35 year old Keystoker KA6 boiler leak At ^a
Please see attached pics. This is an old unit, with many new parts. Works well, except for the leak.
This has 2 domestic hot water heating coils as an option when I bought it. A small leak started on the left coil last winter. We thought bad gaskets, so we ordered replacements from you. Yesterday we removed the coil to re-gasket, and found the hole, with a lot of metal eroded away from the leak. The hole is outside the contact area for the gasket. It went straight thru the boiler wall. It looked weak, so we poked it with a large screwdriver. The metal crumbled as the pics show.
Is this fixable ? Is there a way to repair the eroded steel part and reinstall the coil ? Could we flatten the studs and weld a cover plate over the whole thing ? We can get by with just the one coil.
Is there anyone in my area (Mountain Top) who could fix this for us ?
