I have a relatively simple question. I live in a 60 year old house with gas hot water heat and 1921 American Radiator radiators. I was about to retile a room with a radiator in it and wanted to pull the radiator out for ease of tiling. I can't seem to find any literature on the subject and want to make sure I don't cause any damage to my system. Is there anything I need to know before I proceed with removing the radiator? Thanks in advance.

Water has to be drained from the boiler below the radiator. If on the second floor, not much water will need to be removed. If on the first floor, water will need to be drained below that radiator. You may as well drain the entire boiler and work from there. Keep in mind that when you fill it, you will have to "Bleed" the radiators again.
