    As Bob stated, the Series 4 boiler was the predecesser to the IN or Independence boiler. Although the dimensions and draft hood are somewhat different, the basics of how to pipe them are the same as the Independence boiler. You can dowload the drawings from our website in .pdf format from the link below. There are no Series 4 manuals available anymore. The steam drawing is on page 18 of the I&O manual. Hope this helps.

  • Repiping

    Repiping is your call Gary. This boiler is pushing at least 15 years old. It is a classic example of a boiler that was replacing one that was considerably taller. Hartford Loop is always exposed to the steam. I see this more often than you could imagine. I think the worst example of laziness I can recall was the job where they jacked the boiler up on 3 sets of blocks to try and match the existing Hartford Loop connection to the new boilers water line rather than repipe it. That one was an accident waiting to happen!
