Default I R teh HillBillay

So, being the cheap-ass that I am, I used an old radiator from a forklift as a heat exchanger for my Central Boiler, in the plenum of my house furnace. Just turned it on, and it works awesome.

I actually have the "correct" one for the pole barn. It is a 250,000 BTU unit, with a built-in blower. The boiler is 500,000 BTU. So we can heat the pool in the spring.
It is funny as hell, to open the utility room door, and see an old radiator sticking out of the furnace.

I installed a used radiator in my furnace. I filled it with cheese because I didn't have any water. Doesn't work worth a damn but it smells good.
