I avoided him from day 1. I bought steam books and figured it out myself.

I have a simple one pipe gas steam system in my house, 2 mains, 10 rads.

Step 1 (from steam book) - Turn down the pressure! DONE

Step 2 - I want to replace all radiator valves (or vents?) with the same kind. All different some broke.

Mistake 1 - My cousin owes my dad a favor. - Dad insists, I cave.

I Write down what I needed. 10 Hoffman 1A's 2 Hoffman 75's (right?)

Dad leaves me a bag. In it are -

10 - Heat-timer Varivalve Quickvents(??)

2 - Hoffman No 4 quick vents

Question? - Should I trust my cousins judgement (I don't thats why I'm here) or should I scrap it and just go buy what I wanted?
