wiring new boiler

Hello all, I have a question about wiring a new 2 zone boiler system. I'll be using an ARGO 861-2 control relay with two 4 wire zone valves, but only one circulator pump. each of two stats will be controlling its respective valve, with the corrisponding end switches on their T1/T1 and T2/T2 terminals. The A & R terminals will send power to the burner. Sounds like I have to jump out the circ. pump to the second set of terminals. Is this correct? Also there is a priority setting, would that need to be in the on Position? or does it not matter?

Thank You.

The Argo 861-2 is not intended for use with zone valves. It is for use with a circulator for each zone.

Here is a link to a Crown installation manual. It shows pretty good wiring diagarams for various configurations. I would expect the wiring to be very similar to your boiler.

Hope it works out for you. Some companies' manuals do a better job of showing piping or venting, but Crown has about the best wiring diagrams I've seen.
