I added a radiator to my system and now need to know how to refill enough water


You could open the bypass and bring it up to @20 psi on the gauge to make it easier to bleed.

Hi Big Mike - Thanks for the assist on this. I believe the bypass you refer to is yellow lever in this pic. When opened I can hear waterfill. it is directly between the expansion tank abd the boiler . So when opening this I can watch the gauge reading change ? wipk http://i263.photobucket.com/albums/i...2/DSC04305.jpg

Yes it the yellow handled ballvalve right over top of the extrol tank. Open it a little and stop at @20 psi, this should help you bleed out the air faster. Is your new radiator hot?

Ok I have opened the yellow lever and YES the PSI went up to 20. Also, yes new radiator is hot and working great. No leaks. Now I can go an open and close bleeders and bleed out air right?
