Question Burnham Pal-41 or Boilermate ?

I just bought a used (4-5 years old said the owner) Burnham Alliance model PAL-41. (Looks like a boilermate 41) I can't find any info on wiring it online. Burnham has changed there units to stone lined, so no help at there site. It has the dial temp control at the bottom of the tank. Below that two cables, boiler harness and pump harness. The boiler harness has two purple (violet) wires that i am not sure about. Does anyone know where they go? Thanks, Ed

This is the Amtrol line. It is more than 4 years old as Burnham discontinued that line about 8 years ago. I guess it could have been in someones warehouse somewhere for awhile. You can call the on Monday for a wiring diagram or check Amtrol's site.

Thanks for the info. I guess i should do a pressure check on it before i install it. The guy seemed honest and said it was working fine when he unhooked it. I got the tank, a Taco 007 and a SWG-5 power vent for $100 so i figured i would take a chance.

Always safer to pressure check with water than air in the tank... less stored energy that way... air is compressible, LOTS of stored energy... water not so much.
