Upspete, how about another pic of the radiator that is always cold or warm at best on the top floor with the cover off. Then the techs can look at all the photos and give you better advice. Thanks.

Thanks jmon. The new rad is hooked up exactly like the original one. I basically just cut the old pipes and attached the new ones. The boiler shuts down at around 170 degrees.

I think it's just air moving around. The 2nd floor bathroom rad was hot last night, cold this morning. I bled out some air and it got half warm. Waited awhile and it got cold again. Bled it some more and it got half warm again. The rest of the rads are working. The house is now up to 71 degrees. The wife and kids have stopped complaining (except for the cold bathroom). I'll wait and bleed it again later.

Glad everything is working now. Could just be air in the lines. Thanks for the update. When bleeding the lines, start from the bottom and work up.
