Do you need a check and shutoff for each pipe and both output into one, or can you just combine both inlets into one check and shutoff with one pipe out? Where would this valve sit - side of boiler or top delivery? What size inlet pipes? I'd guess 3/16" OD for 3/4 scale.

two check balls, two inlets - one outlet?
Too many things going on to bother listing them.

Hello squandt,
Please have a look on my topic Class A at Build Log, page 9:

Maybe this would be helpful?
