Trying to figure out my 2 pipe vented system
Hey all - I've been lurking for a bit now trying to figure out the system I have in my old (1892) house. From what I can tell it's a 2 pipe vented system that hasn't had much love in a long time. I've been going through and repacking leaky valves. Nobody local seems to have vents so those are on order. I've gotten one so far (a Hoffman 1A), unfortunately it seems to pop in and out once the system gets up to temp.
I also have some banging when things get warm. I'm trying to track down the issue..part of which might have been dirt that had been piled on top of the pipes in the crawlspace. I've been digging at that, but any other thoughts on stopping it would be appreciated.
Since folks like pics, here are a few of the boiler. I can't see any model number on the outside...
