Don, I just realized that I posted back that I installed the pump in the bypass, not so. It is installed in the return line, but it is close to the bypass, not much options for the placement.

Q. I plan to run vertical pipe to the floor, but I have to get a piece. It is a KAA-2, Keystokers instructions require the bladder tank off the top of the boiler, not much I could do other than that. The tank I installed for the domestic coil is in line.

Coaledsweat, good idea on the dirt leg.

Here are some pics of my little Gentleman Janitor GJ-671. I converted this to run an EFM S-15 stoker unit.

This boiler was converted to oil a long time ago. They mounted the oil gun right in the fire door.

I cut the hole square and mounted a piece of 6"x6" wood stove glass in it. Now I have a fire view Gentleman Janitor!

This one was done quick & dirty. I cut an EFM sized hole in the GJ stoker mounting plate, drilled the 3 holes for the EFM feed pipe sealing collar and nailed it together.

I flushed the boiler out real good and that's all. The EFM was a running unit and I just stuck it in there. After I got it running, I had to re-face the drive pawl so it would stop skipping teeth.
