Replacing old Aquastat (L8124A) with Beckett Aquasmart 7600A wiring issue

esandma Member Posts: 9
I'm replacing my old Aquastat (HoneyWell L8124A) with a Beckett AquaSmart 7600A. 
Looks pretty straightforward except that the L8124A did not have neutral connections to L2 or C2. It does have a neutral connection to B2, however.

Do I need to run a neutral wires to L2 & C2 terminals on the AquaSmart. 
If so, can I just jumper the incoming neutral wire (B2) to these?

    L2, C2 and B2 on the L8124A are all neutral so a connection of the house neutral to anyone is good. I would assume the AquaSmart is the same I do not have an internal wiring diagram of the AquaSmart however handy. You could check it if you have a multimeter.

    Yep... that makes sense.
