Matt, we want to see them ALL. Especially the Losch and Yellow FLame, I don't think there is much information about them on the forum. There are also very few EFM 700 owners on the forum.

I would like to see the LOSCH, I took care of one in my church (in my younger days) , it's been over 20 years and I can't remember exactly how they look anymore. :gee:

Matt!!!! What a monster of a boiler! What do you heat with that, an apartment complex? What are the plugs for above the fire door? Access to the fire tubes for cleaning? Keep the pictures coming! It's been pretty boring lately :lol:

The tubes are the heat exchangers. The 2 doors on the upper right of boiler are the cleanouts. I will post pics when I service it. Probably in early fall.

Here is a rare boiler I just serviced. The basement was so tight it was hard to get a good pic. An Allen coal stoker, very similar to wagner parts. She had a quote to tear it out and replace it with an oil burner. :x I was able to replace the brass drive dog and weld a patch plate for a new hot water coil. It's running good. Most important I kept the oil people away!!! :D

We love to show our, uh, boilers. LOL.

Seriously, nice thread. I like seeing the older units, especially. I'll add a pic later.
