hi rick, ya i did get your pics. looks good thanks for those. my boler didnt have a heater in it when i got it but all the wiring and the propane lines are there but just plugged off. the heaters seem to be really hard things to get ahold of and they dont make them any more. where did you pick yours up from? did you have to modify things? and what kind of heater was it? anyways i have time off work right now so i basically have nothing but time to work on the boler, i been spending all day every day working on it actually last night i was out working on it untill about 230 am. haha. its coming together really nicely, the paint, the fiberglass. flooring is going in tomorrow. i have alot of pics that i will post asap.

Hi Brandon my Boler came with a furnace, I see that you are from Beautiful BC. On Craigslist Vancouver there were a couple of rv furnaces for sale that would fit in a Boler even the new one that is in my BIGFOOT would fit anyway have a look,anyway when you are done you could bring it to the Fort Langley Glasss Egg Meet in Sept Rick and THE BC BIGFOOT...

Hi again Brandon the original Boler heater did not use any wiring ,there was a pilot light that you had to light and then hope that it stayed on ,the new ones are much better they are all electronic ignition 12v no pilot lights but sometimes do have a noisy fan 12v also, which the old Boler heater was great just had natural heat rising anyway good luck searching.

Hi Brandon, I have a propane furnace made by Wagon Master that I just removed from a 1976 Boler. With our warm nights here in Southern Ontario, we don't really need it and my wife wants the extra cabinet space.

I believe this furnace was not original as it appears someone added it at some time. I know that it works as I fired it up before I removed it. I am going to post it for sale on this site, but if you are interested, let me know.

Hi Dave,

I don't want to cut in on Brandon, but if he doesn't want the furnace, I've had a "wanted" ad posted on this site for quite a while now, so I'm definitely interested.

Raya

PS: If anyone else reading has one they wouldn't mind parting with, I could stop asking about them
