What I'll do is to run the AA as the primary heat source, and keep the big monster boiler idling during cold weather so that if the AA can't keep up the Big Boiler can stoke-up and make up the BTU shortfall.
All I have to do is set up the AA in the shop, use the exsisting underground piping, and I can set up a HUGE coal bin so the AA can have a month's worth of coal or more in the bin. I have some 6" bean auger for an ash removal system, if I find time I'll make a 'once-a-week' boiler operation.
Now all I have to do is be the successful bidder.....
