This New Yorker model WC-120 is the best and most desirable of the New Yorker Coal-Wood boilers.
Unlike the New Yorker models WC-90 and WC-130 which have a firebox flue outlet, with only an angled steel plate as a so-called 'baffle', this model WC-120 has 'wet walls' and 24 fire tubes that efficiently capture the heat from the flue gas before it passes out of the smoke box flue outlet.
A clean heat exchanger increases the efficiency of a boiler; and New Yorker has made cleaning the heat exchanger fire tubes easy -- the top is secured with 8 brass nuts, which don't rust or seize up from the heat.
And as shown in the photos, with the cover off there is straight-on, clear access from above to all the fire tubes, which makes it quick and easy to keep them clean and efficient. The fire tubes are 1.5" diameter, and I have included a new 1.5" long handled wire brush for cleaning them.
The smoke chamber is symmetrical, so it can be turned to have the flue outlet on the rear, the left side, or the right side, whichever location makes the installation more convenient. Since the boiler can accommodate any installation circumstance, there is no need to compromise where it is placed, and there is never a need to use a contorted smoke pipe.
The BTU output is 120,000.
It weighs about 900 pounds.
The outside measurements are 48" high, 24" wide plus the blower, and 29" long.
It has heavy duty shaker grates with an External shaker handle, and a full size ash pan.
It has a domestic hot water coil.
The boiler has been cleaned, pressure tested, and painted. It has new gaskets on the doors, and smoke chamber.
The casing has been sanded, painted on both sides with gloss oil-enamel, and the insulation replaced. Note-- as shown in the photos, the left side casing is banged and dented; the other sides are in good condition.
All of the boiler fittings have been cleaned and are ready for your new piping.
The controls and combustion blower are in good condition; and yes, it does have the two gang electrical box with on/off switches, and the adjustable air inlet plate for the blower.
In short, the boiler is in very good condition, ready to be installed. No disappointments here.
Included is an Owners Manual which has installation instructions, piping and wiring diagrams, adjustment and maintenance instructions. Parts are available from New Yorker Boiler Co., in Hatfield, PA.
Keep in mind that when someone places the first bid, eBay automatically removes the Buy It Now option.
New York State Sales Tax must be added to the final bid amount, unless you provide a valid Sales Tax exemption certificate, or have the boiler shipped out of New York State.
For the benefit of those who like to play the 'auction game', or like to put in snipe bids during the final seconds of an auction, this is a NO RESERVE auction, which means the last bidder will get the New Yorker. For the benefit of those who recognize the value of this boiler and want to own it, there is a Buy It Now button. Either way, an immediate $200 deposit through PayPal is required. The $200 deposit is the maximum I will accept through PayPal, the balance is due within 5 days and must be paid by check, or other means that does not extract a fee from me. Keep in mind, the boiler does not leave here until full payment has cleared my bank, which typically requires 7 to 10 days. If you want to pick up the boiler sooner than that, bring cash.
I am sure you won’t be disappointed with the boiler, and I want you to be satisfied with your purchase. Therefore, if you come in person to pick it up and for any reason are not satisfied with your purchase, I will cancel the sale and give you a full refund. On the other hand, I want only serious bids, therefore if you fail to timely pay the balance due, the deposit will be forfeit, and I will re-list the boiler.
I can load the boiler onto your open truck or trailer. Shipping the boiler is possible, but it would be up to the buyer to make all arrangements and pay all costs of shipping. Estimated shipping weight is 970 pounds; use the shipping calculator to get a freight cost to your location. Please add $50 to have the boiler prepared and put on a freight truck. Once the boiler is loaded for transport, the sale becomes final.
DISREGARD THE BOXES BELOW LABELED PAYMENT AND SHIPPING. THEY DO NOT APPLY TO THIS SALE, BUT I WAS UNABLE TO DELETE THEM.
