Now picture this -- you standing on a ladder - above a scalding hot vessel - holding a 1/2 iron rod with a scraper on the end - and its ??? in length
and your going to first undo the hatch to expose the fire tubes - set that aside - Pull the turbulators - set them aside - then balance on the ladder while you shove the anemia up and down the holes
and then------- you get to put the whole business back together again - at midnight - In the great white north of Wisconsin
