    Have seen many of these. What a superior boiler for its day. And the extended jacket to cover burner assy. sleek looking. Have never seen one leak. Not like todays castings .Applying fire brick baffle in top portion a must though. Good ole double door.

    I'm surprised, that boiler is making you a "good customer" for an oil company. The old stuff usually works great at the expense of efficiency.

    Got a kick out of seeing the copper jacket unit. Used to work for General until April of 2010. Wonder if I ever serviced it. My service number was 535 I think.
    If the women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy.

    That one was in either N. Lindenhurst or W. Babylon, can't remember. I'll have to check General tags from now on.
