Just checked, there is oil flowing, what next?
Expert:  Brian replied 1 year ago.

Ok you can check the solenoid by removing it from the stem of the oil pump and putting a metal rod through the hole in it (screwdriver ) reset the boiler if it goes magnetic before it locks out its working. Then you will need to start checking pump pressure with a gauge.

Unfortunately it is a process of trial and error.
