Why are you brazing that old coil? it looks like it's on it's last leg if it's got that many pin holes. How did you end up with that split? Is it a hydronic coil that froze?

Those are 2 different coils. One is hwh, and the other is chilled water. Those aren't pinholes, all the repairs were splits due to freezing. We fix them because we can, and it's easy. One froze cause a damper stuck open, and the other was cause we lost steam.

When I first came to Idaho, I worked for a state hospital here. We were always repairing coils. Lots of heating and cooling units to take care of, including high pressure steam.
