Smith-Mills 250 Series coal to gas conversion

in Gas Heating
I got a call to convert a 1950's vintage 250-8(?) to natural gas. Never done a conversion, start to finish, before. Any direction would be appreciated.
JUGHNE Member Posts: 10,580Never done one myself, but have seen some oil to gas conversions. One brand name is Adams Manufacturing of Cleveland, (216) 587-6801. They still answered the phone 2-3 years ago.
Their literature for their "Speedflame" power burners indicated old boilers with "grates and ash doors".
I have found it to be a fairly reliable power burner with simple construction. Efficiency is probably fair to good for being that simple.
I have had experience with only 2 of these units.
But perhaps someone you could contact for some enlightenment.
There are probably a lot of oil to gas conversion possibilities.
But a 1950's coal burner could produce a lot of deer in the headlights expressions. IMO
Note: got to be much better than shoveling coal.0
