removed two radiators and relocated two drop risers on 1st floor leaving two remaining radiators above on 2nd floor due to walls being removed for kitchen renovation. heating system is an old gravity overhead system converted to a forced hot water system with a new boiler about 20 years ago. The problem now is after rerouting drop risers the two radiators above on 2nd floor are only heating at the top. Drop risers between 1st and 2nd floors are hot back to the boiler, problem seems to be a flow problem between the two tee's inside the 2nd floor wall going to each radiator, any ideas how to correct problem. Thank you

    Can you post some pics or a drawing showing before and after? An overhead gravity system is probably the most sensitive to modification of any.
