Riser horizontal runs?

Timco Member Posts: 3,040
I am making a new header for a smith 11 section boiler and had a question I did not see in Lost Art. After coming up the 24" to header from water line should I run horizontally to get the header lined up with the return tap for the equalizer or just close nipple from riser to header and run across to return below the equalizer? Second is manual shows LWCO's piped on side of boiler, but any reason why not to pipe them so they sit in front of boiler for ease of weekly blow-down?

Just a guy running some pipes.
