    What's the back story here? Why isn't this pre-wired from the factory? Is this a second-hand boiler?

    You HAVE TO get a pro in there. After it's wired up, the combustion & draft need to be set up with an analyzer, gas pressure confirmed with a manometer, and safety controls tested.
    You saved all the money you can doing most of it yourself.

    It was new but i had someone come in that supposedly was going to do all the work, plumbing etc and he took all the wiring apart. I pretty much seen and didn't like how he didn't go by code on certain things, so i paid him for his time and asked him to leave. That's where i started this whole project by my self. I really just want a pro to come in and set this baby up at this point the correct way as you mentioned with an analyzer to confirm correct numbers.

    There are some great ones in NYC

    Keep in mind not many contractors like to come in at this point and assume all the liability of finishing up a job, because we've all been hit with "Once you touch it you own it".

    Post some more pictures back a little farther if you can.
