Refilling hot water boiler help!

I drained my boiler (Utica gas boiler from '85 with Fill-Trol expansion tank) in order to reinstall two radiators. After paying to have the radiators attached I can't afford to pay to have the pro's fill it. Where do I find the valve to fill the boiler and/or how do I manually fill it? There is no knob or on/off valve right by the boiler, but there is what I THINK is a safety/backflow thing. I can add pics if that will help. The gas and electric are both off and the radiators were already bled.

Since the valve is not at the tank...just trace the pipe back.
If you don't know how to do that you should have had the plumber do it when he was there...after hooking up your radiators I seriously doubt if having him point to a valve would have added anything to your bill.

Where was the water turned of when you drained the boiler? There is a feed valve in the line at some point, usually within reach of the boiler. Trace the line back, find the valve, open it.
If the radiators were bled, chances are the water was turned back on already. How else can you bleed them? You can't let the air out unless you let the water in.
There will still be a bit of air in the line, but that will expel over time and the fill valve will let some water in as needed.

Sure, add some pics if you can do that -- and assuming that this is a for-real post.
If you haven't re-filled the boiler, the radiators cannot have been already bled.
I cannot imagine anyone being paid to re-install two radiators doing the job and not turning the water back on to fill them and make sure that they do not leak. That's the part of the post that makes me wonder if it is for-real and not just posted to generate Internet traffic to the site where it is posted..

But don't they have plenty traffic already, since they take all the posts from AHR, or they could.
Why would replies to one of their stupid posts be better than the other posts on AHR?
