Connecting Circulator Pump

Ihave read these forums and followed alot of great advice on other topics. Now I am I have a problem, because I failed to write it down....

Recently the flanges on the circulator pump cracked and water was spitting everywhere. So I called in the local plumber to get it fixed (Not fond about playing around with a boiler)... anyway, to replace the pump and flanges his quote was $900. I remember seeing the costs of a new circulator online and thought his quote was really high.. Anyway. I decided to do it on my own....

Picked up a Bell & Gossett P58671 and the flanges... replaced everything. Filled the boiler back up with water and then I went to wire the pump to a honeywell R8182D, this is where I want to smack myself. I forgot how the wires reconnect...

The pump has a white wire and a black wire. I am assuming that the black wire is the "neutral" wire but I dont know where either one goes... Does the bacl wire connect to the b2/c2 or the c1

I am just worried about wiring it wrong and "poof" circulator is fried.

If anyone can help I would truly appreciate it, as it is 20 degrees outside and the house is starting to really cold. Snow on the way too. LOL

Normally you remove the wire from the pump so that you have a cable with a white and black wire.

Did you pull the wire out of the control box ?


P.S. In electric.........white is ALWAYS neutral.

I pulled the wire from the pump out.. they were white and black.
I originally took the wires off from the honeywell so that I can get the pump off.
That is where my problem is.. I have the white and black from the pump and do not know where I put them on the honeywell

Thanks for the tip on white wire being neutral
