    Yeah it's wired wrong. You're looking at the wrong diagram. Go to the manufacture's web site and get the right one. Also did you check your LWCO with a meter to make sure it's wired right?

    Dont get the WM, for one simple reason, its a pinner. Practically no one will clean it correctly, and this will shorten its life. I like a triple pass boiler with an indirect.

    Also, don't just trash those radiators, they are worth some big bucks, especially if they are ornate. You could post them for sale on the other-mentioned site.

    Hand pump only, or change the line. Also figure out why it is blocked--tank needs to be cleaned/treated, filter not near oil tank or never changed (blocked), line kinked, etc.

    Depending on how your house is insulated, new/old windows, for your size house, 930g/year (average) isn't really bad.
    You should also consider insulation & window upgrades (if needed).
