2 pipe steam

a few questions, on 2 pipe steam the customer wants to replace 3 rads that are kind of in the way (which they are) and swap them out with sun rads that are in the wall to gain some space is this something that can be done, I think so but just asking, I would like to see a picture of a recess rad with the steam trap and shut off valve.

    If there's room in the bottom of the Sunrad, you can put the trap and valve there. Otherwise, they can go in the basement under the rad.

    Thanks steam head, will moving the rads a few feet over would that mess the overall steam getting to the radiators, which brings me to my next question, I looked at the boiler piping what bothered me was the supplies on top of the peerless boiler just went up to the main run, i will take pics in a few days,

    As long as they are pitched properly, and you don't reduce the pipe sizes, you should be OK.
