All Original 1938 Steam System Complete With Original Heating Blue Prints

Nice find. New owner. Beautifully installed system. Not, however, terribly efficient: Time for steam to header: 33 minutes. Time for mains to vent: Unknown. I had to give up after 40 minutes! Radiation is recessed Arco cast iron convectors. New owner is removing the convector grills, sandblasting, and powder-coating. Should come out looking very nice.

Owner wants to stay with oil: MegaSteam Dreamin'!
