Holy Venting Batman!

I've always known my system was waaaaaay undervented.  Per the advice of the experts here I've finally begun venting my system properly.

I currently have NO main vents and pretty small adjustable Ventrites on all the radiators.

I just installed a MoM #5, a couple 6's, a C and a D.  I can't believe how much faster my system is getting hot!

Over the next week I'll be venting the mains too.  Should make an even bigger difference!

    Should have vented the main first, you might have saved yourself having to do as much upstairs :)

    Yep....but I have to build some bracing for the end of the main so I can really torque on it.  Right now it flexes too much when I whack it or try to loosen/tighten. 

    I'll be visiting the parents and will borrow my dad's 36" pipe wrench and cheater pipe.  Then the Big Mouth will be going on.
