Just acquired a ruud no. 25 in very good shape. Has no piping to the burner. Does anyone have a link or knowledge of this heater? Would like to see if maybe it had legs and how the gas hooks up.

Hello,  The Ruud 25 is a sidearm heater. It's supported by the piping hookups to the tank. You should see a burner inside of the unit.  Under that is a supply tube that fits into the burner with a cone shaped mating surface and I believe a twist to hold it into place. At the bottom of that tube is a threaded port that should have a shutter to adjust air to the burner and a gas valve to shut it down.  There would be no other control as it was not an automatic heater. Attached is an image of a similar heater's supply tube and valve.  :cool:Yours,  Larry

Wow that's a lot of weight to be supported by the tank piping! Mine only came with the bare burner. Any leads on parts online ? Or just keep checking eBay? Your help is greatly appreciated.

Hello,  I doubt parts have been made for these things for a couple of generations :?  Ebay is the right place to be looking. :cool:

Yours,  Larry
