what i started with
after cutting. i wish i had a plasma cutter. and i know i shake a lot. if you noticed in the top right and top left of the boiler i added lifting eyes. also added one to the front. three points of lift. its a lot nicer balancing it on the engine hoist now.
big whole now what?
sorry forgot to take pictures in between these two.
the finished pouch plate.
edit:-- extra info
Quick note if that is the new style coil plate extended flange from efm the old DHW coil plate does not fit bolt pattern on new flange takes new style coil efm switch to the same bolt pattern when they started to make extended flange that is on oil boilers so the old coal stoker coils do to fit must buy new style oil boiler coil when fitting new extended coil flange.
Hopefully you built it yourself and copied the same bolt pattern as old one if not you will need a new style coil to fit it .
i am going to get a new coil. the old one held pressure but it leaked after a couple of minuets at pressure. my water pressure is high coming in the house. its set at 60 psi. i know its high but i like it. showers are nice with the right shower head it took a wile to find the right one. i have pressure reducers on some of the lines, some things that can't take pressure well. ill get some pics of the base up tomorrow. it's coming along nicely. the stainless nice to use but it's a bitch to work with.
