    Chisel? Maybe a dremel tool.

    if you'er talking about the water coil in the fire box, plugged with "what"??

    Pull the QD off the front so the line is wide open .
    Turn 3 way valve to high pressure setting...engage the pump
    see if that doesn't blast crud out

    if not, pull the front panel, disconnect line at firebox
    Engage pump

    if still no juice/crud squirts out, follow Lee's suggestion......dynamite


    NOTE...the above is predicated on, you're sure your pump is primed, clutch did indeed engage and PSI gauge shows pressurization ...first

    .L.T.A.

    Run water thru backwards. I had one sit for a year. It was iron not copper.
