Need Help

I have an old oil steam boiler and trying to figure out the brand. If anyone can tell me who made this, I would be forever grateful  :)

    Do you see that yellow sticker with the phone number on it?
    Call them to see if they have any records on your boiler.

    See if there is a ratings plate underneath all the filth on the top or inside that door. brand won't really change how you service it. there may be asbestos insulation inside that side door.

    My guess is a 1970's Peerless or American Standard. Most likely it's been repainted.

    I'll take a stab.. Bunham Jubelee. The copper polishes up nice and shiney,. but then you get giant crabs singing songs to you.

    That would be my guess. The side access door looks exactly like a 70s Burnham.

    Hard to believe there is no identification on there, The I=B=R rating plate must be under the green cover somewhere. Or it is embossed in the cast iron somewhere. I doubt that it is American Standard, The tell tale hook mount to hang the ARCOFLAME burner is missing from the front door just below the observation door..

    Not everybody will get that.
