The thermostat on top of the furnace may be there to monitor the temperature inside the boiler. Can you show us a picture?

It is not good to set up a furnace to run using only a manual shutoff. You might forget and leave the room and then the furnace runs forever.
The average homeowner who lost his house in the Oklahoma tornadoes should move for good and not rebuild. Too much complexity watchdogging the contractor. Too much a chance to be defrauded.

The furnace will not operate until you make the circuit through the switch/T-Stat on top. Theres a reason for the T-Stat. Safety. And thats why it will not run until you find out how to wire a furnace.

Call someone.
