I have a chance to get an old Arcoliner 0155T boiler in fine shape with coal grates, Can these be converted to coal easly enough, It's 50's cast iron almost the size of a fridge, 120.000 btu per hour. Should be enough to warm the shop floor.

If it has shaker grates, it should burn anthracite. How about a couple of pictures of it? A few inside and out would help to determine how it will work out for you.
