"There are no radiators being fed by the boiler so it seems simple but I can't see where to air bleed this pump ".[/QUOTE]

Is the F&E tank full of water ? Are all rads full of water ?
You may have a blocked feed ,and system full of air.
Did you bleed the rad or drain it ,as you told us earlier.
I took the nut off where you bleed it to get a better flow.
The water went everywhere but that was no problem.

So the radiator didn't empty.

I was doing that because half of my (very ancient) downstairs radiators don't work and this system of "forcing a strong bleed" has worked for me in the past.

I am not sure if all the roads are full of water as some have not been used in 30 years.

Call a central heating engineer to help solve your problem ,and the highways agency to report the roads that haven't been used for 30 years.

I meant rads -not roads(bluddy autospell)

At first I wanted to say that this was just the hot water as that pump just does the hot water.

But ,yes I have downstairs rads that work from the same boiler but from a different pump.

Sorry for that.

The hot water seems to be back now as a result of turning that screw.

I heard a "whoosh" when I turned it and that may have been where the problem was.

Thats great , hopefully your sorted .
Just one thing.I just had a look at that screw that I was told by ianmcd not to touch and that it needed to be aligned with the pipe (if I got that right)

It is ,shall we say at I or 2 o' clock wrt to direction of the pipe. (ie not 12 o' clock)

Should I leave it as is since the circulation is fine or should I touch it again to align if with the pipe?

It is ,apparently the "isolating valve"
