Just had to throw out an update. Progress hooking up the beast has been slowwww
Seems like I have hooked up boilers for the entire northeast and forgot mine
So the last two weekends have been devoted to getting off the skeiks list of contributors. Seems like there is never enough or the right parts to do it. Last night I battled with the 1"Pex-al-pex to hook the boiler into the rest of the system. The stuff is not as easy to work with as soldering copper.
Progress stalled to a halt when I plugged in the stoker to check it out. There was little air flow out the pot so after taking off the fan assembley and checking in there, the whole fan stoker had to be pulled off to find the blockage. A family of chipmunks had turned the neck of the stoker into there own little Tag Mahal! Man they had so much insulation and seeds stuffed in there that it filled half a five gallon pail.
Well, today is the rest of the Pex and some control wiring and then the startup.
Maybe by tonight we will be easing down the coal road
