Venting Steam Boiler through side of house

harveys Member Posts: 1
I am renovating an 1870's brick home with an oil fired steam boiler venting through an unlined chimney.  I wanted to line the chimney for safety reasons but have been told by an experienced chimney mason that an 8" liner cannot be placed in the existing chimney.  I am prepared to replace the 50+ year old existing boiler with a modern gas or oil steam boiler but I can't figure out how to exhaust the burner short of rebuilding the entire chimney.  Is there anyway to exhaust a steam boiler out the sidewall of a basement?  If so is this method safe and reliable?
