Any idea what years and Lennox coal burners, this instruction sheet is for? No zip codes listed, so it is prior to 1963.

My guess is that with a forced air electric fan it is likely from the nineteen forties, maybe even the fifties. Last of the coal furnaces before fuel oil started replacing it in the 1950-'60's.

Lots of homes still heated with coal in the fifties when I was a kid. My first house on Long Island, built in 1922, had a coal boiler that was converted to fuel oil in the 1960's. Same with the house I grew up in and my grandmother's house in Brooklyn.
