    I was given a cast iron wood boiler that I want to use in my barn. I probably won't hook up water to it 'til next year. I'm wondering if I leave the water input and output open, if it will hurt to burn wood in it with no water circulating through it? Thanx...Bob H.


    Don't do it! You'll ruin the boiler. Get a 55 gallon drum kit of a hardware store tin stove if you need temp heat.

    You'll ruin the seals between the section and maybe even crack the castings.
