EFM Motor Noise

Stoker Coal Boilers automatically feed the coal and have controls and pumps just like any conventions boiler. They are intended to be used as a primary heat and often have domestic hot water coils as an added bonus. They can be set up independently or in dual sytem with your existing oil/gas boiler. They can accommodate both hot water base board or steam plumbing.

In the pictures, the hole at the end of auger by the housing should have a grease fitting right?
or is that just an oil port?

That is an oil port, although I have seen then tapped and a grease fitting installed. If you add oil occasionally it will last a lifetime.
