new circulator replacement

I want to replace an old Texaco circulator with a new Taco 007. Is there anything I should know before swapping them out.
I am a pipefitter by trade and have some plumbing and heating experience but it has been awhile.

thanx

You should have no problem.

Are the connection sizes and flange-to-flange dimensions the same? You may have to drain the system - unless there are isolation valves.

The 007 motor has to be correctly oriented. Follow the directions.

Those Taco wet-rotor pumps have only one moving part - the cartridge. You might want to keep a spare cartridge on hand in case the pump conks out on the coldest day of the year.

Thanx for your reply Mike Speed 30.
I installed the 007 ok but I am not getting any heat from that zone. Is their any way to bleed the air from the pump?
The flow direction is going the right way but I think it may be airbound.
