Hi Mac_R Just to correct you it is a forced air furnace not a boiler it’s going in to my welding shop in a few years. I will have to check the RPM under the plate!! I think it is 3450 but I think the pump is lower RPM since it has a smaller pulley and an idler then the pulley on the pump!! I don’t have it running or set up yet so I don’t have the efficiency yet. I have tested it with the .579 MH nozzle in it runs great and quiet and it does put out a good amount of heat with out cycling to long or to short What does If you down fire anything enough you can make the run time efficiency artificially high Mean?? Just asking it helps me learn since I have ADD We can talk via Email too so it makes it easier and share heating stories Let me know?? !!! My email is at the bottom of the post!!! Do you use YOUTUBE MAC_R??? Because I have a video of me showing the furnace in storage!!! There will be a running vid in a few years!!! To find the vid type in Mainelyelectric no space between them in the search bar on YouTube.

Thanks your friend Ben Aka TORCH

What do you mean about it is not a standard fuel pump?? What is difference other then it is belt drive?? Just to let you know the burner still works great and right now has a .579 MH nozzle in it and the fire box is rated up to .75!! Also the Burn tube is bigger then the normal 4 inch so if I ever replace the burner when it dies 100% past fixing I most likely will have to weld up a adapter flange!!! Thanks again Ben AKA TORCH Keep those tips, help and ideas coming

Here is what I have

@ April 10, 2012 12:50 AM in BIODIESEL AS HEATING FUEL

I rather not replace any thing on my burner if I don’t have to! Do they just make the seals the you can replace in a old Webster pump (well I think it’s Webster what do you think) Here are some pics of the pump face and the burner I would like to burn B99 in!! is that big W mean Webster? It’s a Lennox burner and furnace 60 years old I can send the specs for it if that would help any?? It is a belt drive pump!!! sorry the pics are sideways

Thanks to any one for tips, help, or ideas Ben AKA Torch

How about this?

How about removing the drum? Will that work better? How
about having a few 90’s and some horizontal (they used to do a long flue in old
school houses that was probably 20’) Then my pipe would go through the wall to
the next room and turn right into the concrete chimney. How about that? Thanks
for all your help, Ben  AKA Torch  PS. I sketched up a small picture, try to make it out if you can. The camera reversed it.

Wood and coal stove, venting flue, flue sizes, and flue HELP needed

@ April 8, 2012 11:52 AM in Wood and coal stove, venting flue, flue sizes, and flue HELP needed

Hi I have a welding shop in a old shipping container for my self and I am going to be installing a very old heatarola Intency fire air duct coal stove but I'm burning wood in it and would like to use 6in flue instead of 7in since 6 is easier to get at my hardware store does any one know if it is ok in the long run? I have used the stove on 6 before but not vented in to any chimney I did it to warm a outside party I had!! or should I just use 7 if i can find and the parts and pipes? Also when I install it in my shop. I plan on venting the stove out and turn left horizontal into a raised up 35gal drum on it's side with one removable baffle and then out the top of the drum and through the steel container wall in to the next room and turning right in to the I think 14 or 16in 15 foot round concrete chimney ( Made out of old non used sewer pipes) total single wall flue before chimney aprox 10feet and 3 90's and one 45 going into the drum, but I can remove The 45 if I have to and pipe the stove into to back of the drum and out the top front . Will this thing still draft right ?? or will it take a long time to get going?? Thanks to any one or people with tips or help or ideas Thanks BEN AKA TORCH PS. If more info is needed just ask!!!!
