fine. My neighbor is putting on a large addition and heated garage and his current boiler won't be big enough. He is looking to buy something brand new. Right now he has a burnham like mine only one section smaller, it is possible to find sections and add to it, but he will have to have a new base made and the used sections aren't easy to find in the best shape. Im hoping to get his old boiler cheap from him to have some spare sections for mine.

I don't know how much money he's looking to spend, but he should look into getting something like "the coalman" stoker fired boiler with ash removal auger, higher efficiency, less smoke and I think it's around 400,000btu/hour max output, which should be able to handle just about anything your neighbor throws at it. There is a forum member here that sells them.

Would that work for a steam system? What is the forum members name?
Thanks,

Biasi has a boiler that burns Bit or now it will burn hard coal too. It also will burn wood but I don't suggest burning wood

I had problems recently with my boiler, it was malfunctioning and I didn’t know what to do but then my friend told me about this gasboilerspareparts.com/biasi-boiler-heating-spare-parts , it helped me a lot, I managed to get the part that was broken in the first place and replace it. Now it is working like never before.
