No. 3 SERIES HEAT EXTRACTOR NATIONAL BOILER
Hello. Does anyone know anything about this boiler from the National Radiator Company? Its in my 1917 house. I'm wondering when it was manufactured and if its original to the house. When I bought the house 16 years ago my plumber strongly suggested replacing it. Its worked fine all the years since the suggestion. Circulators vibrate the pipes sometimes warrenting a little oil. The plumber still tells me that if it "breaks", there are no parts to fix it. I'd imagine that could be true. I wonder if the manual for the boiler is out there somewhere. Although my plumber is well respected, I doubt he knows much about this beast of a boiler (its BIG). Are there people that maintain/fix old units like this? I'm located in the Salem MA area. Any information on this boiler would be much appreciated. I've attached a couple of jpg pictures. Thanks.
