Cool add hot waterbaseboards

I am adding two new finned base boards on the 2nd story level on the back side of a wall directly behind two radiators that are incased in the wall;it is a loop system that appears to be a single zone.I have the hydronic base boards in place ready to continue and link them into the system.I have run copper from the base boards and plan on using dielectric unions to connect to the steel pipe.In previous posts it was recomended that I size everything up witch I have done for sufficient heat.and now I am ready to connect(supply or return side ?).becouse the in wall rads are directly behind the new base boards I am assuming I can use the vents on the exsisting rads witch are obviously higher to bleed the air.I have a couple of photos of the weil-mclain boiler at http://www.flickr.com/photos/skotspics
how do I proceed?. Thank you

Are you replacing the radiators with baseboad or putting the baseboard in series with the radiators? Is this a series loop or diverter (monoflo) tee system.

Pictures?

Any chance of getting some pics of your proposed installation? You can post them on photobucket.com or similar site & provide a link here. Without seeing what you are trying to do, I envision some complex piping.

Do it without the period at the end of the site posted right above yours. It works. .

Sorry I still don't understand how you are going to do it without having pipes crossing.

looking for info

I am going to have the system supply go through the base board 1st then through the radiator and then back to the basement .What I really need to get is the proper procedure for shutting down the system( the manaul gives a pretty good idea) to add the new base board and then putting the little bit of water back in I will be removing befor I splice in and then how to most eficiantly bleed the air.
Thanks
nks
