How to find BTU rating for 1950's Arcoliner

Hi folks. I'm putting in a flue liner and need the BTUs for my Arcoliner model 0 155T, Series 2BT J3. Any ideas about either where to find it, or how to estimate it? Thanks!

    There's no plate on it anywhere?
    Oil, check the nozzle and pump pressure. Gas, clock the meter.
    Although if you're lining the flue on a 70 year old boiler, the liner may end up being too big when you replace.

    It's in here. The T in your boiler's model number (155T) probably means it has a tankless domestic hot water coil:

    There were a couple different versions and the rating is different for each. The "wet base" version has the return connection at the very bottom of the boiler, while on the "dry-base" version it is maybe a foot or so above the bottom. If you're not sure take some pics and post them.
