Today I removed the original heater from a 77 Boler
. Pretty easy, just unscrew the front screws, the nut to the propane
line and the outside vent screws. Two of the outside screws are rusted to the inside nuts, so that is taking more effort. After that, I'll take out the two rivets which hold the interior pipe. The extra storage in this cabinet will be really nice. Just gotta find a door and hinges to cover the hole!
The heater or its parts are free to anyone who needs it. I tried to light
it 4 years ago, but the pilot light
would not stay on. Maybe just needs a thermocoupler? Send me a message if you are interested in the heater. Headed to the recycler if no one wants it!
For those who have taken out their heater, what did you use to cover the outside hole? Suggestions welcome. Thanks!
