Too much to listNot sure what they were thinking
I don't know where to start
2 in header?
Bullheaded tee,no swing joint
16 in. A Dimension
Level mains and back pitched drip returns
Main air vents 27" above waterline, above boiler
Plugged pigtail & 3/4 90 for presuretrol
Hartford loop close nipple 2 " above waterline
Auto feeder wired wrong not working
boilerLooks like that boiler should be in a pit.
SteamThis is why drop-headers were invented. But, then again, knuckleheads think a dropped header is just a way to get a bruised toe.- Joe Starosielec

drop headerA drop header wouldnt work there, He said there is 16 in of a dimention. It needs to be in a pit or needs a condesate pump.
Header and pumpIn my opinion it needs a drop header and a condensate pump.Weil-McLain EG-45 connected to 392sqft of radiation via two 2" risers into a 3" drop header and 2" equalizer. Using Rectorseal Steamaster water treatment to greatly reduce corrosion in the boiler.

Hartford Loop?It looks like a completely dry return to me. Probably not a good idea with that A dimension. It probably calls for water mid-cycle, so add "fluctuating water line" to the list of troubles.
I'm not sure how you measured that A dimension. Is that from the max water line to the header? If there's more than 28" from the water line to the main a drop header should work.1983(?) Peerless G-561-W-S
3" drop header, CG400-1090, VXT-24
A dimensionI measured A dimension from where the
Feeder satisfies the lwco.
At that point it was 2 in below Hartford loop
It was a toss up weather to raise up above
Close nipple or get as much distance as possible.
I would like to pipe the drip down into a wet return and then back to the boiler
