boiler wiring question

Hi,
I just installed a slant fin XL-30 boiler with an indirect water heater.Used an Argo 3 zone switching relay with priority for indirect. The guy who helped me with install put a jumper wire between T and T on the aquastat control that came on the boiler so the boiler would maintain temp. I would like to remove this jumper and have a cold start set up. Would this be the right choice or should I leave it alone?
Thank You

I don't like to see pin style boilers set up for cold start. Your Slant Fin is a pin style boiler.

Thanks for the info. Just trying to save as much fuel as possible.
By the way, the Turbomax indirect I was asking about on another thread works good. Its an on demand water heater and the wife is happy to take a hot shower now.

Pin Boiler

A "Pin" style boiler would have hundreds of small (grease fitting size) cast iron "pins" which stick into the flueways to increase surface area & slow down the flow of exhaust gas (heat) thru the boiler. Here is a picture of a pin style boiler. All of the little dots above the flame are the "pins". http://www.crownboiler.com/products/res_oil/tobago.asp
