what is the cost for a new auger?
couldn't sleep much. im like a kid on Christmas morning.
i can't stop smiling. well just looking it over with my morning coffee. it looks like the burner "fire pot" is in great shape. i know that everything will come apart and inspected cleaned and anti seized when going back together. the old aqua stat is going to need up dating its the old mercury type. i think its the original one from the 60's. i know im getting ahead of my self a little but what type of controllers am i going to need?
tried to spin the motor it's locked up. but being from the 60's it can be refreshed. thank goodness. i keep old tools, my fathers stuff, from when they use to rebuild starters and alternators. he owned his own marina for 30 years got out in 1987. now he builds houses for something to do. in his words. if it takes me all year to build a house, it gets me off the couch and out of your mothers hair. not bad for 78, that can out work me.
BTW the unit was set up for steam. but i know that doesn't matter. well i hope it doesn't?
and yes i did get the guys info and i gave him mine. i told him if he comes across anything that looks like a boiler. to give me a call and ill take a look. i would by them coffee any time i see these guys.
and yes coal berner. it is safer to test pressure vessels with water. ive got the setup for doing just that, at work. what is the testing pressure of this boiler? i mean what is it tested to "pressure" when new? would be nice to get the specs. i know that some pressure vessels are crazy high when testing repairs.
and thank you for all the help, and future help that everyone is giving me on the endeavor. i don't what to rush this. i want to do it right the first time. doing it twice is not an option. never have and never will. it seems to aggravate people these days when you don't cut corners to get it done.
