Oil Boiler Locking Out


Recommended Posts

I don't know if I mentioned, but I used to like when we had an outside boiler in a rental house.  If it ever gave problems, you could pull the burner out, point it away from the house and turn it on, and see exactly what it was or was not doing.


Don't try that with an inside boiler.

The little key in the pump was worn and not engaging.




Roughly 9.5x3x2. Rang the BiL and asked if he had any. He said no, he usually makes them out of the end of a file. So I did (Draper). Quick job in the dark outside with a Fakita grinder, head torch out on the patio and a damaged pinky from the tree felling :(


Not perfect but it seems to work.
