Need to move some cast iron radiators

Quickly...I found this forum while researching how to disconnect and relocate some old radiators in my new (to me) home. Looks like a lot of great information, which is a good thing, since I am a serious rookie in this department.



anyway, the system as far as I can tell.

-originally steam, based on the size of the pipes in the basement.

-two pipe system, for feed and return.

-two year old boiler.

-all piping is exposed between floors

-house is balloon framed,2 1/12 story, built around 1910.

-the current heating set up looks to be at least the third that this house has used.



I need to disconnect two of the radiators immediately so that I can get at the walls behind them for the renovation that I am doing. Once that is done, I intend to relocate them, in the same rooms, but to more advantageous locations. This will involve no new plumbing from the basement, but will require adding/subtracting as much as 36" of horizontal pipe length, depending on the room.



If I could find a heating contractor who would take the job, I would. Since I can't I am looking for tips and experienced opinion on the best way to go about this.
