My radiators are as old as they get in the
1860's house. In doing rennovations I have
to remove each on to replace the wide plank
floorboards. I just shut off the valve with
the pipe union and use a large box wrench to
unscrew the union joint. The ball joint
should be treated carefully. If the valve is
too old and does not close a new union and end
screwed in place of the radiator or wait till the
spring when the heat is off.
Moving the radiator is difficult as it is
extremely heavy. I use a two wheel appliance
cart. If you drop it it will go through the
floor to the basement.
iT is a good time to clean it and paint it.
Watch the air valve as it can easilly be
