Most likely air bound or there isn't any pressure in the boiler. Also check to make sure you opened everything after you changed the drain.
The air vent will get most of the air but not all of it.

It is. Like any other system tho the antifreeze will eat away at the gaskets on other components( relief valve, circs) it doesn't hurt the boiler.

You can put a mixing valve OK the indirect and crank up the water temp in the tank. You'll almost never run out. In directs are more efficient than a stand alone water heater. The other option could...

Trooper if you have an extrol on your system go flick the top and bottom. You will hear the difference. If there's no difference in sound it's full of water. Too easy.

The top and bottom of the circ will have a groove for the ring gasket. They won't leak. If you reuse the old flanges just make sure they are clean.

Glad it worked. 20 is a little high. Make sure the air vents are open and I would adjust the 1156 down a little. You need to drain the pressure out of the boiler before you check the tank. Make sure...

9/16s wrench. They're tough to get out but they'll come out. The problem with a tee is that there is a shift behind the gage that needs room. It also needs to be inside of the boiler not in a pipe.

Yea it is. Maybe not 3/4 tubing but it's common to see steam converted to hot water. Usually you would want to see bigger tubing to fill the 2 inch pipes but if works it, it works.
