when my burner was throwing sparkles i cleaned everything and/or replaced some things in the burner. my problem was the metering pump screen and filter were almost plugged. cleaning them solved my problem.

Yes, that is correct.  I believe they call it a 007 o-ring.

Greetings turbopwr68!  Glad you stopped by.  Like you, I started out with a forced air system in my garage, soon to find out that I had way more heat than I needed in the garage.  Next, it was off to find a way to get some of that great heat into the house.  So on with the boiler project.  You may have seen it, but if not, you can find it here:
http://wasteoilheaterforum.com/index.php?topic=208.0

I think your use of the built in domestic hot water heater is a good choice.  Like you said, its already there, might as well use it.

Pex?  Even a non plumber like me was able to work with this stuff.  Bought me a crimper on ebay and went to work.  A guy I work with calls PVC tinker toys for big boys.  I'd probably say the same for this stuff.

Getting the boiler up off of the floor is a great idea.  I have mine on a row of cement blocks.  I cant imagine having it right on the floor.

Good luck on your project.  Keep us updated.  We love pictures!  Give us a holler if you have questions.

Well there you go Russ. I don't know a lot about these closed loop systems but that certainly sounds like a good idea running anti-freeze.

That is a nice setup.  Clever constant level tank.  They are using a pump and the excess just flows back into the tank.  Do you have email contacts for these people?  We should invite them to this site.  We need more people!
