very old wood boiler needs wiring

I am posting this for my husband.... we have installed a very old wood boiler, the only thing we know about it is: labeled DEEP WOODS Tomah wisconsin. Now as far as the plumbing goes that is done, we cannot figure out the wiring though. We are looking for any diagram that would help us in hooking up the old thermostat we had for the previous boiler, there are a lot more wires with this boiler than before. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks

klc,
I am going through an issue with mine, trying to figure out the wiring. One thing that helped make it easy for the forum members to help was to get the manufacturer and part numbers of all of the "attachments" to the boiler. At a minimum, there should be an aquastat (t-stat, but for water) that goes into the water jacket. It is essentially the controller for the boiler. There should also be the t-stat in the house. Mine also had a "zone controller", a seperate box on the wall that controlled the upstairs radiators. The inside of the covers should have a sticker showing the wiring diagram and the part number. I also got some favorable answers when taking a picture of each of the components. In this forum, it appears they post them on Image hosting, free photo sharing & video sharing at Photobucket (sign up and get a free account, upload and label the pics, then post the link in the forum).

I know I didn't answer your questions directly, but hopefully more information will find someone with similar equipment.

I agree, I am going to need more info on this wood boiler.

Being I've never been around this system, I am moving you over to the boiler section.

I appreciate your advice, I will try to get pictures of the componets. There were no pictures or any diagrams that came with this boiler. There are also no identifing marks numbers or anything.
