sounds good,

Is the flue the 'rhino' type with the up turned nose? and did you get kit A in the end?

a good idea at this stage is to see if the little PRV stub and nut can be unscrew. I have found some that are rock hard to unscrew and almost have to take the boiler off the wall to unscrew them. I think they pre-wet the washer or something? by the time it gets to you it has dried and stuck solid.

so good so far I hope :-P

what I like to do is put a full bore valve as a drain on both the flow and return under the boiler. so you fill from one side and drain through the other then swap.

:lol:

btw I forgot to say to watch for loose nuts inside the boiler. what sometimes can happen is when you tighten the valve under the boiler it can loosen the one above inside the boiler.

if you do get any water in the boiler, intergas have kindly proved a sump under the boiler on the right hand side under the pump. there is a little plastic cap to drain any water away.

not to worry john, we all have forgetful moments :wink:
