I am trying to determine the age of a Bryant Boiler...
Model # 234 5GW
Serial # 16X12408

The numbers are my best guess, because the data plate is very difficult to read.

Any help would be appreciated.

April 1988 maybe. What year was the house built?

The home was built in 1904.

Well that doesn't help!

Based on this, I would say April 1970 is the best I can find.

DDHoffman shared this on a different thread. I don't know if it will help, but check it out.

Here is the best source for determing the manufacturing date of either a Water Heater or HVAC system.
