This is a york coal boiler it says it was made by the (abendroth brothers in portchester new york).this is what it says on the door,on top,i talked to the lady that actually was born in the house ,she said the house was built 1923,that when she figures the boiler was put in,, she used too feed coal into it till early 60"s then it was shut down due to water leakage on the left rear of the sections ,when i pulled it apart,i found one nipple rotted and one on its way out . Would like to replace them all before i put together,too run in my house any info would be appreciated.thanks
