Vibrating heating pipe

I have an oil fired hot water boiler with all zone valves and a super store for domestic hot water. Piping seems to vibrate periodically but can't seem to figure out the source yet . Could it be a zone valve fluttering

    Is the zone valve an "auto mag "type? if so they can vibrate and make all kinds of noises

    They are Taco zone valves and heads. Seems to happen more when burner is running and creates turbulence throughout the system for several minutes then goes away. We just had the oil burner tuned up too

    Try the copper oil line between the tank and burner. The tech probably moved it a little during service
