Where to pipe outside wood boiler

As I've been sketching my piping layout for my TT solo 60, I thought someday I might like to install an outside wood boiler.  I know I'll need an HE but where do I actually install the piping to the existing piping that I will be installing now, so I can put in the necessary T's and valves that will be capped off.  Also are there any critical distances that I should be aware of for my primary piping, I'll be using Taco 4900 air sep and either closely spaced T's or hydro-sep, is there anywhere else that I should consider the distance.  Also on the secondary side I was planning on putting the ZV about 6-8 in apart, sound OK.  Thanks

    John Siegenthaler has detailed wood boiler piping in his book, Modern Hydronic Heating. A dump zone and/or a buffer tank is usually required to prevent overheating of the system.
