Unless I am reading & looking at this wrong are you saying you used the isolation valves on the gage glass to try to adjust water level? If so you are not adjusting the water level at all, only contorting the apparent water level in the gage glass. Where is / what kind of water level control is the boiler supplied with and where are it's connections to the boiler?
: I am trying to get the water level set in my steam boiler. The level was getting too high, system was flooding, and I started playing with the knobs (shown in this picture: http://www.stabilimenta.com/ebaypics/balancing.jpg). The bottom knob leaks unless it is all the way open or closed. So I set it fully open. Then I adjusted the top until I was able to get some of the water out of the system without the automatic feed kicking on. It's now about an inch from the bottom of the glass tube. It seems to be working, but I'd like some idea of how this is SUPPOSED to be done! Thank you, thank you.
