By the way, I am a she not a he, lol, and with all the help that everyone is giving me I think I can get this done.
hopefully the box has the 3 JC relay/control boxes, aquastat well, aquastat bulb, mount rails for JC parts,draft control servo motor and mount bracket for it. you will need a 120V powe line to power up the controller setup. i have my power line with a switch in it, so it can be turned off during non heating season.
to be a bit more help full will need to know what controls water flow to zone(s) in house. zone valves? circultor pumps with back flow valves? etc. pictures of plumbing where of controls would help.theres DEFINITELY one item thats need to be wired in, A DUMP ZONE in case boiler ever over fires, gets excessively to hot. theres 2 ways to do it, either a 24v circuit using exsisting zonevalve, circulator relay, or 120V to a circullator thats dedicated to a radiant heat output thats not normally used. 24v is easiest to wire and setup, plus costs less.
