Is it time to replace my old Smith Mills 44
It's served us well for the last 100 years, but the cracks are literally beginning to show.....
We've had several sections replaced back in 2016, but new cracks have formed in at least two sections. Unfortunately, the company that did the work went extinct along with their inventory of old parts.
We can't seem to find anyone who'd give give us a reliable opinion on what we can do with it, so I present this dilemma to you all:
We don't have the funds to replace the boiler at present. Can the cracked sections can be capped off or otherwise disabled to buy us some time to raise funds for replacement? (Or otherwise?)
