I have a Weil-McLain VHE serial 3 broiler for my water baseboard heating
system. It is about 21 years old and is working good but worried about
the flame color. The 1st 3/8" of the flame is blue but the rest of upward
flame is orange/yellow. This is the 1st time I have bothered to check it.
Could have been this way since new.. Had a flakey installer. I am
wondering maybe if the nozzles are wrong, being for natural gas instead of
propane. I I have cleaned the 6 burners and check the exhaust for
restrictions but didn't help..

Maybe you should call your fav local tech to service the boiler... You might
also want to do a little research on the normal design service life of your
boiler... especially considering that its been neglected since day 1.
Call your local public service you can not use same nozels
on natural gas and propane, on some system can be adjusted
but on some they must be acutaly changed.
I am not in that buisness strnog suggestion get right person to check it out.
